Following the 8th INPUT Conference held in Helsinki in May 2014, the Goethe-Institut organised the 3rd MINI-INPUT from 25 to 27 September 2014 in Hanoi, Vietnam, hosted by Vietnam Television (VTV).

Opening of the MINI-INPUT by Dr Helmut Meyer-Zollitsch, Director of Goethe-Institut Hanoi

Goethe-Institut is an Associate Member of INPUT and initiated in 2012 the MINI-INPUT events around the world, in connection with the Annual INPUT Conferences. These MINI-INPUT give an opportunity to the Asian broadcasters to watch a selection of programmes screened at the main INPUT.

The aim of these MINI-INPUT is not to screen the best TV programmes but the most interesting programmes in order to develop discussions among the broadcasters. Thus 16 selected TV productions from 12 countries were screened during 7 sessions in Hanoi in front of more than 50 TV producers, commissioning editors and filmmakers coming from 14 countries (Australia, Cambodia, Germany, Laos, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam).

Many topics were covered as the role and importance of a strong opening for a TV documentary, how to make history TV programmes attractive or how the television can communicate with young people about sex issues or the dangers of the Internet. These screening sessions demonstrated how various and imaginative TV producers can be and allowed the participants to discover new TV programme concepts.

Each session was followed by fruitful debates and discussions that raised, among other matters, the difficulties that television organisations might face as programming sensitive content in a country due to cultural background or how to bring back the audience considering the importance of the development of the new media today.

This event ended with the announcement of the 9th edition of the INPUT Conference, which will be held on 11 – 14 May 2015 in Tokyo, Japan, hosted by the Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK).

AIBD Programme Manager, Ms. Geraldine Mouche represented the Institute in Hanoi.
