"We Tibetans are looking for a legitimate and meaningful autonomy, an arrangement that would enable Tibetans to live within the framework of the People’s Republic of China."

The third edition of the Tibet Film Festival,
based in London, kicks off July 1 with the
international premiere of Road to Peace,
including a Q&A with director Leon Stuparich and
the Dalai Lama’s UK representative, Thubten Samdub.

The festival will take place in London throughout
July - the month of the Dalai Lama’s 75th
birthday - before going on tour from August.

The programme also takes in the UK premiere of
Dirk Simon’s When the Dragon Swallowed the Sun
and a performance by soundtrack contributor
Damien Rice. Offshoot events include a
performance by poet John Hegley, a music event
and a photography exhibition looking at the
issues of climate change and water on the Tibetan Plateau.

The festival is a non-profit initiative and this
year supports the Tibet House Trust and relief
efforts towards the recent earthquake in Kyegudo,
in the Kham region of eastern Tibet.
