The Tricycle BuddhaFest Online Film Festival starts June 6th! There will be six films shown throughout the month—see the schedule of films here.Want to see all six films? Be sure to get your festival pass before the films begin playing. Festival passes are available to Tricycle Community Members. Not a member? Join here.
One of the films we're very excited to showcase in this festival is Crazy Wisdom, Johanna Demetrakas's documentary about the controversial but hugely influential Tibetan teacher Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Allen Ginsberg considered him his guru; Thomas Merton wanted to write a book with him; Pema Chodron was his student and Joni Mitchell wrote a song about him. Watch the trailer below.
