Sherubtse’s emerging film enthusiasts are organizing their first film awards with 10 films in competition. The final night is slated for 24 May 2014. In the run-up to the Awards Night, students will attend master classes with Dorji Wangchuk and Tshering Gyeltshen. The group is composed of 35 students-members who are inspired by the works of Bhutanese film makers like Tashi Gylethsen, Tshering Gyeltshen, Khyentse Rimpoche and Dorji Wangchuk. The Bhutan Film Trust supports the event with the prize money of Nu. 40,000.
With support from the Bhutan Film Trust, the group will formalise the Sherubtse Film Club during this very first edition of Sherubtse film awards. Students at other colleges in Bhutan will link to this club and will be encouraged to start making short films and adopt new approaches to filmmaking.
