Vietnamese Language & Culture (VNLC) and VAALA present the 6th biennial Cinema Symposium. The symposium will feature ten panelists who lend diverse perspectives to the creative, technical, and commercial aspects of film-making. The possibilities for filmmakers to tell stories and for audiences to engage with cinema have greatly expanded due to ongoing ‘shifts’, such as the increasing fluidity of geographical and cultural boundaries, internet-based distribution and networking channels, and the accessibility of digital film-making technology. The event will provide a forum for audiences to engage with film-industry professionals in examining the unique opportunities and challenges that present themselves in this dynamic landscape.
