Ten films to be screened during the week include four feature movies, four documentaries and two animated films which feature President Ho Chi Minh, the country, people and culture of Vietnam.

A national science conference will also be held on February 27 to mark the anniversary of the culture platform. The event will take place in person in Hanoi and online in 63 other locations across the country.

The conference agenda specified two key contents: "Theory and practical significance of the Outline of Vietnamese Culture" and "Vietnamese culture and people - The ideological basis and driving force of the country's growth in the new period."

In 1943, by applying Marxism and the guidelines of the Party and leader Nguyen Ai Quoc, Party General Secretary Truong Chinh wrote the Outline on Vietnamese Culture (also known as the 1943 Outline on Culture), stressing that the content, nature, organization and development orientation of a cultural revolution can only be associated with the national liberation revolution and a cultural revolution can be realized when the political revolution has succeeded.

The document defined that Vietnamese culture, consisting of ideology, learning, and arts, “will be liberated by the democratic revolution and freed from shackles to catch up with the world's neo-democratic culture.”
