Luang Prabang Film Festival has poster-design contest, Lao Filmmakers Fund

The Luang Prabang Film Festival, which a couple days ago announced its 2013 lineup of Southeast Asian movies, has a couple other things going on – a poster-design contest and the Lao Filmmakers Fund.

Here's the details on the movie poster design contest:

Any designer living in Southeast Asia is invited to submit a movie poster design for a fictitious film called My Mother's Wedding. This is not an existing movie, nor one in production, so we encourage graphic designers to imagine what might happen in the film, who the main characters are, and how the film might take place in their own country of origin. First Place prize is $750, and the Top 20 will be displayed at the LPFF Visitor Center during the festival.

Meanwhile, there's the Lao Filmmakers Fund. Here's more about that:

The fund is publicly generated, and allows filmmakers in Laos to apply for small grants to help make their film projects possible. Grants are currently available once per year. Successful projects will be 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. In our first year, the maximum grant Aaount is $3000 USD.

Deadline for entries is October 15. For more details, hit up the links above or the festival's Facebook page

The Luang Prabang Film Festival runs from December 7 to 11 in the UNESCO World Heritage former royal capital of Laos.
