The Pakivalo Solidarity Festival, the event dedicated to highlighting Roma culture and to bridging the gap between the Roma community and the majority of the population, will take place this year between August 6th and August 8th at the Roma Culture Museum in Bucharest.

As part of the event, Hi Film Productions will offer for an auction several objects that were part of the props of Aferim!, the Romanian film that won the Silver Bear at this year’s Berlinale. The auction will take place on August 6th, after a screening of the same film and the funds raised will go to support the Roma Culture Museum.

The festival invites the audience to debates on various social themes, painting workshops for children, theater and street dance performances. The full program of the event is available here.
