Six new countries - Croatia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Serbia and Slovenia - join the CinEast festival in 2012.
Their participation will be duly celebrated by special welcome evenings that will include the screening of the first film from the relevant country, in the presence of special guests, as well as an informal tasting of typical drinks and snacks.
