Khiri in Travel Director’s Chair as Luang Prabang Film Festival Opens

December 5, 2013 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , ,

The 4th Luang Prabang Film Festival opens this weekend in Laos and runs 7-11 December. The festival’s Official Travel Partner, Khiri Travel, will donate 40% of profits back to the festival. It is also making a cash donation to the charitable cultural event and is contributing the use of a minivan.

“Visitors watch great movies in the evening. During the day or in post-event trips we show them Luang Prabang and Laos,” said Khiri Travel CEO, Willem Niemeijer.

As the official festival website says: “[Khiri Travel] has put together terrific and flexible packages for anyone interested in coming to the festival.”

Khiri Travel will be well represented at the official opening party on 7 December.

The festival is free to attend. At the main outdoor venue, the festival expects audiences of over 1,000 people at some of the screenings. Guests sit on blue plastic chairs — the symbol of the festival, which takes place at three reputable venues.

The Luang Prabang Film Festival is active year-round, producing workshops and educational film activities, arranging special screenings and events, acting as a resource for filmmaking in Laos, and operating the Lao Filmmakers Fund, which allows Lao artists to apply for grants to help make their film projects possible.

Visitors can check out the schedule of films for this year here.
