The information was released by the Director of the Vietnam National Documentary and Scientific Film Studio (DSF) at a press briefing on the festival on September 29, 2020.

The festival is held by the Vietnam National Documentary and Scientific Film Studio (DSF) and the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC).

It is normally organised every year in June, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced its postponement to October, said DSF Director Nguyen Quang Tuan.

Through these films, the audience will have the chance to learn more about the culture and people of Vietnam and European countries, and explore contemporary issues.

One of this year’s highlights is a 10-minute Czech animated documentary by a Vietnamese-Czech director. “The Little One” tells the experience of a Vietnamese girl named Rong who has spent her entire life in the Czech Republic living between two cultures.

Each screening will feature one Vietnamese and one international film. Documentaries made by independent producers will be shown on October 3. Admission is free.

The event will take place from October 1 to October 10, 2020 at DSF at 465 Hoang Hoa Tham Street, Hanoi, and at Hoa Sen University at 8 Nguyen Van Trang street, Ben Thanh Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City./.
