The European-Vietnamese Documentary Film Festival 2017 will present films from 10 European countries including Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Israel, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and Wallonia-Brussels (Belgium). Held in collaboration with National Documentary and Scientific Film Studio and Hoa Sen University, the festival showcases the best contemporary documentary movies covering a diverse range of themes.
This is the eighth European-Vietnamese Documentary Film Festival, and the fourth time the festival will be held in Ho Chi Minh City. It is one of a series of cultural festivals organised each year by EUNIC – European Union National Institutes for Culture – to promote better understanding between the people of Vietnam and Europe.
Each night between 09 to 18 June in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, audiences will have the opportunity to enjoy one Vietnamese documentary film followed by one European film. Some Vietnamese movies in the festival have been produced by the National Documentary and Scientific Film Studio and have gained many prestigious prizes, while others are professional works by Vietnamese television channels. Many of the European films have also won critical acclaim, and include winners of the Oscars, and the César and Berlin festivals.
Eleven documentary films made by independent filmmakers will also be featured in a separate session of the 8th European-Vietnamese Documentary Film Festival.
The 8th European-Vietnamese Documentary Film Festival offers a thrilling platform for local audiences to explore countries and cultures of Vietnam and around the world.
