Eastern Neighbours Film Festival celebrates the best films and most talented filmmakers from Eastern and Southeast Europe. The festival takes pride in not only connecting east with west, but also connecting genres and themes. At ENFF the viewer can encounter historic rarities next to experimental art house films, political dramas next to romance. Our world is becoming smaller and people and cultures more interconnected. ENFF aims to be the forum where people of all backgrounds can meet to enjoy the creations of Eastern European makers, discover original stories, and meet new friends.
