Slovak films at the first online goEast 2020
The 20th goEast (Festival of Central and Eastern European Film) will take place despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. On the promised dates (May 5 – 11, 2020) it is however moving to the online space. As the art of film belongs to the cinema, the festival team decided to postpone several program sections until the end of this year with promised participation of expected guests.
The re-scheduling will affect, among other things, the retrospective section Symposium, which will present a Slovak film by Martin Šulík The Garden. The festival will also present contemporary Slovak works - the Specials section will open with the black and white feature film Servants (d. Ivan Ostrochovský). Another black and white film in the program is a minority co-production The Painted Bird (d. Václav Marhoul) included in the Europa Europa section. The selection closes with the political documentary Never Happened (d. Barbora Berezňáková) from the Bioscop section.
