Many short films on TikTok with a big number of views have been submitted to the contest. For instance, "The Gioi Song Song" (Paralell World) by Reency Ngo garnered three million views and more than 250,000 interactions for the story on school violence with a touch of fiction.

Another highly rated short film is "Tai Sao Nguoi Sai Luon La Con" (Why Am I Always Wrong) by Linh Barbie which addressed discrimination among family members, with 1.3 million views on TikTok. Other notable videos included Me Ke Cua Toi (My Step Mother) by Gia Long and Chuyen Di Cua Ba (Dad’s Trip) by GOTAStudio.
