According to the Goethe Institute in Hanoi, the competition, jointly organised by the German Development Service (DED), InWent, Vietnam National Institute for Documentary and Scientific Films and Channel VTV6, aims to encourage and support younger generation of filmmakers to produce documentaries reflecting environmental problems and impacts of climate change on people’s daily life.

The topics will be sent to the competition website and be made available to members of the jury. 20 best topics will be selected for the second round and be developed into scripts for short films.

During the competition, applicants will have an opportunity to take part in workshops with a team of German directors to learn more about various stages of short documentary filmmaking and to develop their script and plan the production.

The 20 films, less than 15 minutes each, will be showed at the Goethe Institute in Hanoi, and submitted to the jury in May 2011.

10 films for the final will be screened at the “European Documentary Film Festival” in Hanoi in June 2011.

The award ceremony for three best films will take place during the “European Documentary Film Festival”. Spectators will be invited to vote for which film they find the most well-crafted and interesting.

Along with a US $1,000 reward, the first prize winner will receive an additional budget of US $3,500, at most, to produce a 25-30 minute documentary on the subject, which will be introduced at the Southeast Asia Science Film Festival SEADocs 2012.
