Ten new Eastern European films from Warsaw to Moscow at the CentEast Market

A record number of 226 Polish and international film professionals – producers, distributors, sales agents and festival programmers – have registered for the tenth CentEast Market at the Warsaw Film Festival, which opens today (17 October) with the China-Europe Film Promotion Project. 

Ten new Eastern European films will first be introduced at Warsaw’s Kinoteka 7, and will then screen with more Russian works in progress on 20 October in Moscow, during TVINDIE’s Project for Tomorrow (formerly the Red Square Screenings); finally, they will be shown again in April 2015 during the Beijing Film Market by China’s Film Factory. Seven new Chinese film projects will be launched in Warsaw.

For the first time, the CentEast Market will welcome a Guest Country: Ukraine, which is also strongly represented in other parts of the festival programme.

The market runs until 19 October.
