Running with the slogan “Building a Vietnamese film industry rich in national identity, modern and humane”, the event features a total of 127 movies, including several feature films, documentaries, science films, and cartoons.
All of the movies on show will be screened across four cinema theaters in the central city and through the digital platform of VTVGo.
In his address, Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Ta Quang Dong said that despite the Vietnamese film industry suffering the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the participation of 127 movies has demonstrated the great efforts of Vietnamese film makers to maintain production activities.
Along with honouring the country's film industry, the festival will serve as a bridge bringing new films to the public via digital platforms, Deputy Minister Dong said.
In addition, a number of sideline events will also be launched in both virtual and in-person forms.
The awards ceremony is set to be held at 8 p.m. on November 20 at the Song Huong Theatre and broadcast live on Vietnam National Television.
