The festival showcases films coming from Central and Eastern European countries (“goEast”). “It would have been difficult not to perceive the intensive presence of problems of the Easterner under ‘new capitalism'”, writes Matyas Gyözö. “In a broader sense, it was interesting to observe how important the directors considered speaking about these difficulties and menaces which came into the Easterners’ lives with globalisation and with joining the European Union.”
Czech filmmaker Martin Sulik won the Critics’ Prize for his film The City of the Sun.
