The Festival will be held from 9-11 December at Vientiane Centre.

The Film Festival will show a dozen European films, long and short, reflecting the diversity of perspectives, histories and national cultures of Europe, and promoting cultural cooperation between Europe and the Lao PDR.

The selected films will be shown in their original language with Lao and English subtitles, and offer a variety of genres, including science fiction, documentaries, cartoons for children, and historical dramas. Entry to all screenings will be free of charge.

In combination with the Film Festival, the ninth European Food Festival will take place outside the main entrance of the Vientiane Centre, with Vientiane-based restaurants offering food from Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy and Spain.

The audience will have a chance to experience the range of Europe’s rich culinary traditions at a reasonable price.
