Sections 2020

The goEast programme is divided into different sections, each with its own profile: Competition, Symposium, East-West Talent Lab, Open Frame Award, RheinMain Shortfilm Award, an anually changing thematic section, Bioscop, Portrait/Homage (alternately, annually), and Specials.
Each section is curated carefully. Festival correspondents and experts support the programme team. The entries to the competition are nominated by a selection committee. The sections serve to build bridges between Central and Eastern European auteur film and experimental film, from current genre cinema to rediscovered historical films. Documentaries have conquered their rightful place beside the feature films.
