The event features eight German films subtitled in both Vietnamese and English with 13 screenings at 8pm on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday evenings at the Ha Noi National Cinema Center.

Organizers said that each of the films have been carefully selected by the Goethe Institute and German experts in the hope that they will help audiences gain greater insights into excellent films of different genres.

In addition, they will also provide viewers with updates on the prevailing trends of German cinema as well as learning about German culture, life, and politics.

Among eight movies, “System Crasher”, directed by Nora Fingscheidt, won the Silver Bear award at the Berlin Film Festival 2019 along with 30 other international prizes.  

The German Film Festival regularly tours through major Vietnamese cities. This year, as a result of measures implemented due to COVID-19, the dates for screening films in Da Nang, Hoi An, and Ho Chi Minh City have yet to be fixed, meaning Ha Noi will host the year’s first German Film Festival.

The German Film Festival Viet Nam has become a must-see in the culture calendar for many Ha Noi cinephiles.

The even runs until October 10./.
