The series was first launched in 2007 and, spanning 28 countries, Mundi Romani was broadcast on Hungarian TV network Duna and was nominated for several awards. In 2008, the series received a nomination for Best News Documentary at Monte Carlo for “Trapped: the Forgotten Story of the Mitrovica Roma” and a year later the same film was shortlisted for the FIPA award for Best Reportage and Current Affairs.
Also in 2009, Mundi Romani’s film “Last Days of Sulukule” won Best Cinematographer at the Golden Eye awards. The following year, UNESCO formally honored the series with its Prize for the Rapprochement of Cultures. Mundi Romani has also won two First Prizes at the My Native Land International Television awards (2008 and 2009) in Ukraine.
Now, bigger and bolder than ever, Mundi Romani can continue to offer viewers a unique taste of each country we visit while covering human rights and cultural stories from a fresh perspective. We are very grateful for the support we have received so far, especially from the Open Society Roma Initiatives, which has helped Mundi Romani to make a mark on Romani filmmaking.
Taking the viewer on a journey into little known corners of the world, Mundi Romani works in tight cooperation with local Romani civil society to show their side of the story. We are passionate about travelling far and wide on a voyage of discovery and ultimately broadcasting a proud, positive and, most importantly, genuine message.
