“Don’t Cry Butterflies” by female director Duong Dieu Linh and “Who Created Human Beings” by Le Binh Giang will be two among eight projects in the Open Doors Hub component. Both films were co-produced by Vietnam and Singapore.

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.

In 2019, Pham Ngoc Lan’s “Culi Never Cries” won the Arte International Prize and Sorfond Award offered by the Sorfond film fund.

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