Thursday, June 04, 2015, 10:21 GMT+7

The 7th European-Vietnamese Documentary Film Festival is poised to run from next week in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

Audiences will be treated to free screenings of European and Vietnamese documentaries, which will be provided at the National Studio for Documentary and Scientific Film, at 465 Hoang Hoa Tham Street, Ba Dinh District, Hanoi, from June 10 to 19.

The free screenings will also be offered at Hoa Sen (Lotus) University, at 8 Nguyen Van Trang Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, from June 11 to 20.

During each evening, a Vietnamese film will be followed by a film from Denmark, Germany, France, Israel, Austria, Poland, Switzerland, Spain or Sweden.

Young filmmakers from such Southeast Asian countries as Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Thailand will also showcase their work at the event.

The films delve into topical themes in today’s society and provide a basis for discussion and exchange among viewers.

Two films from Israel and Denmark address the issue of gender.

Several of the Vietnamese entries to be shown at the festival have won awards at local film fests, and many capture slices of the war in Vietnam, which ended in April 1975, among other themes.

The 7th European-Vietnamese Documentary Film Festival is jointly organized by the European Union National Institutes for Culture, the embassies of the countries which have sent films to the event, and the National Studio for Documentary and Science Films.

Within the festival’s framework, two workshops will also be held in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, featuring German filmmaker Arne Birkenstock and Israeli filmmaker Shirley Berkovitz, respectively.
