  • Organisation

    The Luang Prabang Film Festival (LPFF) is a charitable cultural organisation committed to the celebration of Southeast Asian film and to the growth and support of local and regional film industries and filmmakers.   It envisions that Southeast Asia is a magical part of the world, its cultures are many, and its plotlines are richly diverse and hence its stories need to be told and told well, and people should be watching. The Luang Prabang Film Festival also stands for Cultural Expression. With support from like-minded organisations, they seek to inspire expression and cultural diversity through film.

    LPFF offers a venue for the best of Southeast Asia’s most distinct and unique voices.

    Mutual Exchange: LPFF is an exciting forum for an international exchange where filmmakers share ideas, trends, and techniques. LPFF knows that great films start with great ideas, and so LPFF cultivates the sharing of great ideas and discussion through the many panels and activities.

    Sustainable Industry: LPFF aims to create jobs and income for filmmakers by building connections and supporting a sustainable regional film industry with a particular focus on building capacity in Laos.

    Diversity: LPFF believes strongly in equal representation of all perspectives and takes pride in including content that reflects differences in opinion, ethnicity, gender, and belief.

    • Project

      Finding a VOICE through Film: Phase II is a continuation of the Luang Prabang Film Festival (LPFF)’s Voice grant project from the 2017-2018 cycle. In Phase I of Finding a VOICE through Film, the pilot programme used mentorship as a tool to create a culture of learning and exchange within the budding Lao film industry. Phase II builds on these foundations to reach rural, ethnic communities outside of LPFF’s home base in Luang Prabang through an innovative roadshow.

      The “Houp Ngao Ban Hao” (Films from Our Home) roadshow travels to six provinces in Northern and Central Laos to promote creative expression, open discussion, unity in diversity, and exposure to the voices and stories of fellow Lao nationals within these underrepresented communities.

      By presenting Lao film screenings, interactive learning spaces, and collaborative film projects in provinces where it is unprecedented to provide tools for self-expression. LPFF promotes the representation of the youth, the elderly, women, LGBTI, disabled, and ethnic/indigenous people, and engage these underrepresented groups in activities that support the proliferation of their stories.
