NDO – A film project market introducing prominent independent film projects in the process of script development and production by film makers from Asia began this morning in Hanoi.

The two-day event, part of the third Hanoi International Film Festival (HANIFF), is held by the Vietnam Cinema Department in co-ordination with BHD Media Company.

The film project market offers a good opportunity for young film makers to develop their film making projects and enhance their professional skills. The market also helps them to work with and create long-term working relationships with film producers, distributors and international investors.

Attending the market, the independent film makers expressed their hope that they would be able to access formal financial resources and funds supporting new projects.

Nearly 100 independent film projects were sent to the event. The organising board announced five of the most outstanding projects including ’30 days of ginger’ by Chinese director Eng Tiong Teo, ‘A share of paradise’ by Vietnamese director Siu Pham and producer Vu Hoang Diep , ‘Honeygiver among the dogs’ by Dechen Roder from Bhutan, ‘A wrong season’ by Carlo Francisco Manatad from Philippine and ‘We ain’t nice always’ by Vietnamese director Phan Nhat Linh.

Director of the Vietnam Cinema Department Ngo Phuong Lan expressed her hope that the film project market would be organised at the next International Film Festivals, which will contribute significantly to the development of Vietnamese cinema.

The 2014 Hanoi International Film Festival opened on November 23 and runs through November 27.
