Luang Prabang Film Festival 2022
The Luang Prabang Film Festival (LPFF) will be held from 8 to 11 December 2022 in Luang Prabang, Lao PDR, with films from across Southeast Asia.
The curators handpick these films from ten ASEAN-member countries (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam), and showcases them in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Luang Prabang, Lao PDR.
This year, audiences can expect more than 20 feature films from across Southeast Asia, public discussions and Q&A sessions with visiting filmmakers, and the easygoing, cinephilic atmosphere for which LPFF is known.
More than 1,000 viewers routinely fill its main night venue, which showcases primarily Lao and Thai content. This year, LPFF will add a second, smaller night venue in order to offer a few more selections from around the rest of the region.
From 2016 to 2019, LPFF also hosted a regional Talent Lab for developing concepts for feature films, in cooperation with the Tribeca Film Institute (TFI). Although this is not yet up-and-running, there are plans to deliver the Labs again in 2023.
