A group of well-known artists from Vietnam has just joined stars from around the world to attend the Cannes International Film Festival 2012, one of the world’s largest cinematography events, held from May 16 to 27.
“Turtle Soup” to be screened at Cannes film festival
The delegation includes actors Huy Khanh and Tran Luc, actresses Dinh Ngoc Diep, Kathy Uyen and Le Khanh, singer Tina Tinh and director Nguyen Quang Hai who have strutted onto the Cannes red carpet for the first time.
The artists attended the premiere of the Cannes nominee “Killing Me Softly” made by New Zealand director Andrew Dominik and famous star Brad Pitt.
Earlier, on May 15, local female film director Nguyen Hoang Diep arrived in Cannes for her movie “Dap Canh Giua Khong Trung” (Winging in the Sky) which has been listed in the Fabrique des Cinemas du Monde category of the festival.
Last year, Vietnamese actresses Hong Anh, My Duyen, Minh Thu, Minh Hang, Lan Ngoc, Thanh Hang, and filmmakers Nguyen Thanh Van, Tran Quang Dai, and Le Cung Bac were invited to attend the 64th Cannes film festival. The female artists sparkled at their moments when they appeared in Ao Dai, which attracted much attention at the event.
