The Free Spirit Film Festival was the first and the original annual film festival in McLeod Ganj. It was launched by Lobsang Wangyal Productions in 2004 as the “Tibetan Film Festival” and was renamed “Free Spirit Film Festival” in 2008. It also has another name: “McLeod Ganj International Film Festival”.
This film festival is independent of any restrictions and has no affiliation to any government or organisation. The Festival is aimed at sharing beautiful stories, concerns, interests, and creativity. The Festival particularly promotes independent filmmakers.
Manifesting true “free spirit”, the Festival has no boundaries, and screens films in all genres from all over the world.
