CinÉast prepares fifth edition

Everything is ready for the CinÉast 5th edition (October 11-28), one of the most unconventional film festivals in Europe, to be held in Luxembourg. CinÉast presents a selection of films from central and eastern Europe, while seeking complementarities between cinema and other art forms, such as music and photography. It is also a forum for conviviality and exchange of ideas among the participants taking part in the numerous events.

2012 will also be the year of the ‘CinÉast Pro’, the first workshop for film professionals with the aim to promote an exchange of ideas between Luxembourg and Eastern Europe.

And what also makes this edition special is the huge number of events on offer, from the 'Back to the Roots' exhibition to 'Welcome to…' nights, from the short film marathon to the gastronomic nights, the public will discover a different country each time and be able to watch and tasting its history and culture.

"Make sure you leave CinÉast 2012 without missing any of its attractions - I know it sounds impossibile – but it is definitely worth it," said Artistic Director Hynek Dedecius.
