EU presents 2nd European Food and Film Festival 9-11 December in Vientiane

After a break of two years due to COVID-19, the European Union Delegation to the Lao PDR, along with EU Member States and European partner countries, is delighted to announce the return of the European Food and Film Festival to Vientiane.
The Festival will be held from 9-11 December at Vientiane Centre.
The Festival aims to give its audience an opportunity to experience about Europe’s varied cinematic and culinary culture, to provide space for a cultural exchange and to connect people between Laos and Europe.
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.
The European Union links 27 European States. Along with its partner countries, it works with the Government and people of Lao PDR to improve the environment and enhance prosperity.
