CinEast, the Central and Eastern European Film Festival in Luxembourg, is celebrating its eighth edition from 8-25 October. The programme features over 100 titles (including feature-length and short films from 18 countries), as well as an appealing selection of seven recent features to be presented as part of the festival’s main competition section.

Hynek Dedecius is once again assuring the artistic direction of the festival, while the main jury will be composed of director Andrzej Zulawski, producer-director Yann Tonnar, producer Alexandra Hoesdorff, director Ina Ivanceanu and actress Vicky Krieps.

Other, non-competitive, sections of the gathering include a selection of comedies (“FunnyEast”), documentaries (“CinéDocs”), and a series of titles born between the East and the West (“East Goes West”), among others.

In an attempt to establish a dialogue with other art forms, CinEast is also organising a number of special events in parallel with the screenings, including a major photography exhibition at Neumünster Abbey entitled “Urban Stories”, in which curator Jagna Olejnikowska will gather together seven photography projects that approach the urban theme as a social phenomenon in permanent mutation.

The programme also includes concerts and musical events at Melusina, Neimënster and Rotondes, as well as a film concert at the Cinémathèque. It is a continuation of the diversified artistic approach already implemented at previous editions, which has helped to build up the festival’s local rising reputation and growing audiences.

Currently, CinEast covers films from all of the former communist countries that have become members of the EU (Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia), as well as all the other countries of the former Yugoslavia, including Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro and Kosovo. Moldova and Ukraine are also represented.
