About CineRoma

Southside Film Festival and Romano Lav are delighted to present the re-scheduled CineRoma, the UK’s first Roma film festival, over the weekend of 27-29 September 2019 in Bike For Good (South) , Govanhill, Glasgow.

Southside Film Festival has worked with Govanhill based Roma charity Romano Lav’s youth group to select a programme of award-winning films from around the world along with UK premieres. At the launch event on Friday 27 th September , Romano Lav and Southside Film will discuss the significance of a Roma film festival and the role of cinema in promoting Roma culture, and will screen a short film made by the Romano Lav youth group to launch CineRoma. Each film will also be preceded by a short film explaining why it has been chosen and a “living trailer” made by the team behind CineRoma. The first film will be Korkoro, a cinematic tribute to the Roma killed in the Holocaust and an ode to life lived freely.

There are a further two screenings on Saturday 28 August , including: Our School , a touching story shot over four years following a group of Roma children involved in a school desegregation project and the moving documentary, and Taikon , about one of the most important and inspiring advocates of human rights in 20th Century Europe, a Roma woman called Katarina Taikon.

On Sunday 29 August , there will be a screening of An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker, a deeply moving portrayal of family and love under crushing institutional racism, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2013. The festival closes with Carmen & Lola , a 2018 Spanish drama about two young Roma women who fall in love, incurring the wrath of their communities and turning their families against them.

The full CineRoma Programme information is available on the Southside Film website.

All screenings take place in Bike For Good (South) and are un-ticketed, entry is by donation. CineRoma is supported by Regional Screen Scotland’s Challenge Fund and South East Integration Network (SEIN).
