Since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War, it is both possible and necessary to remap our conceptions of Europe, European citizenship and European cinema(s). Political, social, and cultural concepts of what is “East” and what is “West” are in constant revision. The introduction examines some of the ways by which Contemporary European cinema actively works to reframe notions of East, West and centre. The introduction gives an overview of trends in national and transnational cinemas, including migrant films, ‘return’ films, multilingual films, and poses crucial questions and topics that will be dealt with in detail by in the chapters of this volume.

Keywords:   European cinema, ‘return’ films, Migrant cinema, Immigration, Post-communism, Eastern Europe, Transnational cinema
