Mission / description Vienna plays host to the LET‘S CEE Film Festival once a year. The festival features exclusively high-quality productions from Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), including the Caucasus region and Turkey. While the historical and geographical proximity to Austria might suggest otherwise, films from those countries have had a hard time finding their way into Austrian cinemas. Since its first instalment in 2012, the LET‘S CEE Film Festival has been providing an exclusive and attractive stage for Central and Eastern European cinematography.

The theme of the Short Film Competition 2017 is: WORLD IN TRANSITION.

The LET‘S CEE Film Festival’s programme features a selection of the best current feature films and documentaries as well as promising short films, all of which take part in the festival‘s film competitions. In addition to those, the festival also features various categories, ranging from legendary classics to topic-related retrospectives and tributes to distinguished children‘s films, depending on the respective topical focus. With only a few exceptions, almost all of the featured films are presented in the respective original versions with English or German subtitles. Many of these are Austrian premieres, being accessible to the Austrian audience for the first time ever.

Mission Statement

One of the LET‘S CEE Film Festival‘s four main goals is to advance the international level of acceptance and distribution of Central and Eastern European films. Apart from that, the festival considers itself a forum aimed at initiating and supporting international film cooperation between filmmakers from the CEE region, Austria and other countries. Another one of LET‘S CEE‘s main goals is to promote promising talent from Central and Eastern Europe and Austria, as well as to make a significant positive contribution to a modern and exemplary understanding of intercultural dialogue, both on a national and international level.
