  • CJ Group to Host Short Film Festival In Vietnam
  • by Pierce Conran /  Jul 25, 2018
  • 1st Edition to Be Held in November

    The CJ Group is set to host a short film festival in Vietnam in November for the first time. It will be the Korean conglomerate’s second overseas film festival, following a previous event held in China.

    The event, which will be known as the ‘Korean-Vietnamese Youth Short Film Production Support Project’, will be staged on November 16th by the CJ Group and the CJ Cultural Foundation with the support of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in Vietnam.

    It is the first time for CJ to support youth talent development outside of Korea and China. In China, they have been hosting the ‘Korean-Chinese Dream Building Short Film Festival’ since 2014, while at home in Korea, they have supported the Busan International Film Festival, Jeonju International Film Festival, and Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival as well as several other smaller events. 

    CJ decided to stage this event as they recognize the growth potential of the Vietnamese market. CJ subsidiary CJ CGV is currently the largest exhibitor in the Vietnamese market, following their acquisition of local theater chain Megastar in 2011. Meanwhile, CJ Entertainment is also one of the top distributors in the country, having produced and delivered many of the all-time top 10 films in the market.

    A representative from CJ CGV announced that the November event will feature the participation of several top Korean and Vietnamese directors as jury members, and the 10 selected finalists will receive help to be screened at other international film events.
