blogEast is a project of goEast – Festival of Central and Eastern European Film. The blog was created during the first Corona wave in Europe as a solidary mouthpiece for film (culture) creators from all over Europe. In the coming weeks, blog posts will be published that highlight cinematic as well as political and social facets of today's situation, but also offer a way to distract from the omnipresent discussion about infection figures and vaccination progress. blogEast is supervised and edited by the goEast team and accompanies the digital festival in Wiesbaden.

Information Concerning the Drive-In Cinema

With a heavy heart, the goEast - Festival Management had to come to the conclusion that a staging of the drive-in cinema from 21-23 April 2021 is not possible in the current pandemic situation.

The unclear situation regarding the continuation or intensification of the previous Corona measures of the State of Hesse and the City of Wiesbaden will not make a public event possible; we are in constant exchange with the relevant authorities of the city on this matter.

We are currently checking with all parties involved whether it is possible to postpone the event to a later date in the year, but we cannot give any concrete dates at the moment.
