Previously known as Central European Film Festival, CinEast hits Luxembourg for the third time with more than 30 feature films and lots more on offer. We had a little interview with the organisers.

Now in it’s third year in Luxembourg the Central European Film Festival has moved on and expanded to become CinEast, (to be pronounced ciné east) screening a massive array of outstanding cinematographic works, as last year, from Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia.

However this year the event sees the addition of a “guest country” feature, Romania, reinforcing the increasingly popular festival. This feature is planned in the future too and the guest country changed to be different each year.

More than 30 feature films both new and old, documentaries, animation and short films are all on the agenda that runs from 9th to 21st November at various venues throughout Luxembourg.

The list of locations this year for screenings is quite a big one: Mostly at Abbaye de Neumünster and Cinémathèque de la Ville de Luxembourg, but also several at University of Luxembourg, the Ancien Cinéma(Vianden) and Caramba Cinemas(Esch sur Alzette).

All films will be shown in their original language and most of them with English subtitles although 1 or 2 are subtitled in French so check the timetable for details.

For the first time, the Festival will include a “Grand Prix” awarded by an independent jury comprised of leading representatives from Luxembourg’s film scene, as well as an “Audience Award”.

It’s not all high-brow adult stuff as there are also special screenings of children cartoons and animated films (without spoken language) for the kids.

And if all that’s not enough festival-goers will also have an opportunity to discover the cuisines of our countries taking part and enjoy music too! Well known Polish rock band T-Love will take to the stage at Exit07 in Hollerich.

Add to that an exhibition depicting symbolically the fall of communist regimes, organised by the Polish Embassy in Luxembourg, and you have an enlightening and educational festival with pretty much something for everyone.

The main theme of this edition is “Borderline” with numerous feature movies and documentaries providing diverse perspectives of borders in our lives, both physical and intangible.
