Movie enthusiasts in Hanoi are in for a treat as five award-winning films from across Africa will be showcased at the National Documentary and Scientific Film Studio. The films, originating from Morocco, Burkina Faso, Senegal, and Rwanda, will offer viewers a glimpse into the captivating landscapes and cultures of the continent. All screenings will be presented with subtitles in Vietnamese, English, and French, ensuring accessibility to a diverse audience.

This unique event is the collaborative effort of the Embassies of Morocco in Vietnam, the International Organisation of La Francophonie (OIF)’s Asia-Pacific Office, the Wallonie-Bruxelles delegation, and the French Institute in Vietnam. It marks the third iteration of the festival, with the first having been held in 2022, offering a biennial celebration of African cinema in the city.

FESPACO, launched in 1969 and now one of the most prominent African film festivals, serves as a testament to the rich storytelling traditions of the continent. The festival takes place in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, and has become a cornerstone event for filmmakers and enthusiasts alike.
