Those long frustrated by having to wait to watch films scheduled to screen elsewhere have rejoiced at the advent of progressive film festivals, like Tribeca, Slamdance, and SXSW, that have embraced exhibition models that include online streaming and Video On Demand in conjunction with the live festival events.

While Buddha himself once said, "“The greatest prayer is patience,” the Tricycle BuddhaFest has taken the forward thinking step of offering a six feature line-up online.

"Tricycle is pleased to host a one-of-a-kind special event: The first-ever global, online Buddhist film festival, starting Monday, June 6th and continuing through Monday, July 4th. During this month, we will show six full-length feature films, accessible exclusively to Tricycle Community Members right here on the Tricycle website. The festival will also include related teachings and guided meditations by Tara Brach, Sharon Salzberg, Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara, and other teachers, plus interviews with several of the filmmakers.

This first-ever, global online Buddhist film festival is being presented in partnership with BuddhaFest, a festival of Buddhist films, talks and meditation that will take place in Rosslyn, Virginia, just across the Potomac from Washington, DC, June 16th to 19th. Read more about BuddhaFest here.

But you don’t have to travel to Washington DC to experience all these wonderful films. All you need is an Online Festival Pass, available to all Tricycle Community Members for only $20.

Don’t wait. The Online Festival starts on June 6, and some of the feature films will be accessible for only a limited run during the Festival month of June."
