Here we go! Eastern Promises are celebrating an anniversary! The fifth year of its existence will be marked with the presentation of new, talented filmmakers. We will introduce a great number of the beginning film directors who are endowed with distinct filming skills and unique worldviews. Our selection will encompass the whole region of the former Eastern Bloc, including our neighbouring countries or even more remote areas. We will compare women’s social position in Kazakhstan to the one in the Balkans and taste the reality of the Ukraine war or social unrest in Serbia.
