If you love the cinema but are feeling hungry for films that give your mind and spirit something more to chew on, this is for you! To celebrate the many inspiring films created internationally by Buddhists, for Buddhists and for the international audience, Buddhist Festival Month and Zen Open Circle present Reel to Real – The Sydney Buddhist Film Festival 2010.

The festival gives wide exposure to films with Buddhist themes, to give many more Australians the opportunity to explore some aspects of Buddhist insight and wisdom. If you are curious about what Buddhism may be able to show you about mindfulness, insight, compassion, liberation from the grip of suffering – check out the program to satisfy your curiosity.

You will discover a feast of fine documentaries and extraordinary shorts exploring a great range of different ways in which film can bring the Dharma to light and to life for an audience, in immediate, challenging, inspiring and practical ways.
