Terms and Conditions

From 18 to 22 of November 2020, MitOst invites its friends and members, as well as everyone interested in cultural and civic exchange in Europe and its neighbouring regions, to the 18th International MitOst Festival. This year, due to the global health situation and the restrictions related to the outbreak of covid-19, the festival will take place online.


Registration for the 18th International MitOst Festival first requires signing up using an online form. Participants who have successfully signed up will receive the festival newsletter and a link to log in on the event platform zummit. The registration on the event platform is required to take part in the festival.

Technical Requirements

The festival will be realised by means of the event platform zummit and the video conference provider Zoom. Participants will need a computer, tablet or smartphone with internet access and speakers. Registered participants will receive information on technical details before the first day of the festival. After registration on the event platform zummit, participants can access the programme with all events and further pre-uploaded contents as well as connect with other festival participants.

Festival Contribution

Instead of a festival fee, we ask for a voluntary contribution that will directly flow into existing initiatives of members from the MitOst community. During the MitOst Festival participants  will together decide which initiatives will get supported through the festival contributions. The contribution is based on the principle of solidarity and participants decide on the amount of their contribution. A contribution of minimum 10 euros is recommended.

Payment Options

The festival contribution should be transferred within 14 days after the registration to the following bank account.

Bank Transfer

We ask participants who do not have an EU bank account and cannot use Paypal to consult with us about other payment options at info(at)mitost.org.


The festival language is English. We want to make the International MitOst Festival as linguistically inclusive as possible.Within our capacities, we offer language mediation (consecutive translation, multilingual events, subtitled movies and video recordings) in German, English and Russian for individual sessions.

Use of Recordings and Photographs

The 18th International MitOst Festival will be documented in video, photo (screenshots) and audio recordings. By registering for the festival, participants agree to the publication of images of themselves. MitOst, as the organiser of the festival, can use these images for documentation and PR in a channel or medium of its choice.


By signing up for the 18th International MitOst Festival participants commit bindingly to the participation in the MitOst Festival. We kindly ask registered participants who will not attend the festival to cancel their participation via e-mail to festival@mitost.orgl. This enables our organisational processes to run smoothly.
