NDO – The third Mons International Romantic Film Festival (FIFA Mons) 2018 will take place from September 21 to 24, at the National Documentary and Scientific Film Studio (NDSFS), No.465 Hoang Hoa Tham Street, Hanoi, helping the Hanoi audience to access a part of European cinema.

The event has been co-organised by the Vietnam National Studio for Documentary and Scientific Films and the Wallonie–Bruxelles delegation to Vietnam, following the success of the two seasons of FIFA Mons held in Vietnam in 2016 and 2017.

The audiences will have an opportunity to enjoy five productions, including two tragedies, a comedy, an animation and a documentary, which have all won numerous prizes at top international film festivals.

Each film will be screened free in its original language with Vietnamese subtitles.

The FIFA Mons is one of the most reputable international film festivals with the aim of introducing films with the theme of love.

FIFA Mons was launched in 1984 in the Wallonie region, Belgium. The festival first took place in 1985 and is organised every two years. The festival presents films with the subject of “Love” in the broadest meaning of the word. FIFA Mons has since become a reputable film festival in Belgium, Europe and around the world.
