A mobile film projection scheme aiming to screen free short films to the public is officially launched on November 2 in Hanoi by the Vietnam Cinema Association's Centre for Assistance and Development of Movie Talents (TPD) and the Vietnam New Media Group.

During the "Cinevans" opening ceremony on November 2 at Platinum Cineplex in Tu Liem District's The Garden Shopping Mall, documentaries Nhoc Nhan Than (Life of Coalminers) by Le My Cuong and Chung Toi Da Cuoi (We Got Married) by Nguyen Ha Phuong and Mai Thi Bup, plus Nguyen Diep Thuy Anh's feature film Ngoai Kia Co Gi ? (What's Out There?) will be screened.

Under the auspices of the US Embassy in Hanoi , the Cinevans scheme will show audiences the skillfully shot products from participants of We Are Filmmakers, a project initiated by TPD.

According to TPD deputy head Bui Thac Chuyen, during its first phase the best short films from the past four years of the We Are Filmmakers project will be shown to senior secondary students in the capital city.

"We would like to create interesting extracurricular activities for the students, and through short movies made by their peers, we hope they will share their own stories as well as voice their perspectives on life," Chuyen said.

In addition, Cinevans organisers hope the film screenings will enable audiences to learn more about cinematography and heighten their own aestheticism.

Cinevans will be carried out over the 2013-14 period in varied phases, each of which will target a particular audience group. The first phase, running from September – December, will screen feature movies and documentaries on the topics of Family and Youth.-VNA
