Expo ‘Dreams of Escape’ & Kuba Więcek Trio @CinEast Festival
Since 2021, CinEast, a film festival dedicated to cinema from Central and Eastern Europe, is the occasion to discover documentaries and short films beside its main focus on contemporary films, but also exhibitions and concerts.
This year, we invite you to discover an exhibition at the Cloître of Neimënster reflecting the festival’s thematic cycle “Dreams of Escape”. It will present five projects by Belgian, Czech, German and Polish artists, among others Martyna Wojtkowska. View the exhibition catalogue.
CinEast also welcomes the well-known young saxophonist and composer Kuba Więcek with his trio for a cinéconcert with live soundtrack to the movie Ménilmontant (Dimitri Kirsanoff, 1926). Together with Michał Barański on double bass and Łukasz Żyta on drums, the trio will play the live soundtrack to the film Ménilmontant by the Estonian director Dimitri Kirsanoff (1926). After the movie, the ensemble will continue with a selection of the trio’s most successful own compositions.

Despite his young age, the saxophonist and composer Kuba Więcek is currently one of the most recognised jazz musicians in Poland. His distinctive style draws inspiration not only from the world of jazz but also classical, electronic and even rock music. His debut album Another Raindrop was released in the prestigious “Polish Jazz” series, which is normally reserved for the most respected maestros of the genre, such as Komeda, Kurylewicz or Stańko. The winner of many awards (including the Polish music industry’s Fryderyk Award) and regularly performing all around the world, he has collaborated with great musicians such as Ralph Alessi, Gilad Hekselman, George Garzone, and many others.
