Speaking at the press conference introducing the film festival on November 5, Deputy Ambassador of Israel to Vietnam Shirel Levi said that the festival’s movies are carefully selected so as to give Vietnamese audiences a closer insight into Israel’s contemporary culture, life and society.

The films mainly focus on spreading humanity, family love, the desire to live, as well as efforts to find love in spite of differences.

In particular, the film festival will reserve a separate screening for children from SOS Children’s Village in Hanoi as a gift.

The movie perception-sharing contest will also be organized with attractive prizes from Israel Embassy in Vietnam and BHD Star Cineplex.
