This book re-examines notions of East and West in contemporary European cinema. In East, West and Centre the world's leading scholars in the field assemble to consider the ways in which notions such as East and West, national and transnational, central and marginal are being rethought and reframed in contemporary European cinema. Assessing the state of post-1989 European cinema, from (co)production and reception trends to filmic depictions of migration patterns, economic transformations and socio-political debates over the past and the present, they address increasingly intertwined cinema industries that are both central (France and Germany) and marginal in Europe (Romania, Bulgaria, Lithuania). It is the most comprehensive investigation of Central European cinema in the early 21st century. Contributions address recent films from or about Bulgaria, France, Germany, Lithuania, and Romania. It aims to introduce readers to new films and directors from different national and transnational cinemas. It is an essential read for those interested in wider European studies, as well as students and scholars in film and media studies.

"A valuable collection of essays exploring the East-West European cinematic relationship. Each essay stands on its own, some engaging in analysis of specific films, others offering an overview of a "minor" national cinema...[the volume] will be of interest to anyone researching contemporary European cinema and particularly those interested in the relationship between eastern and western Europe." -- David N. Coury, German Studies Review
