CinEast, the Central and Eastern European Film Festival in Luxembourg, has announced that its recent charity film screening raised more than €5,000 for victims of the Russia-Ukraine war.

CinEast, in collaboration with LUkraine asbl (a local non-profit organisation representing the Ukrainian community in Luxembourg), organised a charity screening of the Ukrainian-Lithuanian documentary "The Earth Is Blue As An Orange" at Kinepolis Kirchberg on Thursday 31 March 2022.

Through this event and additional donations, the organisers raised a total amount of €5,432.52. CinEast will transfer this money to LUkraine asbl to be used for the purchase and delivery of medical supplies to Ukraine.
