2008 Wesak International Film FestivalPosted: 五月 28, 2008
The WIFF presents more than 10 Buddhist themed and inspired cinema from several countries – full length movies, documentaries, animation and children’s films.
Amongst White Clouds, one of the movies to be shown at WIFF.
This 2007 film was inspired by Bill Porter’s book (better known as Red Pine), Road to Heaven. It was awarded Official Selection at various film festivals in the US and Israel.
The objective of the WIFF is to use the audio-visual media to create greater awareness of Buddhism among the general public. This is the second such event, the first held in 2006.
The film festival is spread out over two weekends, beginning from Saturday, June 14 and closing on Sunday, June 22 2008. It will be held at the Malaysia Tourism Centre, located in 109, Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, a very accessible location near the Petronas Twin Towers.
Admission to all movies are FREE. Spread the news folks!
