Vietnamese secondary and high school students are being encouraged to take part in a film contest organised by the Japanese Embassy and the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union.

Contestants can submit films of three minutes in length with subtitles in Vietnamese or Japanese.

With the theme "When You Feel Happy", the contest will run until August 1. It aims to help students to learn to express their opinions, nurture their dreams and try to make them come true.

The top entries will be sent to the international film making contest for Asian children held in Japan in November.-VNA
