Giant agency Endeavor Content has been in touch with the film’s producers to buy the rights for showing in Indonesia, the Philippines, Myanmar, Australia, and New Zealand.

Nelson Mok, its Singapore-based director of financing and sales, said: "While international audiences are relatively unfamiliar with Vietnamese cinema, our buyers are impressed with Kiet’s style of visual storytelling and high production quality.""We feel highly encouraged by the market response to the film so far, which was sold just based on the director’s sizzle reel and later a promo reel."

"Bong De" is about a father and two daughters living in a centuries-old ancestral house after suffering from a family tragedy. Later many family secrets start to emerge and change their lives.

It is set to release in Vietnam on May 14.
