VTV.vn - The European Film Festival 2015 (EFF2015) will commence in three major cities of Vietnam – Hanoi, Danang and Ho Chi Minh City on 15 May, 16 May and 17 May 2015 respectively.

This annual cultural event is jointly organized by the Delegation of the European Union to Vietnam, the Embassies of EU Member States and the European Cultural Institutes, providing an in-depth portrait of Europe including its lifestyle, culture and tradition from East to West thus helping to enhance the mutual understanding among the people.

EFF2016 strives to reflect the excellence, innovation, and diversity of European cinema in Vietnam, through a collection of the drama, comedy, tragedy, and passion of the moving image. Over the span of two weeks, the 17th edition of the festival brings audiences a wide selection of entertaining, challenging and delightful films, never-before-seen in town. Films screened have encountered success in their country of origin. Some of the films have won highly acclaimed national and international awards.

“The silver screen world has no borders. No passports or visas are required to take you from one country to another. Cinema has successfully shared diverse culture, people, histories and perspectives to audiences from across the globe for over a century. As the birthplace of cinematography and home to a number of prestigious international film festivals, Europe is renowned for its cinema heritage. By maintaining the presentation of European silver screen world in Vietnam, the European Union hopes to break down language and cultural barriers aiming to involve people from across the spectrum of the Vietnamese society. This cultural event is believed to be an excellent bridge to bring the people closer.” said Head of the EU Delegation to Vietnam, Ambassador Bruno Angelet.
