The Viet Film Fest 2018 featured 30 entries, including 17 short films, by filmmakers living in the US, Europe, Canada, Malaysia and Vietnam.

Seminars and forums on Vietnamese films were included during the event that attracted 3,500 attendees.

Actress Wanted was also nominated in the Best Feature Film category.

The film is the second feature production by Vietnamese-American director Nguyen Duc Minh, a graduate in scriptwriting at the University of Southern California.

Minh’s first film, Touch, released in 2011, was about the love story of a Vietnamese-American manicurist and an American mechanic.

Touch won several top prizes at film festivals in the US, including Best Actress at the Boston International Film Festival 2011 and Best First Feature at the Santa Rosa International Film Festival in California in 2012.

Actress Wanted will open in cinemas in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang on November 23.
