The Ottawa Tibetan Community Association is organizing the 4th Ottawa Tibet Film Festival on Sunday, March 20th 2016 at the Mayfair Theatre. $10 or $6 for Mayfair members.

The festival’s goal is to raise awareness in Ottawa about Tibet: its culture, its religion, and its people. The 2016 Film Festival will give Ottawans a glimpse of what is happening in modern Tibet. Although there will be a variety of topics addressed in the films, the focus of this year’s lineup is the toll that resource extraction and development is taking on the rivers, grasslands and mountain areas of Tibet. 
 
Tibetan traditional food will be available for purchase and cultural performances (songs, dance) will occur throughout the day. We look forward to welcoming you at our festival.

Check out our program and schedule for this year!

 

The 4th edition of the Ottawa Tibet Film Festival will take place at the Mayfair on Sunday March 20th 2016! SAVE THE DATE!

Share the Stories of Tibet’s Land, People and Culture

OTTAWA – The Ottawa Tibetan Community Association (OTCA) is proud to present the third Ottawa Tibet Film Festival, with an exciting lineup of five films to bring together the idea of home, Tibetan reincarnations, an animated folk tale, the preservation of the Tibetan language, and a road trip through Tibet. The Ottawa Tibet Film Festival provides a platform for filmmakers from around the world to showcase their films about Tibet. This year’s festival, taking place Saturday March 21st, will showcase Tibetan filmmakers from Canada, New York, and Tibet.

Other festival highlights include guest speakers such as Thupten Samdup, His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s former Representative to Northern Europe, and performances of traditional Tibetan music and dances by local Tibetan community members. There will also be a silent auction, merchandise tables selling Tibetan goods, and the sale of traditional Tibetan food.

Forty percent of the profits will be donated to the Tibetan Resettlement Project Ottawa (TRPO) – a project supporting 90 Tibetan refugees living in rural India who are being resettled in Ottawa. In the past year, the TRPO has supported 35 refugees to make a home in Ottawa.
