SCHLINGEL, a well-known German film festival for children and youth, has brought its international promotion event back to Vietnam, offering children, teenagers and movie lovers in four major cities exciting and emotional cinematic works.
The festival in Vietnam screens six selected films -- My Devil-Friend Lilith, Little Witch, Simple, Jim Button and Luke the Locomotive Driver, Matti and Sami and The Three Biggest Mistakes of The Universe, and Supa Modo, all in German language with Vietnamese and English subtitles.
The event is running in Ho Chi Minh City from June 19 to June 24, and in Hanoi from June 21 to 30, according to Goethe-Institut, a non-profit German cultural association operational worldwide with two institutes in Vietnam. In central Vietnam, the festival will stop in Hue from June 25 to 29, and Da Nang from June 26 to 30.
Activities and workshops to reflect on the German films and to inspire participants to express their views are also provided in addition to free film screening.
SCHLINGEL is an international film festival for children and young audiences, which has taken place annually in Chemnitz, Germany since 1996. This year’s festival, organized by the SCHLINGEL foundation in cooperation with the Saxon State Institute for Private Broadcasting and New Media, will take place in its home country from October 7 to 13.
To increase the young audiences’ interest in the German language and history, culture, traditions and life of young people, SCHLINGEL was first brought to Vietnam two years ago with an event organized in Hanoi from May 25 to 28, 2017.
