The festival

The CinEast (ciné-East) film festival, held every autumn in Luxembourg and other towns in the Grand Duchy, is constantly looking eastwards. Strictly dedicated to the film production of the post-communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe, CinEast aims to share the best cinema from the region spiced up with a wide range of accompanying events, thus presenting a rare occasion for audiences in Luxembourg to find out about the culture of the countries represented in a more general sense. With around a hundred different feature and short films from 18 countries screened during the 18 festival days, the CinEast film festival wishes to provide a concise, current and representative overview of Central and Eastern European cinema.
