Organized by the Goethe Institut since 2005, the event supports film screenings in 23 countries across South Asia, the Middle East and Africa. This year’s theme, “Anthropocene: Welcome to the Age of Humans”, aims to help audiences explore the past, present, and future of humanity. In cooperation with local partners, the festival promotes science literacy and facilitates awareness of contemporary scientific, technological and environmental issues through films and television content with accompanying educational activities.

This year’s festival, run by Ha Noi Goethe-Institut in collaboration with THD Education Solution Company, is the seventh in which Viet Nam has participated. Last year, over 35,000 people attended 300 screenings across the country. The festival focuses particularly on films for children and adolescents.

A jury of three viewed the Festival’s 67 film offerings to select 19 suited to Vietnamese audience and the particular issues facing the country, said Hoang Duong, one of the jury members. Duong noted that this year’s theme is particularly important because of the growing threat human activities pose to climate stability.

"The main theme of this year’s festival is the anthropocene. The term refers to the fact that for thousands of years, humans have made their impact on nature, and have changed nature,” Duong said. “Today, we experience [the manifestation of] anthropocene through climate change. Our world with plants and animals is facing a crisis. The film programme reflects on these problems but also shows us the beauty and vulnerability of the ecosystems on our earth."

From October to December, the festival will come to schools and culture centres in Ha Noi and the northern provinces of Thai Nguyen and Vinh Phuc, the central cities of Hue and Da Nang, and HCM City and the provinces of Quang Nam and Ba Ria-Vung Tau in the south. 

In addition to watching films, audiences can participate in discovery workshops, games and experiments. Organisers hope that films and experiments will encourage young peoples’ curiosity and expand their knowledge.

The festival includes nine films for kids under 12 years old with Vietnamese voice-over and six films for ages 12 to 16 with Vietnamese subtitles. Four feature-length films will be shown on October 11, 18, 25 and November 1 at the Goethe Institut in Ha Noi and HCM City only.
