The movie will compete in the category, World Fantastic Blue which serves as a general introduction to films from accessible genres like drama, comedy and romance for the NETPAC (Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema) Award.

Co Gai Den Tu Hom Qua (The Girl from Yesterday) is about schools, boys and girls, and their stories of love and compassion.

It is based on the novel of the same name by Nguyen Nhat Anh, a best-selling author in HCM City.

Nguyen Nhat Anh is a favourite author of children, teenagers and adults. His well-known novels recently published include Toi la Beto (I am Beto); Cho Toi Xin Mot Ve Di Tuoi Tho (Give me a ticket to childhood); Dao Mong Mo (Dream Island); and Toi Thay Hoa Vang Tren Co Xanh (I see yellow flowers on green grass). Anh was granted the Southeast Asian Writer Award last year for the book Cho Toi Xin Mot Ve Di Tuoi Tho (Give me a ticket to childhood).

Launched in 1997, the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival is an international film festival held annually in July in Bucheon, South Korea. The festival focuses on South Korean and international horror, thriller, mystery and fantasy films, with particular attention to Asian cinema from East Asia and Southeast Asia.
