12th edition, September 29/30, and October 1, 2017

The theme of this edition is BEING HUMAN

This year for the twelfth time the EYE in Amsterdam will be the heart of our being together for spiritual, international films during the Buddhist Film Festival Europe! A unique and well-attended event for meeting new friends, cinema lovers and wisdom seekers, centered on buddhist values, such as non-violence, interdependence, and Mindfulness, with the aim to contribute to a compassionate society.

On Friday evening September 29 at 19:00 the festival will open with the new documentary The Last Dalai Lama? (by Mickey Lemle), a very intimate portrait of the now 82 year old Dalai Lama. In addition to films from various Asian countries, there will be productions focussing on the science of mind, and films with a socially engaged theme that empower holistic perspectives.

Not to miss is the special event on Sunday afternoon October 1, presented by Mind & Life Europe, with a unique contemplative science program and a panel meeting. The full festival program will be available online beginning of September at www.bffe.eu and ticket sales will start on September 8 at www.eyefilm.nl.

We are looking forward to welcome you all!
