Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnamese students whose films won high prizes at the 12th short-film making contest for Vietnamese students have been invited to attend another contest to be held in Japan in November.

“Trach nhiem ban than voi gia dinh” (Personal responsibility for family), a short film made by a group of students from Hanoi-based Birla orphanage, won the first prize at the 12th short-film making contest for Vietnamese students.
“Im Lang” (Silent) by pupils from Thang Long secondary school and “Thoi gian”  (Time) by students from Viet Duc high school in Hanoi got the second and third prizes, respectively.

The contest, designed for students of secondary and high schools, was initiated by Vietnam-Japan and Japan-Vietnam Special Ambassador Ryotaro Sugi.

By making a three-minutes film, students will pay more attention to society, environment and daily life, thus helping them become more emotional people, and better their understand about their lives.

In addition to these three films, the organisers also gave awards to the films with best contents, techniques, and art.

At the award ceremony in Hanoi on September 8, these films’ makers were invited to attend the film making contest for Asian children IN Kitami, which will be held in Kitami city of Japan’s Hokkaido prefecture on November 24.

Speaking at the event, Ryotaro Sugi expressed his hope that Vietnamese students will have better ideas to make more excellent works in the next contests.-VNA
