Mad Visions is an international film festival celebrating independent filmmakers from from all parts of the globe. The first of it's kind in the country, the main focus is to inspire and encourage young independent Vietnamese artists to keep creating and putting their work out into the world, by bringing awareness within the local arts community in order to grow enthusiasm for the art of film.

Our first official festival was held over a two day period, June 10 & 11, 2022, in HCMC, Vietnam. We're now looking forward to our next season.

Submissions for our 2023 selections are now open.

Along with our main festival each year, we will also hold various flash screenings throughout the country leading up to the main event each season.

We welcome the strange, the beautiful, and all in between.

Mad Visions focuses on film projects from International & Vietnamese artists ranging from full length features, short-films, dance films, music videos, and anything experimental. We strive to showcase new creativity & talent from around the world and within Vietnam.
