Himalaya Film Festival USA - New York City 22 – 29 October 2010

New York City Meets The Himalayas – A Visual Feast At The Quad Cinema

Interested in the Himalayas? Interested in its people, culture, nature and
politics? Interested in beautiful movies? Then do not hesitate any longer,
take on the challenge, and come and enjoy the unique footage at our must-see
Film Festival.

The Himalaya Film Festival offers you a fascinating selection of
approximately 30 movies and documentaries of very high quality. The program
offers a great range of footage and visitors will be treated to
kaleidoscopic perceptions. Do not miss out on an excellent opportunity to
enjoy these rare and spectacular images!

This event is also an introduction to the everyday life of the region and
the lesser-known sides of the Himalayas. In fact, quite a lot of attention
will be given to breathtaking movies on, for instance, Tibet, Nepal and
Bhutan showing dramatic landscapes, heartwarming scenes of everyday life,
cultural gems and religious festivals. Real highlights!

The festival has become an established yearly cultural event known across
the Netherlands. Glenn Krishna Mitrasing, medical doctor by day and festival
organiser by night, says audience numbers continue to rise every year. It's
no small achievement that in the few years since 2003, when he launched the
first Himalaya Film Festival in Amsterdam, the event has done so well. And
it’s very likely to travel to other European countries in the future.
Meanwhile, the festival has been to Tokyo, Japan, several times, where it
was a big hit. No wonder it’s becoming more and more popular in Japan!

The program of the Himalaya Film Festival has been divided into sessions of
two or three movies each, that cohere around a common theme. The movies will
be screened at the Quad Cinema, a prime location in Greenwich Village, the
cultural heart of Manhattan. The Quad is frequented by passionate moviegoers
eager to see the best in independent, foreign and documentary movies. It is
a venerable theater owned and beautifully maintained by the same family
since 1972.

Come and meet the people living on the roof of the world.

Find out what inspires both participants and organisation.

Trailing through the Himalayan region, brings you directly in contact
with the country and its people, and helps to foster an appreciation
of the mountain environments.

Traverse through the Great Himalayan Range and appreciate the sheer
geographic diversity - from the verdant, forested valleys and tropical
jungles of Arunachal having amazing wildlife and the flowering meadows
carpeted with rare orchids, to the rugged terrain of the Trans
Himalaya that extends to the Tibetan plateau.
