There's still time to make it _ Laos is not that far. 

The Luang Prabang Film Festival (LPFF), which screens Southeast Asian films of all genres, opens tomorrow and runs until Dec 11. Now in its fourth year, LPFF celebrates the growth of the regional film industry and aims to make film more accessible to the public. Because there is no cinema in Luang Prabang, screenings are held outdoors at the Handicrafts Night Market, as well as at the Amantaka Hotel and the nearby visitor's centre.

LPFF operates year-round, running workshops and educational activities, and working to support local filmmakers through the Lao Filmmakers Fund. It receives government support from the Ministry of Information, Culture, and Tourism.
