Tricycle BuddhaFest Online Film Festival Begins Next Week

This coming Monday, June 6th, the Tricycle BuddhaFest Online Film Festival will begin with Fire Under the Snow. This film is the story of a monk who was imprisoned by the Chinese for 33 years  for the "crimes" of peaceful demonstration and his refusal to denounce his teacher, who was not involved in politics at all. Makoto Sasa, the director of Fire in the Snow, was interviewed by Roshi Pat Enkyo O'Hara—herself a former professor of film—here.

Thursday, June 9th, With One Voice will follow. With One Voice is distributed by Alive Mind Cinema and is the story of the common spiritual goals of all mankind, and the ongoing dialogue between faiths.

Next week we'll feature a teaching from Ryumon Sensei, and an interview with the director of Colors of Compassion, Eloise de Leon.

And there are more great films to come! We're very excited to be able to bring you this one-of-a-kind event, and thanks to our friends and partners at BuddhaFest, who will host a live event in the Washington DC area June 16th-19th!

I am currently a sustaining member. My membership does not come up for renewal until August, 2011. How do I register for the Film Festival?

Hi Mark,
Already existing members just need to purchase a film festival pass. When already logged in, go to http://www.tricycle.com/upgrade and on the right side you will see the BuddhaFest column. At the bottom of that column it says, "Already a Tricycle Community Member? Click here to purchase your Online Festival Pass." That's the link you want.
