The Mekong Moments platform facilitated the 2018 Mekong Mini Movie Festival, a unique competition that celebrates the many faces and experiences of the GMS, promoting the region as a single tourist destination. Supported by all tourism ministries and the private sector in the GMS, the festival was targeted to attract amateur and professional moviemakers and create a large amount of content for the region. The festival campaign has brought in over 500 video submissions, which earned a collective viewership of over 7 million people globally.
