The initiative, aimed at supporting cinema from the global south and east, is in the final year of a three-year cycle focused on Southeast Asia and Mongolia and encompassing independent filmmaking communities across the countries.

Linh won Locarno’s Pardi di Domani competition in 2020 for the short “A Trip to Heaven”.

Meanwhile, Nguyen Thi Xuan Trang will compete at the Open Door Lab event dedicated to film producers.

Various Vietnamese filmmakers have won awards and grants at the movie festival.

“Glorious Ashes” by producer Tran Thi Bich Ngoc and director Bui Thac Chuyen clinched a grant of France’s cinema centre the CNC.
