From 7-24 October, the 14th edition of the Central and Eastern European Film Festival CinÉast will be held in Luxembourg. The focus of the festival is on the newest productions from these regions, showing off the potential and the mastery of directors from different generations. Around 110 physical screenings will be held during the gathering in Luxembourg City, but also in other towns across the country, such as Vianden, Dudelange and Esch. As part of its international scope, the festival also includes screenings in the nearby German city of Saarbrücken. In addition to this, it will be possible to watch the majority of the films online as well, on the festival’s own VoD platform, CinÉast Online Cinema, but this will be restricted to within Luxembourg.

The Cinéfocus section is an additional sidebar of the festival that features the work of young Romanian actress Ioana Bugarin, Croatian production company Antitalent and Lithuanian producer Marija Razgute.

Once again this year, alongside the film screenings, the gathering will host several debates and concerts, plus three exhibitions that all deal with the artistic realities, and those specific to the film industry, within the Central and Eastern European countries.
