share info
CinEast Festival of Central and Eastern European films runs for the 7th consecutive time in the unique multinational and multicultural Grand Duchy of Luxemburg. Til October 26, the festival is screening around a hundred films of all shapes and sizes. To cap this, CinEast FF 2014 organizes exhibitions, Q&As with guests, debates and special thematic and gastronomy evenings too. 

Films competing for the Grand Prix and the Special Prize of the Jury while East Goes West section presents a selection of films by artists from Central and Eastern Europe made in the West. 

25 years after the dissolution of the Eastern Bloc and 10 years after the accession of many eastern European countries to the EU, the cinematography of the post-communist countries seems as strong as ever, with festivals screening Eastern-Europe and Balkan films also create fuzz.
