CULINARY BITES 2021
The Covid restrictions will again affect the CinEast gastronomic events this year. However, you will have a few more opportunities to embark on a culinary adventure through Eastern and Central Europe during this 14th edition of the festival.
The two events at Melusina - the Opening Event with Vasko & The Uncles From The Dark (Fri, 8/10) and the Closing Event with Flying Orkestar (Fri, 22/10) - will serve up a tasty selection of hearty traditional dishes from several CEE countries. These will be served on the venue’s upper floor before and during the music programme to make your stomach happy and keep up your energy levels to dance the night away!
Eastern European specialties will also spice up the CinEast Night @Vantage Bar (Wed, 13/10). To accompany the live performance of the Serbian and Luxembourgish collaborative project Funkier, you will be able to enjoy some traditional CEE food and drinks.
At several of the special events in Neimënster drinks and snacks will be available after ciné-debates and during breaks in the short film marathons and the Kids Show. For the sake of your health, the mini-bar at the Cinémathèque will remain closed.
The concerts are back and so is the nightlife in bars! We once again invite you to our official bar - Rocas Café - which will be offering a selection of Central and Eastern European beverages throughout the duration of the festival. You will be able to share your opinions and feelings about the films in the cosy atmosphere of the venue while enjoying Czech beer, Romanian wine or Polish vodka, among others, and maybe even crossing paths with some festival guests.
We hope that in this edition of CinEast you will allow us to delight your taste buds with this more extensive offer of gastro events.
