Originally chosen from 29 script entries, the four films “Disordered”, “Banana seller’s love story”, “Amok” and “Xe om” which received financial support from the project address bad driving habits and behaviors of Vietnamese and other related traffic problems.
Founded by award-winning actress and producer Hong Anh, the 89,600km+ project aims to support young aspiring filmmakers to pursue their career and spread awareness of the chaotic traffic scene in Vietnam.
Expected to reach more than 5,000 students at these institutions, these films will also be shown at a number of US colleges next year.
While “Disorders” will be signed up for a short film festival in Australia, “Xe om” will compete at Japan’s NHK Documentary Festival, Anh said.
The 89,600km+ project will be held again next January, which is expected to provide at least VND100 million (US$ 4,780) worth of production budget for each of the five winning script entries.
The film screening will run until November 15.
