ABOUT ROLLING FILM FESTIVAL RFF contributes to the structuring of the Kosovar cultural sector by adding a community-dedicated event in the Kosovo cultural calendar, highlighting and raising awareness on Kosovo’s multiculturalism. “Folktale – The New Reality” is this year’s theme of the festival. Folktale is a story originating in popular culture, typically passed on by word of mouth over generations. In todays society the Roma lives are often seen as a folktale and sadly often treated as one. The transformation of the folktale towards reality is sometimes very close. The only question remains is “what is the reality and what is fiction in the Roma lives today?”.
