Hong Kong is willing to work as a bridge for Vietnamese film makers to reach the outside world, said members of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) at a seminar held yesterday in Hanoi.

The seminar, co-organised by the HKTDC and the Vietnam Cinema Association, drew the participation of around 40 Vietnamese film and television companies in the north.

At the seminar, participants had a chance to explore film and television industry trends in Hong Kong and learn about opportunities for Vietnamese film and television professionals to co-operate with Hong Kong.

The Hong Kong International Film and TV Market (FILMART) was also discussed.

Though FILMART was not unknown to Vietnamese film makers, this is the first time the HKTDC organised an official event to introduce them to FILMART.

Vietnamese movie makers have taken part in several FILMART projects as observers, mostly for the learning experience.

“Though the film and TV industry in Vietnam is rapidly growing and very promising, it needs more content and expertise,” said Tina Phan, director of the HKTDC in Vietnam.

“Hong Kong will be an ideal platform for Vietnamese movie makers to interact with global experts and technology,” said Tina.

FILMART is an annual international trade event that promotes Hong Kong as the regional hub for film distribution and production, television programming and entertainment-related products in the Asian-Pacific region.

Last March, FILMART welcomed 407 exhibitors from 28 countries and territories and over 3,700 visitors from across the globe.
