This Buddhist Film Festival
This Open Call invites film submissions worldwide for the Thus Have I Seen
Buddhist Film Festival 2012 (THIS BFF).
THIS BFF aims to promote awareness of the Buddhaâ€™s timeless Teachings
and the diversity of Buddhist cultures around the world through the use of film,
a contemporary medium. THIS BFF seeks films that, through good
storytelling and production values,
ï‚· Contemplate on the Buddhist philosophy and way of life;
ï‚· Introduce the immense cultural diversity of a 2,500 year-old religion
that has grown from being a missionary order in ancient India to
become a global religion today.
Films selected for showcase in the week – long festival will be a mix of invited
works curated by the Organiser and works selected from the Open Call.
THIS BFF is non-competitive and no prizes or awards will be presented. Films
may be in any language. However, non-English dialogue films must be
subtitled in English. We accept screening formats on 35mm, Digital Beta and
THIS BFF welcomes relevant films from any period.
