venue Information

Night Venue

We have moved down into the heart of UNESCO's World Heritage Zone for this year's festival. The outdoor courtyard of the Luang Prabang Primary School, once attended by Prince Souphanouvong, the first president of the Lao PDR, can accommodate over 800 people.

Day Venue

Sofitel Luang Prabang, a 5-star resort housed in stately French colonial buildings, will serve as our daytime screening venue. We will show four films each day in their meeting room at the entrance of the property, which can accommodate around 60 people.

Short Film Venue

For the duration of the festival, we will be showing short films at the Friends Visitor Center, the headquarters and gallery space for the Lao Friends Hospital for Children. The screening room can accommodate around 25 people.

Shuttle Service

Every fifteen minutes, a free shuttle is available to bring visitors between the Night Venue and Day Venue, with a stop at the post office along the way.
