LIVING YOGA has been chosen to be screened at the 2009 Phangan Film Festival (PFF), to take place 20 – 22 February 2009. PFF will take place on Koh Phangan island and more info is available on their website: http://www.phanganfilmfestival.com
From the PFF website:
The Phangan Film Festival grew out of a pure love for meaningful independent filmmaking. Additionally, we are world travelers who rejoice in the cross-cultural expansion that subtly transforms all those who wander far and wide, and we embrace film as a medium for this soul-level evolution.
Following the auspicious premiere events earlier this year, the 2009 festival, to be held Friday February 20 to Sunday February 22, 2009, will mark PFF’s 2nd annual edition. We are committed to providing the local community as well as travelers to this beautiful tropical island with a diverse presentation of high-quality independent films from around the world. The festival themes are NATURE and SPIRIT, two widely cherished and intimately related subjects which bear increasing relevance for both our island and our planet at large.
We hope that this initiative will profoundly touch festival-goers, stimulate thoughtful reflection on our own ways of life, and bring about appropriate attitudinal change and responsible action. For the community, we wish to open the doors to spiritual activism and ultimately contribute to the harmonious development of Koh Phangan for all of its inhabitants and visitors.
PFF also supports the efforts of Green Phangan, a non-profit initiative that educates and advocates a low-impact, sustainable way of life on our island. Current projects include introducing bio-degradable corn starch straws and spreading the use of shopping bags made from cloth to fight the plastic plague.
As in 2008, PFF will take place at the spacious Holiday Beach Resort in the outskirts of Koh Phangan’s biggest town Thongsala. The resort is located 100 meters off the main road that connects Thongsala and Baan Tai. As you drive from Thongsala towards Baan Tai (and Haad Rin) watch out for a big Yamaha shop on your left hand side, the resort’s driveway is right opposite that landmark.
