The event aims to introduce the unique works of Vietnamese cinema to international audiences, and promote the modern Vietnamese film industry. It will also provide an ideal venue for both artists and filmmakers to explore co-operation opportunities with potential international partners.
In addition, international audiences will have the chance to learn about beautiful Vietnamese landscapes, particularly as the country represents a safe, friendly, and attractive destination for foreign investors.
The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism says the selection criteria for screening films are that each movie must showcase Vietnamese cinema’s unique and humane side, whilst they must also have been produced within the past five years.
The selected films are also required to have content in line with the general theme of World Expo 2020 Dubai, primarily focusing on sustainable solutions for global problems, seeking to boost cross-cultural co-operation, and devise innovative solutions among various countries and regions.
