The directors of all these movies will be coming to the festival to present their films and participate in Q&A sessions.
Festival directors, Ritu and Tenzing, are determined that the event will maintain its established momentum.
“This is our fifth year and it means a great deal to us to have reached this milestone,” said Ritu.
“DIFF has surpassed all our expectations; from starting out as a small event in a town with no cinemas to becoming a truly international festival, with filmmakers, guests and audiences looking forward to coming to here each year from all over the world.”
DIFF is presented by White Crane Arts & Media, a trust founded by Ritu and Tenzing to promote contemporary cinema, art and independent media practices in the Himalayan regions of India.
