Luang Prabang Film Festival

Celebrating Southeast Asian Cinema

Who We Are

The Luang Prabang Film Festival is a non-profit cultural organization. We are committed to the celebration of Southeast Asian film and the growth of local and regional film industries. 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 our annual film festival. Our year-round programs offer various unique opportunities for filmmakers and industry professionals. Through these programs, we provide local artists with the skills and experience they need to represent their own communities on the screen. 

The Annual Festival

At the start of every December, the former royal capital of Laos transforms into a theater. Screens are rigged on garden lawns, within the walls of five-star hotels, at a central market. The whole town becomes the perfect setting for celebrating the art of cinema. Because LPFF believes in equal access, all of our screenings are free and open to the public.
