The cultural event aims to introduce the diverse beauty in culture and customs of the ASEAN community to Hong Kong audiences through stories in the film, and help them further understand Southeast Asian culture, thus promoting cultural exchanges and deepening cultural and economic ties between the two sides.

A total of 14 works from eight ASEAN countries, Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia, Brunei, and Singapore, are screened at M Cinema, The Sky and The Miller Theater (Asia Society Hong Kong).

Vietnamese Consul General in Hong Kong Pham Binh Dam said that the participation of Vietnamese films in the festival is an effort to implement cultural diplomacy and promote the country and people of Vietnam. The films will inspire people to visit Vietnam for tourism or business.
