At the headquarters on 465 Hoàng Hoa Thám Street, Hà Nội’s Ba Đình District, six films will be screened for the public free of charge, including Điện Biên Phủ (1964), Hồi Ức Điện Biên (Memories of Điện Biên) (1994), Chuyện Những Người Lính Già (Stories of Old Soldiers) (2017), and Chia Lửa Cùng Điện Biên (Sharing fire with Điện Biên) (2024).

According to a DSF representative, these films were made by the studio's artists against the backdrop of the most intense years in the anti-French colonial war and the subsequent process of national building and development up to the present day.

After seven decades of construction and development, Điện Biên Phủ has emerged as a beacon in the northwestern region, serving as an economic, cultural, and tourist hub. The lives of local people have significantly improved, enjoying prosperity and happiness in peace.

The programme aims to bridge the audience with the nation's history, so that the young generations are always grateful for, pay tribute to, and take pride in the country’s historic achievements and current position.
