Luang Prabang Film Festival

With cooperation from the Department of Cinema (a division of the Ministry of Information and Culture) of the Lao PDR, the annual Luang Prabang Film Festival (LPFF) presents films on a Southeast Asian theme to tourists and locals in December every year. The screenings take place in non-traditional venues (both indoor and outdoor) in the former royal capital of Laos, as Luang Prabang has no working cinemas. After the festival, a smaller selection of films tour other major provinces in Laos, with screenings and mini-festivals held over 2-night stops in each city. Between the yearly events, ongoing educational projects attempt to raise awareness about film in Laos, creating a long-term, sustainable project that seeks to support a burgeoning industry and art form.
