The movie “Hanh phuc của Me” (The Happiness of a Mother), which won the Vietnam Cinematic Association’s Golden Kite Award 2019, was chosen to be screened on the opening day.

Nine films from nine ASEAN member countries will be introduced to audiences for free in Hanoi, Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City during the week from July 18-26.

The event will contribute to enhancing cultural connection among ASEAN countries, towards building a community of peace, stability, cohesion and prosperity.

Through the film week, Vietnam expects to implement its political goals and improve its position as well as promote the image of its land, people and cultural traditions of the country to international friends.
