Himalayan Film House

Himalayan Film House (HFH), founded by Stanzin Dorjai Gya, strives to be the voice of both the Ladahki and greater Himalayan community. HFH seeks to promote and capture stories unique to this region as people face increasing socio-economic conflict and environmental degradation. Of special importance are documentaries related to climate change, clean water, pollution, cultural identity, education, and religion. HFH also assists film crews from around the world, collaborates with NGOs and government agencies, and helps facilitate film festivals and other events.


Stanzin Dorjai Gya has collaborated closely with Christiane Mordelet, a French filmmaker, for many years.  Together they have co-directed  such internationally-acclaimed films as The Shepherdess and the Glaciers and Jungwa: The Broken Balance, and Behind the Mirror.
