The AAYFF moves to Vietnam!

We're tremendously excited to announce that after two incredible years in Singapore the Across Asia Youth Film Festival will be moving to Vietnam. Tanglin Trust School has played a pivotal role in establishing an event that has already done so much to promote student film and creativity, but now the time is right for the AAYFF to head out across Asia.

The third Across Asia Youth Film Festival #AAYFF2019 will be proudly hosted by the International School of Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC), a dynamic IB World school with a rich 24 years of history. ISHCMC have followed the AAYFF since it's inception with students submitting films to both editions of the festival. With an ethos that promotes creativity, collaboration and innovation we're looking forward to seeing how the AAYFF evolves within the school's community.

As well as acknowledging the Tanglin community, we also wish to wholeheartedly thank our wonderful partners HBO Asia, Disney and Mediacorp for supporting and nurturing the AAYFF in its early years. We're sad to leave Mediacorp behind in Singapore but ecstatic to announce that Disney and HBO Asia will continue to support the festival. We also look forward to embracing opportunities to involve the media and creative industry in Vietnam.

Important dates for next year's festival will be announced in the new academic year, so have a great Summer holiday and see you soon!

Best wishes,

The AAYFF Team
