CJ HK Entertainment Co. Ltd is the publisher of “Nhà bà nữ” (The House of No Man) which grossed VND421.2 billion after 23 days in cinemas this year, thereby becoming the highest-grossing Vietnamese film of all time.

The Marché du Film de Cannes is one of the largest film markets in the world. First established back in 1959, the occasion is held annually in conjunction with the Cannes Film Festival.

The main purpose of the market is to bring together various players from the audiovisual industry in order to make connections and discuss business opportunities, such as collaborations, co-productions, financing, and distribution.

Over 12,500 film industry professionals head to Cannes annually to present and discover almost 4,000 films and projects in development at 33 screening venues.

Fast track to Cannes Market is a programme launched by the French Embassy in Vietnam which sends Vietnamese representatives to attend Marché du film de Cannes during the Cannes Film Festival. The event aims to support Vietnamese cinema as it connects with the world./.
