The event will see entries from 10 European countries, namely Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Israel, Spain, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, the UK, and the hosts Vietnam.

During the 10-day festival, audiences will be given the chance to watch documentaries showcasing both Vietnam and other participating countries, many of which have won international awards.
