International sport, tourism movies &TV festival opens

The fifth Vietnam International FICTS Festival – Sport, Tourism Movies and TV opened in the central city of Danang on May 27. Franco B. Ascani, President of the Federation Internationale Cinema Television Sportifs (FICTS), was among guests to the festival.
More than 90 movies, including documentaries, feature films and cartoons from 32 domestic and foreign studios have competed in the four-day festival, which is an activity to mark the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi.

The festival is also a chance to promote the image of Vietnam and its tourism potentials as well as its people’s great love for sports, helping honour the Vietnamese cultural identities and preserve, restore and develop the country’s traditional sports and folk games.

During the festival, a photo exhibition on tourism and sports, a walk for health and the environment and an international seminar on Vietnam’s sport and tourism movies and television will also be held.

In addition, the organisers will launch a competition for screenplays of films on sports and tourism.

The International FICTS Festival was first held in Monaco in 1982 and then in Milan, Italy, for 28 times.

Since it joined the 103-member FICTS in 1999, Vietnam has participated in the festival for ten times.
