Luang Prabang Film Festival (LPFF) is taking its 10th year to online.

The films selected for the festival at Laos will be made available to audiences in South-East Asia and 10 ASEAN countries for free.

In a press release, the event’s executive director Sean Chadwell said: “We're well known for bringing audiences to a film festival in a town without a movie theatre.

"This year, we can't bring the audiences, so we're taking the festival to them."

Founded in 2009, LPFF serves to support regional and local cinema, as well as offers educational opportunities for filmmakers.

This year, the festival is set to showcase the best in contemporary ASEAN cinema. Included from this year onwards is the showcase of short films.

Director of programming Bree Fitzgerald explained: “Many filmmakers start off in this (shorts) category.

"As an organisation that prioritises supporting emerging talents, it makes sense that we would create a space for filmmakers producing at this length.”

Those interested in checking out the films may visit closer to the festival date.
