applying to the fund

The Luang Prabang Film Festival is pleased to announce its fifth call for applications for the Lao Filmmakers Fund. The Fund is publicly generated, and allows Lao filmmakers to apply for small grants to help make their film projects possible.

Grants are currently available once per year. Successful projects are chosen by the Luang Prabang Film Festival's Board of Directors, based on the merits of the project, as well as an organized and feasible plan for execution.

For the 2018 year, the maximum grant request is $15,000 USD (roughly 125,000,000.00 kip), though that does not guarantee that any one project will be given this amount. The number of grants will depend on amount of funding requested and awarded.

The application window for the 2018 cycle is currently open. The deadline for the application is 13 March 2018.
