Everybody who has ever been to Luang Prabang, Laos, will have experienced some of the feelings that this lovely little town on the Mekong inevitable triggers in the visitor: the wish to settle there, to retire there, to stop smoking, lead a quite, healthy life and do a lot of yoga there, or to open a little vegetarian restaurant there.

Gabriel Kuperman, an American photographer residing in Luang Prabang, has another idea: He wants to establish a film festival there to celebrate the film culture of Southeast Asia and to stimulate a film industry in the wake of the Thai-Lao film co-production Sabaidee Luang Prabang, the first local film in over 20 years, that did reasonably well at the box office in Thailand.

The festival is set for the early December 2010, Kuperman has the support of the  Lao Department of Cinema, and he is currently looking for sponsors. Those interested should take a look at his project proposal.
