CentEast is a network of key feature film festivals in Central and Eastern Europe, which includes one festival per country.

The purpose of CentEast is to promote European cinema, with special attention paid to the cinema from Central and Eastern Europe, helping films from the region to find a place on the international market, and encouraging collaboration between member festivals.

CentEast was initiated by the Warsaw International Film Festival in the Autumn of 2001, and was officially founded at the Cottbus Film Festival on 7 November 2003.

Slovakia is represented at CentEast by the International Film Festival Bratislava.
