Television festival kick-offs in Can Tho

CAN THO - The 30th National Television Festival kicks-off today in the southern province of Can Tho, showcasing the best television works produced by State-owned television stations and private studios.

The seven-day festival will offer more than 700 entries in 10 genres including trailers, that will be making their first appearance at the festival.

"It's good news that trailers will be shown at the festival for the first time. Trailers will make a big contribution to advertising television shows," said Ha Nam, deputy-head of the organisation board.

Judges, chaired by Deputy Head of the Cinematography Department Le Ngoc Minh, have already started reviewing the multiple episode category (10-30 episodes), that includes Viet Nam Television FiIm Centre's Silver Swamp, Viet Nam Multimedia Corporation's Perhaps Because of Love, and Tran Gia Studio's At the End of the Rainbow.

For the first time, individual prizes for television series will be presented, including Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Cameraman.

The organisation board will also present 35 Gold Awards, 48 Silver Awards and 120 certificates of merit.

Four workshops and two exhibitions will be included as part of the festival. The workshops will discuss how to improve television programmes on ethnic people, children and digital technology television.

Representatives from foreign television broadcasters such as Australia's ABC; China's CCTV; South Korea's KBS; Japan's NHK and the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) will attend the seminars.

"This festival will focus on workshops which will be of great help to local television stations. We aim to improve the quality of television programmes in the future," said Vu Van Hien, general director of Viet Nam Television.

The opening ceremony will be broadcast live on VTV1 at 8pm tonight.
