PSNews - From November 13 to November 30, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City will host the Israel Film Festival 2020 which is expected to serve as a bridge for Vietnamese to get a closer insight into the people and culture of Israel, said Deputy Ambassador of Israel to Vietnam.

Recently, the Embassy of Israel in Vietnam announced that, within the Israeli film festival 2020, they will introduce Vietnamese audience six outstanding films of various genres, including art films, entertainment, drama, a children film and a short film.

The Festival’s movies were selected carefully with the aim to bring to the Vietnamese audience a true perspective on Israeli culture, life, and society. The films focus on humanism, reflecting family’s love, the desire to live and achieve, as well as efforts to find love despite considerable differences.

Three films including Shoelaces, The Farewell party, Apples from the desert and short film The Average Story all won Israeli Academy Awards or other international Jewish film festivals’ awards.

The Film Festival will especially reserve a screening for students of Hanoi SOS Village as a present to the children on the weekend holiday.
