“A group of Central European cinema-lovers living in Luxembourg once decided to fill in the gap and share some of the most interesting films from their four countries with a view of enriching the local culture scene. The first edition of Festival du Film d’Europe Centrale was held in the Abbaye de Neumünster in October 2008 and was met with a considerable success (over 2300 spectators). In 2009, the Cinémathèque kindly accepted to become the second festival venue and although the number of movie fans attending the projections rose to 3600, the festival still managed to maintain the original laidback and friendly „unofficial” atmosphere. And we hope to keep it that way this year too.
We are proud to present to you the third edition of the festival under a new name „CinEast” (to be pronounced „ciné east”), with an official competition, a fifth „guest country” Romania, several new venues and features and, again, much richer and more variedprogramme dotted with numerous special events. However, the festival is still organised by the same bunch of volunteers who dedicate a lot of their free time to make it happen and, hopefully, to bring you some unforgettable experiences and pleasure in discovering new cinema worlds.”
