DHARAMSHALA, October 15: Tibetan actor Shavo Dorjee’s short film ‘Last Note’ today won the short film competition of the 8th Tibet Film Festival happening simultaneously in Zurich and Dharamshala. This year’s theme of the competition is ‘Dream’.

Last year’s winner Kunga Rinchen came third this year. Pawo actor in his first project as a director deals with a man writing his last note and how he is going through various emotions such as confusion, rage and peace, which were shown through the dreams he has.

Speaking with Tibetan media on his win, Shavo said that he feels great and was honored by the appreciation he has received for the hard work and effort put in to make the film. He was also awarded with a cash prize of $400.

“Besides acting, I always had this craving to tell and direct my own story and one of the main reasons for me participating in this competition was to take the opportunity to tell my own story,” he said, sharing how he had managed this project with assistance from his friends.

With nine entries this year, the theme ‘Dream’ was brought to the big screen in various genres such as animation, horror and religion. Few films were also made based upon personal stories.

Namgyal Lhamo Jorden’s ‘Milam’ came second and won $300. The entry from New York presented the theme in a horror way. Whereas Kunga Rinchen, a monk filmmaker, with a spiritual undertone to his film ‘Life is a Cup of Tea’ showed the ‘concept of living in the moment’ through his actor’s dream of flying high in one moment and losing the love of his life in the next. The third place was awarded with $200.

Kunga Rinchen said that his coming third means the level of competition has increased with more and more budding Tibetan filmmakers coming through the ranks.

“Instead of feeling dejected, this has made me more determined to work harder and come out much stronger. I am really happy that the competition level has increased over the course of a year,” said the monk filmmaker.

Aimed at providing a platform for the Tibetan filmmakers and to encourage the art of filmmaking in the society, the Tibet Film Festival screened three movies from Tibet in the two days of the festival. As a sign of encouragement to those starting early in schools, the festival screened a short film made by Petoen School film Club.

The eighth edition of the festival closed with Tharlo by Pema Tseden, a filmmaker from Tibet at the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts (TIPA) today.
