The Luang Prabang Film Festival (LPFF) brings together the boldest storytellers and the most talked about films in Southeast Asia. Our curators handpick these films from ten countries, spotlighting them each year in the World Heritage Site of Luang Prabang.
This inspiring environment, rich in culture, provides an ideal backdrop for artists and industry professionals to share their experiences and showcase their talent. It is a festival for the adventurous, and is quickly becoming known as one of the most exotic and exciting locations on the international film festival circuit.
The Luang Prabang Film Festival is a charitable cultural organization committed to the celebration of Southeast Asian film and to the growth and support of local and regional film industries and filmmakers.
THE VISION OF Luang Prabang Film Festival
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.
