Luang Prabang Film Festival set for December 4 to 11

The Luang Prabang Film Festival is set for December 4 to 11 with plans to present more than 30 films from Southeast Asia.

Marking the 35th anniversary of the Lao PDR and Luang Prabang's 15th year on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list, the free screenings will take place in two outdoor venues in the old royal capital of Laos.

After the festival, four films will tour other provinces in Laos, with screenings held over two-night stops in each city.

Project goals include encouraging and celebrating filmmaking in Southeast Asia, stimulating a film industry in Laos, educating Laotians about the art of film and also media literacy, inspire young Laotians to enter the film industry and support the local economy through tourism.

Check the website over the coming months for more about the films.


  1. I'm starting to suspect that the Luang Prabang Film Festival may be a scam? Why no updates on their website since June? Less than 60 days away and still no program of films has been posted?

  2. They do have an updated Facebook page.

    But as of yet, not even a partial lineup of films to announce.
