Opening the Awards Gala, Dr. Nguyen Cao Tri - Chairman of Van Lang University said: "From the perspective of Van Lang Education Group, we encourage the diversity of the educational ecosystem that Van Lang is shaping. With the core of education, Van Lang is creating an ecosystem that integrates health, services, sports, and even art projects, to provide a comprehensive experience for learners. Art certainly plays an important role in shaping the cultural identity of the Van Lang community. I want to send a message to the "student filmmakers": filmmaking, even if it's just a walk, it is also a difficult and expensive walk. I am impressed and happy to see that many young people are still students but have had the commitment and perseverance to make short films and animated films, documentaries, or creative viral clips. Today's award gala is both an event of the Film Festival, but also a gift from Van Lang University for you, after your efforts of filmmaking."
