Films chosen to compete in the festival were from Vietnam, Turkey, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Romania, Israel, Canada, Australia and the U.S.

Directed by Nguyen Do Khoa, the film tells of the fourth floor of certain college where a series of horrible things happen to anyone who enters this floor after a janitor was found mysteriously dead.

This is considered a great success for not only the student movie making team of Nguyen Do Khoa, Le Nhu Anh, Nguyen Uy Vu, Nguyen Hoang Duy and Truong Thang Khoa, but also for Vietnamese students

in general.

Through ISFFH, these five students acquired a precious experience including exchanges with other student filmmakers from many countries. The festival is the first step for Khoa, Anh, Vu, Duy and Khoa to develop their future careers.

There were 28 awards honored at the festival, among them the Grand Jury Award for David Jibladze from Chapman University, USA; Best Drama for Susan Cohen from American Film Institute, USA, Best Children’s Drama for Phillip Austin Wilson from San Diego State University, USA; Best Comedy for Nadia Hamzeh from Chapman University; Best Dark Comedy for Carles Torrens, Best Sci-Fi for Matthew Ladensack from Chapman University; and Best Documentary for Deborah Craig and Veronica Deliz from San Francisco State University, USA.

The annual festival offers student filmmakers from all over the world a unique opportunity to gain the recognition of film industry leaders, creating career development opportunities, according to the festival’s website.
