Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas’ eastern edge is at the top of the happiness index considered by the United Nations. It is known for its monasteries, fortresses (or dzongs) and dramatic landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. In the High Himalayas, peaks such as Jomolhari are popular trekking destinations. Paro Taktsang monastery (also known as Tiger’s Nest) clings to cliffs above the forested Paro Valley.

The picturesque undulating grassland, bordered with the Tibetan plateau this incredible kingdom itself has been a cinema. Today’s urban life has separated us from nature. But sometimes we all need to go back to nature to feel the essence of life. So to get the touch of the murmuring glacial river of Paro chu, the hereditary enriched Bhutanese culture, we are going to organize cinema, our film festival in the paradise town of Paro, in the lap of unlimited nature at our venue.

The sole purpose of DIFF is to celebrate the joy of creation in the lap of nature. DIFF showcases an outstanding presentation of independent filmmaking, while also building a strong sense of community around the art of visual storytelling.

DIFF honours films from around the world with a vast array of awards in different categories and genres. Our mission is to discover diverse new voices & to promote artists’ work through numerous platforms.
