VIENTIANE, March 16 (Xinhua) — Organizers of the China-Laos Film
Festival have expected to promote culture exchanges between the two
countries as the 2021 version of the event are being held in Lao capital
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the film festival on Monday,
Director of Department of Cinema Khamphao Vannavong said this is the
fourth time that the Department of Cinema collaborated with the Chinese
side to host the event, which has become an activity that integrates the
friendly relations between the Lao-Chinese people with increasing
popularity among Lao people.
“I believed that China-Laos Film Festival will become a platform for
cultural exchange between the two nations by watching Chinese films in
Lao language. It will also create opportunities for people of all ethnic
groups in Laos to get to know and learn more about Chinese culture,”
The China-Laos Film Festival 2021 invited famous Lao artists and
professionals to participate in the dubbing of four Chinese movies and
some Lao movies.
The movies will be screened in eight provinces of Laos including
Champasak, Sekong, Khammuan, Luang Prabang, Oudomxay, Huaphan, Bokeo and
Xieng Khuang, besides capital Vientiane.
The opening ceremony was held by the Department of Cinema under the
Lao Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism in collaboration with
China Media Group.
Lao Deputy Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism Savankhone
Razmounty and more than 500 representatives from both sides attended the
ceremony and watched Chinese films in Lao language.
Apart from showing movies, the Chinese side will also donate movie players, and train technical staff in Laos. Enditem
