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.

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.
