The festival is being organised by the EU Delegation to Vietnam with the support of the European Public Outreach Program (EUPOP) and the participation of EU Member State embassies and European Cultural Centers in Vietnam.

This year’s festival marks the 20th anniversary of its presence in Vietnam. It is also one of the activities celebrating the 30th anniversary of EU-Vietnam diplomatic relations.

Apart from the traditional locations of Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh city and Hue, this year, for the first time, the festival is being brought to the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho.

Taking place at a time when the world has seen many complicated developments due to COVID-19, the 13 films will convey a message that even though there are failures, loneliness and loss, we need to continue to strive with love and hope towards a brighter future.

With several national and international award -winning films targeting different audiences from children and the youth to adults, the festival is expected to offer Vietnamese movie lovers an interesting and entertaining experience.
