Luang Prabang Film Festival
Celebrating Southeast Asian Cinema
Who We Are
The Luang Prabang Film Festival is a charitable cultural organization committed to the celebration of Southeast Asian film and to the growth and support of local and regional film industries and filmmakers. Southeast Asia is a magical part of the world, its cultures are many, and its plot lines are richly diverse. Our vision is to see these stories told, and told well, and we want everyone watching.
What We Do
LPFF is much more than an annual film festival. Our year-round programs offer many unique opportunities for filmmakers and industry professionals. Through these programs, we inspire new ideas and support local artists by giving them the skills and experience to be their own media makers.
The Annual Festival
At the start of every December, the former royal capital of Laos is transformed into a theater. Screens are rigged on garden lawns, within the walls of five-star hotels, at a central market, and the whole town becomes the perfect setting for celebrating the art of cinema. Because LPFF believes in equal access, all of our screenings are open to the public and free of charge.
