goEast's interdisciplinary side bar program brings filmmakers, artists and the audience from the Rhine-Main area together and aims to increase the visibility of Central and Eastern European culture in our region. "High culture" and "popular culture" meet and stimulate each other in order to dissolve their supposed contradictions.
In September 2020 there was an actual picnic in cooperation with cultural associations from the Rhine-Main area. Futhermore, a walk with short films was presented in Wiesbaden-Klarenthal by the Hamburg based artists' group "A Wall is a Screen". The RheinMain Short Film Tour will continue in November 2020.
Other events have already taken place during the festival week at goEast > online in May.
The Pan-European Picnic is supported by Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain as part of the funding initiative "Erzählung.Macht.Identität".
For the second time the RheinMain Short Film Award was given. Overall eight Central and Eastern European short films will be available at cinemas in the Rhine Main region over the course of the year. More information about each film can be found here.
