I just learned that there have been 11 screenings and Director Q&A’s that have been scheduled so far for the Australian ‘Dalai Lama Renaissance’ film tour, from Nov 26 through Dec 23.
We expect additional dates to be scheduled soon, and I will add more details as I have them.
I am pleased that the film, which is narrated by Harrison Ford and of course features the Dalai Lama, will be soon shared with Australian audiences.
I will try to get some rest while I am in Australia, but… attending each screening, and speaking with audiences afterwards about their personal experience of the transformation illustrated in the film, is more important than laying in the sun on an Australian beach
Although I will try to find a couple of days, and time within each day, to explore Sydney, Melbourne and Sydney a bit.
Here are the dates of the Australian Tour so far:
11/26/2010 Blue Mountains, NSW
11/27/2010 Manly Cinema Manly, Sydney

NEW YORK, NY — ‘Dalai Lama Renaissance,’ the feature documentary about the Dalai Lama narrated by Harrison Ford, premieres theatrically in New York City at the prestigious Rubin Museum of Art on February 21, 2009.
‘Dalai Lama Renaissance’ tells the story of 40 Western innovative thinkers who travel to India to meet with the Dalai Lama to solve the problem of world peace. What happened was surprising and unexpected, and was captured by a five-camera, 18-person crew.
The film features two of the starring quantum physicists from the hit theatrical documentary ‘What the Bleep Do We Know,’ Fred Alan Wolf and Amit Goswami. Also appearing in ‘Dalai Lama Renaissance’ are Michael Beckwith (who appears in ‘The Secret’ with Wolf), Air America radio host Thom Hartmann, and other prominent figures.
Screening dates and times for ‘Dalai Lama Renaissance’ at the Rubin Museum of Art are:
* Sat., Feb. 21, at 4 and 6 p.m.
* Sun., Feb. 22, at 4 and 6 p.m.
* Sat., Feb. 28, at 4 and 6 p.m.
* Sun., March 1, at 4 p.m.
Producer-Director Khashyar Darvich will attend the screenings on Feb. 21 and 22 to discuss the film with audiences.
This is the first film about the Dalai Lama and Tibet to open theatrically in the United States since the international spotlight placed on China for its firm handling of Tibetan protesters speaking out against Chinese policies in Tibet.
“I narrated ‘Dalai Lama Renaissance,’” says Harrison Ford, “because I believe His Holiness is making a positive influence in our world. For me, the film represented an opportunity to continue assisting the optimistic efforts of an extraordinary individual.”
John Griffin of the Montreal Gazette calls ‘Dalai Lama Renaissance’ “a provocative, even enlightening film… fascinating, ravishingly beautiful and sonically soothing.” Film Threat Magazine’s Rick Kisonak said ‘Dalai Lama Renaissance’ is a “comedy sensation,” adding, “I can’t remember the last time a movie made me laugh so hard.”
‘Dalai Lama Renaissance’ is among the top-grossing theatrical documentaries of 2008-2009. This important film on human rights and world peace has screened in more than 80 cities around the U.S. and is the official selection of 40 film festivals around the world where it earned 12 awards. The film has attracted record audiences at film festivals and theaters around the U.S. and around the world. The film’s official webite is www.DalaiLamaFilm.com.
Media interviews are available.

There is a new documentary about Amit Goswami that is very close to being released entitled “The Quantum Activist.”
It looks like a very interesting film that takes an in-depth look in the Amit’s work as a Quantum Physicist, as he bridges the gap between quantum physics and spirituality.
The official website for ”The Quantum Activist” Documentary film is here: http://quantumactivist.com/
And Amit Goswami’s Official Website: http://www.amitgoswami.org/
Here is the trailer for “The Quantum Activist”:
“The Quantum Activist” looks very interesting and worth watching.
