scenes of everyday life, cultural gems and colorful religious festivals.

The Himalaya Film Festival is an established
yearly cultural event throughout Europe. The
founder and organizer of the annual festival is Glenn Krishna Mitrasing, MD.

"Audience numbers continue to rise every year.
It's no small achievement that since the
festival’s inception in Amsterdam in 2003, the
event has traveled to Tokyo, and now to the
United States,” explains Mitrasing. “The program
will be divided into sessions of two or three
films, each of which focus on a common theme. The
films will be screened at the Quad Cinema in
Greenwich Village, at the cultural heart of
Manhattan. The Quad is the perfect venue for the
first American screenings, as its audience is
made up of passionate moviegoers eager to see the
best in independent, foreign and documentary films."

Come witness the people living on top of the
world and find out what inspires them.
