The annual "Himalayan Film Festival" calls for entries for the fifth edition.
Date: 14 & 15 February 2009
Deadline: 1st of December 2008

The Himalaya have an abundance of ecological niches, ranging from
subtropical to arctic climates, and these mountain habitats support
vast quantities of flora and fauna. In the valleys, various ethnic
peoples have carved out settlements and continue to eke out an
existence in these harsh conditions.

 From afar, this image may appear to be eternal, but in reality the
Himalaya are anything but unchanging. This film festival shows some
of the dynamic changes affecting the area and provide the audience
with an intimate knowledge of the landscape and people of the region.
This Festival offers you the chance to experience the Himalayan
region, to travel beyond the image of the region as it is presented
in regular movies and meet the intriguing diversity, and uniqueness
of the Himalayas.

The general aim of the Himalayan Film Festival is to promote
documentary cinema and to give credit to documentaries and feature
films dealing with the Himalayan region in a wide sense of the term.
The festival is meant to be a chance for authors to exchange their
views at the screenings and following discussions.

The website has become an important
source of information for the more general film festival who seeks
Himalaya oriented film material.
