Representing Laos in the Asia Pacific Screen Awards

The 2017 Vientianale Film Festival has been another highly successful and inspiring film festival. Our festival is continually growing and reaching out to new partners. We are therefore proud to announce that we have recently been chosen as the official submitting member organization representing Laos in the Asia Pacific Screen Awards. From now on Vientianale Film Festival will be in charge of submitting films from the Lao People’s Democratic Republic for these esteemed awards that celebrate films from all the Asia Pacific countries. We are very excited about bringing films from Laos further into the spotlight.
