The 33 rd National Television Festival will be held in the northern province of Quang Ninh from December 18-21 with 527 works made by 104 production units competing.

The information was released at the December 16 press conference held by the festival’s organizers in Ha Long city, Quang Ninh.

Hosted by the Vietnam Television, the event aims to honour excellent, creative products, while offering an opportunity for production units to share information and experience to overcome challenges facing the sector.

Two international conferences will also be held within the festival’s framework, focusing on television copyright, the digitalisation of terrestrial television, and the production of programmes in languages of ethnic minority groups.

In the previous event in the central Nge An province, a TV serial entitled Dan Troi (Heaven’s Altar) won a Gold Prize. The 36-episode serial, directed by Bui Huy Thuan, was about the fight against corruption in a mountainous province.-VNA
