The closing ceremony for the “Ten months, Ten documentaries” project was held in Hanoi on May 26.

The event was co-organised by the Centre for Assistance and Development of Movie Talents (TPD) in collaboration with the US Embassy in Vietnam.

The project, run from February 2014 to April 2015 and sponsored by the US Embassy, saw the production of ten films dealing with issues on gender equality, homosexuality and women’s and children’s rights.

The filmmakers involved in the project had the opportunity to attend short courses to equip them with knowledge about modern social matters, as well as skills needed to present a documentary film making project.

They also had a chance to learn from renowned local and foreign filmmakers, including the US filmmaker Mark Jonathan Harris, French sound expert Arnold Soulier, and Vietnamese directors Bui Thac Chuyen and Phan Huyen Thu.

At the ceremony, three documentaries were presented to public; “Why Binh is not married”, “The Opposite House”, and “Mother and Child”.-VNA
