The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism issued a decision on April 8 to approve the organisation of the ASEAN Film Week in celebration of Vietnam's ASEAN Chairmanship this year.
The film week is scheduled to be held in Hanoi, Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City with the aim of promoting the fine values of people in the ASEAN Community.
Each ASEAN country will be invited to send a film to the event.
