DHARAMSHALA, November 2: The sixth edition of the Dharamshala International Film Festival started off with ‘Mukti Bhawan’ in the presence of its lead actor Adil Hussian on the opening night at the Hermann Gmeiner Auditorium at Upper TCV School on Thursday.

Festival Founders Tenzing Sonam and Ritu Sarin opened the 4-day festival, which has over 33 feature films and documentaries, 14 short films and five children’s films lined up for screening in the two auditoriums - Hermann Gmeiner Auditorium and Dekyi Tsering Hall – of the school.

“This year’s special screening for Tibetan viewers is the world premier of ‘Out Of This World’. It is an updated version of an expedition film shot in 1949 by Lowell Thomas Sr and his son Lowell Thomas Jr during their three-months trip to Lhasa,” said Tenzing Sonam, Director of the festival.

Following the death of Lowell Thomas Jr last year, his daughter Anne Thomas will be presenting this film along with David Wright, the person responsible for giving Thomases’ old film a new life. “I think my father will be very happy. We have talked about it (film) earlier and he knew that we were going to do the project and he was very excited, said Anne.

DIFF’s screening also includes India’s official 2018 Oscar entry ‘Newton’ and Nepal’s last year entry White Sun.

Noted actor Konkona Sen Sharma will present her directorial debut ‘Death in the Gunj’ on Saturday.

The opening night began with a song performed by students of Upper TCV followed by prize distribution to the winners of DIFF’s Film Appreciation Competition, a community outreach of DIFF. 45 students from six different schools including Upper TCV and Petoen School competed in this competition. Samdon Lhamo from Petoen School won the first prize in the junior division.

“At first I was bit scared but I am proud that I have won a prize while representing my school,” said the sixth standard student from Petoen School.

Started in the year 2002, the festival aims to give the local community a platform for good alternative cinema and also to bring independent cinema to the mountains.
