Tibet Film Festival

NAME OF FESTIVAL: Tibet Film Festival

SINCE: 2008

WHERE: Dharamsala, India; Zurich, Switzerland


The Tibet Film Festival was founded in 2008 and is dedicated to Dhondup Wangchen, a self-taught Tibetan filmmaker, who was imprisoned for his film ‘Leaving Fear Behind’. The festival’s objective is to bring together the best of Tibetan filmmaking from inside Tibet and in exile and to be a meeting place for young Tibetan talents and thus contribute to the emergence of Tibetan filmmaking by solely focussing on Tibetan Filmmakers. This two-day film festival takes place simultaneously in Dharamsala (India) and Zurich (Switzerland).
