Filmfestival AKE DIKHEA?
Workshop »Reflecting Film Festivals«
For identity-based film festivals, be they Roma film festivals or Jewish or queer or other film festivals, specific questions arise with regard to the organisers, the film programmes and the audiences addressed. Who is the festival aimed at? And with what implicit and explicit aims? What hopes or desires are associated with this visibility? And what difference does it make who the responsible filmmakers are behind a film? What are the political and aesthetic criteria for film selection?
Scientists, activists and filmmakers can sometimes find different answers to these questions. The workshop offers festival organisers, cultural workers, media professionals and other interested parties the opportunity to reflect these questions together. There will be small inputs and room for open discussions. The focus will be on audiovisual visibility, stereotypes and identity politics.
Lea Wohl von Haselberg is part of the jury of 2019’s AKE DIKHEA. She wrote her PhD thesis in Hamburg and Haifa on the depiction of Jewish film characters in (West) German cinema and television. She is a media studies scholar at Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf and an associate member of the Selma Stern Center for Jewish Studies. At present, she is working on a research project on German-Jewish film history.
(The Workshop »Animated Documentaries« is already booked out.)
»AKE DIKHEA? [YOU SEE?]« is a self-organized, international Roma film festival that will take place in Berlin in December 2019. The festival presents Berlin, Germany and the whole world from the perspective of Romani people: Which films represent us, which themes are important to us, how do we see ourselves and how do we want to be seen? We don't want to wait until someone gives us a voice. We want to help shape the social space ourselves and decide on the themes and structure of the festival events.
