CentEast - The Alliance of Central and Eastern European Film Festivals

CentEast is a network of key film festivals of feature films in Central and Eastern Europe, which includes one festival per country.

The purpose of CentEast is promoting European cinema, with special attention paid to the cinema from Central and Eastern Europe, helping films from the region to find a place on the international market, and encouraging the collaboration between the member festivals.

CentEast was initiated by the Warsaw International Film Festival in the autumn of 2001, and was officially founded at the Cottbus Film Festival on 7 November 2003.
