goEast - Festival of Central and Eastern European Films

Launched in 2001 by Deutsches Filminstitut, goEast revolves round films made in Central and Eastern Europe. In the course of seven days in Wiesbaden, goEast unfolds a diverse programme encompassing cinematic trends, experimental positions and historical rarities. The agenda of goEast, conceived as a forum of east-west dialogue, is dominated by questions of (multiple) European identities and processes of rapid social and political transformation. The programme expresses a cultural mission: to provide a public platform for remarkable, unusual and engaged films unlikely to find distribution on the commercial cinema circuit. Festival visitors – filmmakers and industry specialists from Germany and abroad, local film enthusiasts and international guests – are enthusiastic about the quality and special atmosphere of a festival that facilitates the exchange of skills and knowledge. goEast is dedicated to the cinematic experience, to new developments and topical themes, to the artistic heritage of Eastern European film.
