Lao Filmmakers Fund
Founded and operated by LPFF, the Lao Filmmakers Fund is the country’s first and only regular grant program for film projects. The Fund is publicly generated, and supports Lao film projects through small grants.
Grants are currently available once a year. LPFF’s Board of Directors selects the winning projects based on their merit, as well as an organized, feasible budget and execution plan.
Support for the 2016, 2018, and 2019 cycles of the Lao Filmmakers Fund comes from Oxfam International. As part of its mission, Oxfam works to provide opportunities that allow for vulnerable communities’ real participation in civil society.
For the 2019 year, the maximum grant request is $15,000 USD (roughly 130,000,000 kip). This does not guarantee any one project’s receipt of this amount. The number of grants LPFF will award depends on the chosen projects’ required budgets.
How to Apply
The applications for the 2019 cycle are now closed. LPFF will contact applicants in late October about their proposals.
