Himalaya Film Festival Tokyo 2006

The Himalaya Film Festival Executive Committee will hold the Himalaya Film Festival Tokyo 2006 in August, 2006.
The Himalaya Film Festival is the only international film festival for documentaries on the Himalayan region. It began in 2003 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, established by Himalaya Archief Nederland, a Dutch NGO.

The Tokyo Festival will rethink the relationship between humans and nature in the context of the Himalayas. For this purpose, the festival is being jointly organised and hosted with NHK, the Japanese public broadcasting organisation.

2006 is the 50th anniversary of the successful ascent of Mt. Manasulu by a Japanese climbing expedition, also the first successful scaling of this Himalayan peak. The expedition was acknowledged as a great achievement and boosted the morale of the Japanese people, who had been mentally and economically depressed since World War II. 2006 is also the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Nepal and Japan.

We firmly believe that the Himalaya Film Festival Tokyo 2006 project will help foster people’s understanding about the Himalayan region, the human-nature relationship and environmental issues. Year 2006 will be a “Himalaya-first year” in Japan.

The structure of the festival is as follows:

Official Name: Himalaya Film Festival Tokyo 2006
