Events Held by the Embassy in 2019
Festival of Women in Film Making screening and workshop: 1 - 2 November
The Festival of Women in Film Making was a wonderful night celebrating Australian and Vietnamese women directors at the Embassy. Species extinction, adventure, youth-elderly relationships and MeToo were just some of the themes explored. The night closed with a Q&A with award-winning Australian short film maker, Shelly Lauman, which elicited lively conversation. The day before, Shelly ran a workshop on making short films at the Hanoi Academy of Theatre and Cinema.
The events were part of the Embassy’s Gender Month and Australia now ASEAN 2019 activities, with support from Flickerfest and Screen Australia.
