From 22nd of March to 24th of March 2013, the Mini Doc Fest 2013 will present documentaries by young Southeast Asian filmmakers and artists.
At the opening night the internationally award-winning documentary Story of Kindness (1987) by Tran Van Thuy and a short film with footage of his grandfather edited by Tran Luong will take the audience on a journey into Vietnam’s past.
On the second day, the festival special program Voices from Myanmar, which was presented at the Chopshots Documentary Film Festival 2012, provides an insight into Myanmar. Different short films will show the beauty, but also the conflicts of our neighboring country.
The highlight of the Mini Doc Festival will be the latest productions of the last DocLab Basic workshop. Impulsive, honest, entertaining – the contributions of DocLab reflect the spirit of Vietnamese society today and are closely connected to the people.
The Mini Doc Festival will close with several documentaries by young independent Vietnamese filmmakers on Sunday.
Join us on the journey through Vietnam and Myanmar with different and multifaceted films. It is all about social taboos, complex family structures, identity problems of a young generation and a kitchen!
After last year’s Mini Doc Fest 2011 we are looking forward to welcome you again to an exciting weekend full of film screenings, debates and opportunities for exchange.
