The 21st edition of goEast – Festival of Central and Eastern European Film, organised by DFF - Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum, will this year run online from 20 to 26 April, and is set to feature 92 films which will be available to German audiences on-demand and will include 32 national and two international premieres. Screenings for the jury and for a limited number of press representatives will be held in cinemas, in accordance with the current COVID-19 pandemic protection regulations of the state government of Hessen.

As every year, goEast will offer highlights from the current Central and Eastern European cinema via its Competition programme, which for the first time will be available to the audience through the VoD provider filmwerte. The Competition jury, comprising artist and director Saodat Ismailova, producer and filmmaker Volia Chajkouskaya, documentarian Thomas Heise, actress, director and Roma activist Alina Dieerban, and film critic Jay Weissberg, will be welcomed at goEast’s physical cinema, the Caligari FilmBühne in Wiesbaden, where they will watch and evaluate the films to decide who will win the €10,000 Golden Lily.

The 16 films – 9 fiction and 7 documentaries – of the Competition programme derive from the entire post-socialist area of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Festival director Heleen Gerritsen explained: “As a thematic focus, this year we see a return to partisan stories in the Competition. This is an important subject in the Central and Eastern European cinema landscape, one that is at times wrapped up in mythology too, and is now approached from new angles in the current films in our programme – for example, from the point of view of female partisans, or from a Roma perspective as well."

At the Pan-European Picnic, the main question to be explored will be the promotion of intercultural encounters when distancing regulations keep individuals and cultures apart, aiming to prove that the collective experience of (film) culture is also possible at a distance. Some examples include the genuine K67 Ost-Kiosk, which goEast has installed as a festival meeting place, and the evening short film walk which will lead guests through Offenbach by night in May and open a new vista to cinema by projecting films onto house facades.

Finally, the Open Frame Award, the most innovative competition at goEast, will once again feature the digital venues of Caligari VR and the goEast VRoofTop Lounge. The programme will include a selection of Central and Eastern European virtual reality and 360° film projects that extend in various innovative forms of narrative art, from poetic experiments to interactive experiences for the senses, and will be vying for the €5,000 prize sponsored by BHF Bank Foundation.
