The 15th edition of CinÉast, the Central and Eastern European Film Festival in Luxembourg, will take place from 6-23 October. After two hybrid editions in 2020 and 2021, the event is back to mainly unspooling in the cinemas, with around 120 physical screenings of 55 features and 45 short films on the agenda. The venues are cinemas in the city of Luxembourg as well as in Vianden, Dudelange and Esch. Again, there is a collaboration in place with the nearby German city of Saarbrücken. Moreover, the festival is maintaining its in-house online VoD platform and will make some of the films accessible via the CinÉast Online Cinema, but once again, this will only be for viewers in Luxembourg.

The film productions being shown in Luxembourg this year come from 20 different countries, with a focus on the former Eastern Bloc. As a common thread, the festival has chosen the topic of “communities”, which not only encompasses films, but also a photo exhibition. Besides that, another focus is on Ukrainian films: the special sidebar will show feature-length and short films from Ukraine, such as Luxembourg, Luxembourg [+lee también:

, at CinÉast in 2019 – will also open this 15th edition. The comedy, which tells the story of two very different brothers, previously took part in this year's Venice Film Festival, in the Orizzonti section. The opening gala will be enlivened by a concert by Czech band MYDY.

This fits in perfectly with the second focus of the festival, which is dedicated to the Czech Republic. Eleven films from the country will show how the nation’s cinema has developed and flourished in the hands of the youngest generations, taking after acclaimed names such as Miloš Forman, Jiří Menzel and Věra Chytilová. The programme will showcase productions that have already been screened at international festivals, such as Il Boemo [+lee también:

The international jury comprises Macedonian director Teonora Strugar Mitevska, who will preside over the jury, as well as Luxembourgish actor Luc Schiltz, Czech director Erika Hníková, Luxembourgish producer Marion Guth and Polish director Dawid Nickel.

More than 30 international guests will attend the festival, and once again this year, alongside the film screenings, the gathering will host several debates and concerts, as well as three exhibitions that all deal with the artistic and film-industry realities in or related to Central and East European countries.

More information about this year’s programme can be found on the festival’s website.
