Over the next two years, in the framework of FOCUS Roma Cinema Youth Project, we will work together to create an online roma cinema resources center for use in various educational and cultural contexts. We believe deeply in using the power of culture and films to fight for human rights. The FOCUS project challenges both negative and positive/exotic stereotypes of the Roma communities by promoting grass-roots cinema from inspiring filmmakers. The partners will develop a database of 100 films made by, about or with Roma, along with a non-formal educational toolkit to challenge stereotypes and racism.
