The 28th Vietnam Film Festival will take place in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue from November 18-20, spotlighting not only cinematography but also heritage and “ao dai” (traditional dress) of Vietnam.

The festival will feature 128 films from 42 units, including 26 feature films, 56 documentaries, 15 scientific films, and 31 animated films. A number of side line events will be organised both in virtual and in-person forms.

This year’s event will present two new awards, one for a feature film with the best cinematography, and the other for outstanding debut by a director.

It has been 22 years that the Vietnam Film Festival returns to Hue city, after the 1999 edition. To date, all preparations have been completed.

Within the framework of the festival, together with programmes offering experience of Thua Thien-Hue’s green and safe tourism products, a gala show themed “Ao dai – Cinematography” will be organised.

Hue, which was the imperial capital of Vietnam for over 100 years, is home to five heritages recognised by UNESCO, which are the Hue ancient citadel relic complex – a World Cultural Heritage site; Nha Nhac (Hue royal court music)- an intangible cultural heritage item; Nguyen Dynasty’s wood blocks – a documentary heritage item; Nguyen Dynasty’s Chau ban (royal administrative documents) – part of the Asia-Pacific Register of UNESCO’s Memory of the World Programme; and literature on Hue royal architecture - a documentary heritage.
