VGP - Movie lovers are looking forward to the Ha Noi International Film Festival (HANIFF) which will be taking place from October 27-31.
HANIFF is organized every two years by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism as well as the Viet Nam Cinema Department.
Themed "Cinema - Integration and Sustainable Development", the festival aims to honour outstanding cinematographic works with high artistic and humanistic values and creativity, while encouraging new movie talents.
It will feature both works for competition and those not for competition.
Films for competition are selected from many countries and territories around the world, which have never competed in international film festivals in Asia.
Meanwhile, screening of films not intended for competition will be held, introducing new features, documentaries and animated films of Vietnam, along with Iranian films which won awards in Cannes, Berlin and Oscar film festivals, as well as works from other countries.
The festival is expected to attract nearly 1,200 delegates, including 200 foreigners.
The HANIFF Campus will give young talents the opportunity to exchange with professional movie makers, widening their horizons and overthinking their current views.
