Gyaljong Tsetrin founded Filming for Tibet in 2008, in order to realize his cousin Dhondup Wangchen’s dream of bringing unheard Tibetan voices to the world stage, during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. Filming for Tibet is incorporated as a non-profit organization in Switzerland. Its mission is to support the work of Tibetan filmmakers and the people of Tibet. Leaving Fear Behind is its first production.
Filming for Tibet is supported and closely working together with the Tibetan Youth Association in Europe (TYAE).
