Who We Are

The Luang Prabang Film Festival is a non-profit cultural organization committed to the celebration of Southeast Asian film, the growth of local and regional film industries, and the cultivation of regional audiences. We want to see a diversity of Southeast Asian stories told well and shared with the world.

What We Do

LPFF is much more than a film festival. Our year-round programs offer various unique opportunities for filmmakers and industry professionals. Through these activities, 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.
