Norwegian Tibet Committee Press Release

Oslo, January 17: A Tibetan documentary film, “The Sun Behind the Clouds: Tibet’s Struggle for Freedom”, by Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam has been selected for the 21st Tromsø International Film Festival (TIFF), to be held from January 18-23, and is also nominated for its Norwegian Film Peace Award.

TIFF is the biggest film festival held in Northern Norway. It is a popular film
festival, and at the same time an important meeting place for the Norwegian and
international film industries. Tromsø is the largest Norwegian town north of the
Arctic Circle, the gateway to the Arctic and boasts the world’s northernmost
university. The city enjoys midnight sun from May 18 to July 26.

TIFF 2011 will be the 21st edition of the event. The festival screens challenging and
quality films for local, national and international audiences.

Mr Tord Eriksen from the Tromsø chapter of the Norwegian Tibet Committee said,  “The directors of the film, Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam, have been invited for the
festival. The Norwegian Tibet Committee will use this opportunity to highlight the
issue of Tibet during the festival. Ms Chungdak Koren from our main office will be
coming to Tromsø to help facilitate this.”
