Over the past six editions of the festival, festival organisers have developed a strong relationship with the Cinema Department of the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism. Mr. Vithoune Soundala, Head of the Department, and his staff have committed their full support to the festival.

Among them have been the embassies of Germany, EU, Luxemburg, France, USA, UK, Australia, India, Canada, Japan, the Philippines and Singapore in Laos, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), Goethe Institute Bangkok, Institut Francais Vientiane, dvv, DAAD, KFW, Swiss Embassy Bangkok, National Commission for Culture and the Arts of the Republic of the Philippines, Film Society of Kunstsalon Köln, Banque Franco-Lao, Walking Street, Cornetto, Crown Plaza hotel, Suntara restaurant, Beer Lao, Coca Cola, Asia Pacific Breweries and Lao Telecom. Vientianale also partners with local organisations Mind Media (formerly Doklao) and Lao New Wave Cinema for On The Road and ongoing development workhops.
