NDO – Christmas Film Week 2020, with a series of special films for children, has been introduced at the French Cultural Institute in Hanoi - L'Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street, Hoan Kiem District.

The film week runs from December 21 to December 27, with six classic films about one of the best children's holidays of the year. The films include “Yellowbird”, “Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion”, “A Reindeer’s Journey”, “Santa & Cie”, “The New Adventures of Aladdin”, and “The Brand New Adventures of Aladdin”.

Among the films, “Yellowbird”, a heartwarming tale of an orphaned bird leading a migration across the world, is a special cinematic work. The film is the first 3D animation to be produced entirely in France with a talented team from Europe. French animator and director Benjamin Renner, co-director of Oscar-nominated "Ernest & Celestine" (2012), created the character designs for the film. The music is the work of British composer Stephen Warbeck, who won an Oscar for his soundtrack to "Shakespeare in Love" (1998).

The remaining films have all been recently made, with funny content close to children bringing messages close to life. Along with the desire to bring the audience warm and happy moments with family and friends, the organizing board also hopes the audience will take the opportunity to understand more about French cinema, in addition to the familiar Christmas works of Hollywood.
