Why this movie…

We propose you the most important cultural projectof the Aromanians from all the world: the first feature film in the Aromanian language, entitled “I’m not famous, but I’m Aromanian”. It is a profound Aromanian story with, and about Aromanians, which will be filmed in Romania, Greece, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Albania and the U.S.

The Aromanians have so far published books of poetry and prose, scientific books, have released music albums and have staged plays in their language. We have found uourselves in these artistic expressions and we have enjoyed it, but now it’s time to give something back to our culture, under the shape of one of the most complex and expressive of arts – cinematography. A film that can bring all Aromanians together. In order to reach our purpose, Aromanian associations from all over the world have promised us their support.

This project involves young and creative Aromanians, working in various fields and with different social status, who want to bring their culture to another level through a film they can find themselves in, wherever they are. It is an ambitious project, that is likely to bring great satisfaction to all those who support it .

Successful projects require the support of successful people. Given that Aromanians are known to be successful business people, we hope they will support our project and help us make a memorable film.
