The online film festival website www.yxineff.com will screen its first cartoon and official 3D trailer for the first time tonight.

The "Journey Unknown", written and directed by Do Dang Thuong, features an unnamed person traveling through nature, urbanization, demonstrations and ruins.

The 4 minute 40 seconds cartoon, made in 2009, will be screened at 9 p.m.

It was Thuong's first work after the 23-year-old graduated from Lasalle College of the Arts in Singapore. It was screened in the UK last year during Future Short, the world's largest short film festival.

The 3D trailer will show snippets from short films.

YxineFF was created by overseas Vietnamese Marcus Manh Cuong Vu and launched a month and a half ago with support from young Vietnamese movie lovers all over the world.

The website screens a short film every Friday night at 9 p.m., and the filmmakers will chat online with the audience an hour later.
