(Van Lang, June 23, 2020) – On the evening of 19/6/2020, Van Lang University successfully held the Opening Ceremony of Faculty of Art, Stage, and Movie at Hall N2T1, Campus 3. The event welcomed honored directors, screenwriters, Board of Directors, and more than 300 students. 

Van Lang’s strategic goal is to develop a multidisciplinary university. It has also been well-positioned in the ranking of applied sciences universities in Ho Chi Minh City and Vietnam. Therefore, Van Lang University has continuously expanded its discipline programs, which attach importance to humanities and pieces of art, generating a diverse cultural art space — thereby promoting the quality of VLU’s system.

The Council decided to establish the Faculty of Art, Stage and Movie and design the departments’ programs from 2020. The Opening Ceremony of the Faculty held on the evening of 19/6/2020 at Campus 3.

The representative of the Faculty is Journalist Duong Trong Dat and the other prestigious artists, lecturers, e.g., People’s Artist Dao Ba Son, Meritorious Artist Bich Ha (former Principal of the HCMC Academy of Theatre and Cinema), Meritorious Artist Minh Hanh, etc.

Van Lang University, up to this point, is the first university in the non-public sector to offer an intensive formal program in a film theater. It reaffirms the position in Vietnam’s higher education. Based on the tradition of intensive training in the field of Media and Arts for years, Van Lang believes that the Faculty of Arts, Stage, and Movie will contribute to the succession, build a solid background for Nation’s movie theater, and be a starting point for future artists. 

At the ceremony, Dr. Nguyen Cao Tri shared: “Van Lang has had over 20 faculties and institutes. The University will promote the Faculty and departments shortly to let the Faculty integrate into the “Van Lang ecosystem.” 

To commemorate the special event, the Faculty of Arts, Stage, and Movie, in collaboration with Hong Hac Theater, performed the first play “Eugenie Grandet.” The screenwriter Viet Linh adapted Eugenie Grandet from the novel of the same name. The work reflects a French social perspective in the early 19th century, exposing the greed and stinginess of the bourgeoisie at the time. Also, it sends the message of love and human dignity.
