The first ever Bhutan Film Festival was concluded in Sikkim, India where it showcased six Bhutanese movies that were screened as a part of the commemoration of 50 years of diplomatic relations between India and the Himalayan kingdom.
The first Bhutan Film Festival was a two-day event, jointly organised by Bhutan's Department of Information and Media (DoIM) and the Film Association of Bhutan, concluded on Sunday at the Manan Kendra Auditorium.
The Bhutanese delegates included the country's Consul General in Kolkata Thinley Wangchuk and the DoIM Director Rinchen Dorji.
