Tashi & the Monk to be at Banff

Lobsang & Tashi

Tashi and the Monk, a short documentary film about life at Jhamtse Gatsal Children’s Community, has been selected to be screened at the Banff Mountain Film Festival.

Johnny Burke, one of the two creators of Tashi and the Monk, will be in attendance in Banff, Alberta this weekend for the screenings of the award-winning film along with Jeff Jenner, President of Jhamtse Canada.

Tashi and the Monk recently won the Pare Lorentz award for social and environmental film making excellence at the International Documentary Association (IDA). The IDA also short-listed Tashi and the Monk for the best short documentary at its upcoming awards gala in Los Angeles. The film also won two awards at the Telluride Mountain Film Festival in Colorado early this year and is currently on tour throughout the US.
