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 2018 and 2019 cycles of Lao Filmmakers Fund comes from our Lao Identities on Film project, supported by Voice. As part of its mission, Voice works to amplify and connect thus far unheard voices in efforts to leave no one behind.
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.
