Started in 2009 by Dharma In Action Limited, the Thus Have I Seen Buddhist Film Festival (THISBFF) is the longest-running and only biennial Buddhist ﬁlm event in Singapore.
The Festival features documentaries and films from around the world that explore the immense cultural, social and spiritual diversity of Buddhism. THISBFF also provides a platform for film lovers to access and contemplate the Buddha’s timeless teachings of wisdom and compassion, through these specially curated films.
In line with the Buddhist spirit of inquiry, we hope to engage the audience through post-show dialogues with the filmmakers, to exchange thoughts and reflections arising from the films. THISBFF is run entirely by volunteers and sustained by the goodwill of donors and the Buddhist community. Please click here for ways that you can support us.
