HA NOI (VNS)– The 18th National Film Festival will open two days later than scheduled, due to the State funeral being held for General Vo Nguyen Giap on Friday. The General passed away last Friday, aged 103.

According to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the film festival will officially take place in the northern province of Quang Ninh's Ha Long City from October 15-16 instead of the previously planned October 11-15.

The ministry said the event would also be shortened, but some of the sidelined activities, including a Cinema with Quang Ninh exhibition, a workshop on film-making and distribution co-operation, and an exchange entitled Artists with Coalmine Workers will continue.

The film festival is expected to attract around 1,000 participants including international guests.--VNS
