Selections from the 2015 Mini-Vientianale

The Vientianale International Film Festival celebrates the art of film and the diversity of Lao culture in the country's capital, Vientiane. The annual festival showcases an exciting program of international feature and short films, emerging as an important platform for local filmmakers to screen their works. Due to popular demand, in 2013 the festival launched Mini-Vientianale, Laos' first dedicated short film festival. A highlight of the festival program is its short film competition, which, in 2015, attracted 22 entries from Lao filmmakers and foreign filmmakers living in Laos, working to the theme of “Back to the Roots.” The collection screened at this year's Luang Prabang Film Festival showcases the winning entries, as well as additional top picks from the Vientianale team.

All films are in Lao language with English subtitles. The full collection will be screened every day at 2pm.
