Ring in the New Year—and new decade—with Tricycle’s Buddhist Shorts Film Festival! This month, we’re featuring five short films documenting Buddhist diversity around the world. Grab some popcorn and curl up on the couch to follow a young Nepali monk forge an unlikely friendship during his country’s civil war, reflect on the challenges immigrants face with a Vietnamese girl growing up in the Czech Republic, join a San Francisco woman on her 24-year meditation retreat, and more.
Check out our slate of must-see Buddhist shorts below.
