Tibetan film treats this weekend

Posted at 5:15 PM on May 9, 2007 by Euan Kerr (1 Comments)

If you are in the vicinity of the Riverview Theater in Minneapolis over the next few days check out the Twin Cities Tibetan Film Festival.

The event is aimed at raising awareness of Tibet, both politically and spiritually. Ten firms will be shown in all, most of them documentaries.

The event opens Thursday evening with "Daughters of Everest," a documentary about the first all female sherpa expedition to the summit of Mount Everest. The screening will be introduced by explorer Ann Bancroft.

I chatted with festival co-director Cortland Dahl about what else is on offer at the event, and you can listen to it here.

Excellent Event
Wide range of Tibetan films which I found to be very interesting, enlightening and stimulating.
Well organized. Inviting.
Silent auction offers great diversity of items to buy and support the foundation.
I highly recommend this festival!
