  • Organisation

    The Luang Prabang Film Festival 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 plot lines 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 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 film makers 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 take pride in including content that reflects differences in opinion, ethnicity, gender, and belief.

    • Project

      Finding a VOICE through Film is a three-part project by the Luang Prabang Film Festival (LPFF). Through this project, LPFF  tests a new approach of facilitating mentorship, particularly between more experienced Lao filmmakers and amateur Lao filmmakers. By building these lasting connections, LPFF will give young filmmakers the opportunity to develop their skills and experienced filmmakers the opportunity to be a force of development within their field. This will, in turn, help create a more self-sustaining Lao film industry, where Lao filmmakers can learn and get inspiration from one another.

      One of the goals of the film festival is to bring filmmakers from across Southeast Asia together in Luang Prabang to encourage mutual exchange and learning between the film industries of the 10 ASEAN countries. While the Lao film industry has a lot to learn from its neighbours, it is also important to create a culture of learning from within the nation. This helps to develop Lao filmmakers’ skills and create a long-lasting community of film makers from which amateurs can draw upon for emulation, advice, and mentorship. Taking into account the fact that more opportunities are afforded to Vientiane-based filmmakers, this project largely focuses on benefiting young people from northern provinces with lower socio-economic backgrounds.

      Workshops are held based in Luang Prabang, with inclusion from young people from neighbouring provinces such as Oudomxay, Xayaburi, Xieng Khuang, and Huaphanh Provinces.
