The Go Short festival team has started preparing its tenth edition, which will take place in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Go Short is the only Dutch film festival that screens short films exclusively. For five days around 300 short films are screened in various locations. Besides screenings there are exhibitions, workshops, performances, parties and more! We are now accepting new film submissions for our various competitions.

All shorts completed after 1 December 2016 are eligible to compete in our competition. We will be selecting films for our European, Dutch and Student Competitions. Competitions and awards Go Short accepts short films in all genres for its competition programs (animation, documentary, fiction/live-action and experimental/art film). Films that are selected for the European Competition are eligible for the Go Short Award for Best Short in each genre.

The national short films will be competing for the Go Short Award for Best Dutch Short. The awarded fiction and animation films in the European Competition and the Best Dutch Short also receive an Academy Award Qualifier. One of the student films will be awarded with the Go Short Encouragement Award for Best European Student Short. Besides the awards per competition, all films will also be in the running for the Go Short Audience Award, which will be chosen by the audience during the festival. // In 2017 the total award money amounted to €15.000.
