29 September 2015
share info
Starting this Wednesday, the 4th LET΄S CEE Film Festival (October 1 to 11) will screen exactly 118, mostly Austrian premieres, feature, documentaries and short films from Central and Eastern Europe.

LET΄S CEE Film Festival 2015 invites interested individuals and parties, migrants and Austrians to engage in an intercultural exchange and dialogue, amidst the continuing lack of support from the public institutions and an increasingly xenophobic climate.

The festival, in which there isn΄t any Greek film, will host more than 100 international film guests and, among its 118 films presented, an abundance of known and awarded Balkan films and co-productions await the Viennese audience. There, besides watching competition and non-competition films, retrospectives or modern Czech and Polish cinema, they will participate in Master Classes, panel discussions as well as exhibitions and concerts.

Closing Films
See You in Montevideo by Dragan Bjelogrlic (Serbia, 2014)

Among the masterclasses taking place this year, Romanian producer Ada Solomon will engage into a discussion on the basic conditions and possible challenges as well as the highs and lows of a production like Aferim!, which she produced. The audience will will be informed on how to find good projects, how to work well with film directors, and why there is no guarantee that the next production is going to be easier than the previous one.

Serbian filmmaker and critical intellectual Zelimir Zilnik is also visiting Vienna to give his own masterclass on the social commitment, humour or grotesque, comedic elements and explicit political criticism, elements essential to his work. At LET’S CEE he will show his, due to the political development, highly topical documentary Logbook Serbistan. 

As an extra treat for the audience, the Balkan Gypsy Brass group Fanfara Transilvania will perform a concert, presenting sounds from different parts of Central Balkans, promising a smashing evening!
