HA NOI  (VNS) — A film and music festival will kick off on Sunday at the Thang Long Citadel Complex in Ha Noi with the aim of spreading awareness about wildlife trafficking, particularly the sale of rhino horns.

Films selected from the short film competition titled WildFest will be screened alongside films by invited directors Nguyen Quang Dung, Nguyen Hoang Diep and Bao Nguyen.

Launched earlier this year, the film competition's organiser received submissions from filmmakers in Viet Nam, South Africa, Thailand, Malaysia and Australia.

There will also be live performances by well-known artists.

WildFest is part of Operation Game Chance (OGC), an alliance between the US and Viet Nam, which aims to end wildlife trafficking by raising awareness among Vietnamese consumers. — VNS
