Buddhism in Film—A Conversation with International Buddhist Film Festival Executive Director Gaetano Kazuo Maida
From Pacific Sun by Jena Vick
The value of spiritual practice as a method of self-preservation becomes more evident than ever with each passing day in the era we live in. And, wild though the path may be, I am grateful that we’ve come far enough along this last series of unexpected changes to reach in-person viewing once again and that our ongoing quest for balance can find an iteration at the Smith Rafael Theater this weekend, for the 22nd year of the Buddhist International Film Festival.
The International Buddhist Film Festival takes place Thur–Sun, Dec. 9–12, at the Smith Rafael Film Center, 1118 Fourth St., San Rafael. Find more information on the festival at buddhistfilmfoundation.org; and get tickets to the screenings at rafaelfilm.cafilm.org.
