After over a decade of dedicated service, Krishna-lila Dasi is moving on from her position as managing editor of ISKCON News. An award-winnning professional filmmaker, she will continue to work with ISKCON News as a freelance contributor of short films, an exciting new development for the website.
A scholar, teacher, filmmaker, and activist, Krishna-lila holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Literary Studies from the University of Budapest, and a Certificate in Screenwriting from New York University. She is the author of three books, dozens of articles, and writer-producer of over thirty documentaries. As a spokesperson for ISKCON, she has led several international campaigns against religious discrimination. She has also helped to run humanitarian campaigns on behalf of the Hungarian Government and the Food For Life Global Foundation.
Her films related to environmental, humanitarian, human rights, religious and minority issues, interfaith dialogue, spirituality and culture have won several awards, and have been distributed in movie theaters and broadcast on international television channels. They include The Stolen River, about the fight to preserve and restore the holy river Yamuna; The Joy of Devotion, an ISKCON 50th Anniversary film celebrating inspiring devotees around the world; and a short film about the ISKCON 50 Academic Conference at Harvard, which brought an audience at the Mayapur international festival to tears.
