DEAR FRIENDS OF THE BUDDHIST FILM FESTIVAL
First of all we hope that this message reaches you in good health and spirit. It has been a very uncertain and demanding time for all of us.
Due to the covid-19 crisis, the preparations for our film festival BFFE2020 are challenging us to take on a new and different approach. We will inform you about that development in the near future.
The message of the BFFE is more relevant than ever: a more compassionate society, based on values of non-harming and loving kindness. We live in a time of great suffering. Losing loved ones, the pain of separation, the injustice of racism, and the damage we do to our planet, are a few examples of what beings are going through. As we quoted on BFFE before: compassion is the radicalness of our time.
Due to the ongoing process of recovering into UNLOCK-DOWN we would like to offer you some of the films that screened in earlier BFFE film festivals and that have also shown on Dutch public television. The coming weeks we will share links on our Facebook page to some of the most inspiring and timely of these films that are still available in online archives.
The opening film for the Buddhist Film Festival Europe 2020 was scheduled to be The Great 14th: Tenzin Gyatso, The 14th Dalai Lama In His Own Words by Rosemary Rawcliffe. We bring to your attention that this film can be watched in an exclusive streaming taking place on June 27th and June 28th to celebrate His Holiness’ 85th birthday.

May this showing be of benefit to all.
Stay safe, and tuned for more upcoming films we like to offer you.
