First up with specialties from the region will be our Opening Party with Džambo Aguševi Orchestra (5/10). A tasty selection of hearty traditional dishes from various CEE countries will be served on the venue’s upper floor before and during the music programme. Make your stomach happy and keep up your energy levels to party with us all night long!

Our traditional gastronomic evening at Brasserie Wenzel (9/10) is a more chilled and atmospheric gastro experience. You can combine your own choice of traditional meals from Eastern European countries with regional wine and beer. Holders of a CinEast ticket from the same day will be welcomed with a free aperitif. For reservations please contact the Brasserie directly (

The Closing Party with Attentat Fanfare at Melusina (20/10) will not leave you hungry for long either. You can placate your tummy rumbles with a wide selection of delicious dishes and snacks from our region, available all night long so that  you can enjoy the energetic rhythms into the early hours.

But let’s not stop there! CinEast’s official bar - Café Rocas – is stocking a selection of Central and Eastern European beverages throughout the festival. Before the screenings, sweet and savoury snacks as well as drinks from our region will be available at the festival mini-bar at the Cinémathèque and, for the first time, also at Salle Krieps (Neimënster). And finally for those attending the short film marathons, you get free snacks and refreshments during the breaks and there are coffee & cakes on offer at both Kids Shows in Neimënster. Still hungry?

Bon appétit!
