The CJ Short Film Project organized by CJ Cultural Foundation and CGV Vietnam has concluded with the top five films which will be selected for international film festivals in the coming times.

21 projects have been selected for the presentation round of the Green Screen Film Festival organized by the Vietnam Film Development Association (VFDA). Participants told stories reflecting environmental issues in the form of a fictional film or documentary.

The “My Vietnam” short film competition has unveiled its nine winners selected from 200 submissions. Each project presented the landscapes, customs, habits and cultural traditions of the Vietnamese people.

Training providing the required skills to the film industry employee has received particular attention from film producers. In addition to film production courses at universities and colleges, many film courses have been organized to equip participants with the background and technical skills necessary for careers in entertainment.

Several short film production courses providing cinematic knowledge and skills to beginners have been held, such as a director and producer class by Charlie Nguyen and Aaron Toronto; a training program for Vietnamese filmmakers at Xine House, a film space founded by director Phan Gia Nhat Linh; and training program by director Vo Thanh Hoa.

In addition, the Film Talent Support and Development Center (TPD) of the Vietnam Film Association has offered many film courses.

The courses aim to provide basic knowledge to help young filmmakers develop short film projects, find a suitable production path and steer themselves into a film career.
