25july20111Dharamshala:  'Passport Photos,' a Tibetan documentary film, received official selection in eight international film festivals.  The 15-minute film is comprised of conversations with young, urban Tibetans who all share the name "Tenzin."  These Tibetans discuss their lives and dreams as exiles who have lived their entire lives as refugees.

The name "Tenzin" is significant, because, as the film explains, a generation of Tibetans have been given the name "Tenzin" by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

The film, produced by Black Coffee Productions and Think Tibet Productions, was first shown at the IBN Arabi Film Festival in Murcia, Spain in January 2011.  Receiving positive reviews, the film was subsequently screened at seven other 2011 international film festivals in Laos, Canada, the Netherlands, Lebanon, Itlay, and Australia.

The film was directed by Preetam Koilpillai and produced by Venkatesh Narayanaswamy.  The Associate Producers were Jangchup Lingpa, Lobsang Thardoe, and Aravinda Anantharaman, and the camera, editing, and music were by Preetam Koilpillai.
