Special arts camp to look for best movie scripts


Writers and amateurs will participate in a national script composition camp launched by the Ministry of Culture and Information’s Cinematography Department on Wednesday.

This is the first time the script composition camp is being held for all movie categories including feature, documentary, science and animated movies.

The camp expects to serve as a script resource for Vietnamese movie makers. Any scripts chosen will be backed by investments in order to complete their works, said Le Ngoc Minh, deputy head of the department.

Cash prizes ranging from VND1.5 million (about US$100) to VND4.5 million will be offered to best scripts.

The organisation board will accept all themes, but will favour scripts which focus on contemporary life, children and mountainous ethnic minorities, Minh said.

Minh also reminded writers about copyright rules in case their films are adapted from literature.

The top films will be made by State-owned film studios such as the Viet Nam Film Studio, Film Studio I, the Giai Phong Film Studio, the Central Documentary Science Film Studio and the Viet Nam Animated Studio.

The camp will open on August 4. — VNS
