Since 2003, the Kite Awards is an annual award of the Vietnam Cinema Association to honor authors, artists, filmmakers, and outstanding works in the genres of cinema such as feature films, television series, documentaries, scientific films, cartoons, short films, cinema researches and film criticism. After 20 years of development, the Kite Awards has continuously expanded in scale and influence.

Marking the 20th anniversary of the award, the Wall of Fame located in Nha Trang City, Khanh Hoa province is a cultural project to recognize and honor excellent individuals and groups, who made many important contributions to the country’s 7th art discipline.

The Wall of Fame is 34m long, 2.5m high and is carved with a total of 433 stars. It includes information about 107 works, 297 individuals who are outstanding artists and filmmakers who won the Kite Awards and 29 veteran filmmakers have made important contributions to the country’s cinema.

This is the first project in Vietnam to recognize and honor outstanding individuals and groups who have contributed to the 7th art discipline.

Vietnam Cinema Association and Vega City Joint Stock Company officially set the Vietnam Record with the content: “Wall of Fame – The first project to honor outstanding authors, works, artists, and filmmakers won the Kite Awards in Vietnam”. On the evening of September 9, 2023, at Do Theater where the 2023 Kite Awards took place (in Vega City Nha Trang), the Vietnam Record Certificates were officially awarded to the two organizations.
