The Vietnamese film market is booming. Since it was officially opened to the private sector in 2003, the market has experienced tremendous growth, reaching VND520-550billion in 2010, and is projected to grow at an annual rate of 30-50% in the next 5-10 years. With a strategic understanding of this macro context, Galaxy Studio is consistently among the leading players in all three segments of this market: exhibition (cinemas), production and distribution.
We have a unique record of investing in and creating premier assets. Galaxy Nguyen Du, our first cinema complex, was built in 2005 and broke even within 2 years, three times as quickly as the industry average. Similarly, our films are big-budget success stories. Our first feature film, Nhung co gai chan dai (Long-Legged Beauty), had a budget of 5-10x the industry average, and it then achieved huge commercial success, both domestically and internationally.
Film Exhibition (www.galaxycine.vn): Galaxy Studio currently owns three world-class cineplexes in downtown HCMC, with a total of 11 screens and almost 3,000 seats.
Film Distribution: Galaxy Studio enjoys distribution partnerships with Sony Pictures and other major studios, bringing the latest Hollywood blockbusters and award-winning films to the local audience.
Film Production: Undoubtedly a premier local film producer, Galaxy Studio has released 10 movies since 2004, two of which have broken local box office records. In 2011, with Bong Ma Hoc Duong, we became one of the first film production companies in the region to produce a 3D movie. Our network with the top creative talent helps enhance our production profile both locally and globally.
Galaxy Publishing operates in the fields of media, publishing, distribution, advertising, commercial services and event organization. Galaxy Publishing currently publishes two weekly magazines Nhip Cau Dau Tu (NCDT), the top business title in Viet Nam, and Mot & Cuoc Song (MCS), the most popular entertainment magazine for Vietnamese women.
Nhip Cau Dau Tu Magazine (www.nhipcaudautu.vn) targets business professionals in Vietnam, and has a circulation of 65,000 copies a week, 65% of which are distributed in Ho Chi Minh City, 30% in Hanoi City and the rest throughout the provinces and overseas.
In May 2008, Galaxy Publishing launched its second publication, Mot & Cuoc Song (www.motcuocsong.vn), an entertainment magazine for Vietnamese women. Since its launch, MCS has grown rapidly from a monthly magazine to a bi-weekly publication (May 2010) and is now the most popular weekly entertainment publication for Vietnamese women.
Galaxy Publishing currently employs 80 full-time staff in Ho Chi Minh City office and a further 15 in the Hanoi office. The company is expanding vigorously and one of its strengths is its young, dynamic and professional staff. We aim to develop a high-quality content for targeted readership, through continuous research and innovation aimed at producing the most reliable and informative publications on the market. Additionally, having a Harvard-qualified Board of Management keeps our publications one step ahead of our competitors in taking up new opportunities and expanding our business network.
Following the growth and success of the Film divisions, Galaxy Studio entered the TV production and distribution business in 2008, taking advantage of our existing strengths: creativity, financial stability, long-term relationships with foreign studios, national and international media agencies, as well as network with the most talented writers, directors, actors and technical staff in the entertainment industry.
After nearly 4 years of operations, Galaxy Studio has produced thousands of hours of TV series, variety entertainment and reality shows, attracting a wide audience. It has become a respected TV production house and a trusted partner. Our hit TV series Bi mat Eva, Loi thu nhan cua Eva, Ba noi khong an Pizza, mini-shows on Rubic 8 Entertainment and reality shows Sang Bung Suc Song, Du Ban O Dau are recent examples of our initial success.
