GO SHORT FOR BIG IDEAS Exactly 10 years ago we presented our first festival program to the world. And every year it is still one of the most exciting moments of the year. Will it fit together? Will it inspire those who are watching, maybe even affect the way they see the world? People still ask me why we focus on short film. The answer never changes: it is because of the richness, the passion and the ambition the format shows. It is because of voices that need to be heard, images that need to be seen and bold choices that need to be recognized. The short format goes beyond all. It stands out in the cinema, just as it does online or in any new format.

It makes us happy and satisfied to see that Dutch directors seem to understand and appreciate the short format better and better. We see a new generation with a distinctive style emerging. They are successful at festivals worldwide and are able to follow their passion. I hope that Go Short has given their careers as big a boost as possible and will do so for the next generation as well. Kirsten Ruber, Festival Director

RUBY DEELEN (NL)

GABE VAN AMBURGH (US)

REBER DOSKY (NL)

Sebastian Mulder graduated as a filmmaker at the HKU University of the Arts Utrecht in 2016. His graduation film Nature: All Rights Reserved is a documentary which investigates the role of nature simulations in our modern urban society and won the Encouragement Award for Best Student Film at Go Short 2017. In that year he also participated in a talent development program at the Dutch TV broadcaster VPRO. His work, mainly documentaries but also more experimental video work, comes from an intuitive and playful curiosity and can be described as essayistic, humorous or philosophical. In his films he often reflects on the dualism and correlations between men, nature and technology.

Aneta Ozorek is Artistic Director of KLIK Amsterdam Animation Festival, film curator and education expert. She has 15 years of industry experience in production of film events, educational workshops, exhibitions and festivals on the Polish and European market.

THIS FESTIVAL’S WINNING SHORT FILMS MAY QUALIFY FOR CONSIDERATION FOR THE

EUROPEAN COMPETITION Every year it takes us around eight months to select the 60 films that form our European Competition. We open our call for entry in May, while final discussions about the biggest program of our festival won’t take place until February. This year we decided to work with a more compact selection committee. This allowed us to discuss the competition as a whole and to get a more consistent program as a result. Although the number of entries was still quite overwhelming we are happy to present our strong selection for this year’s edition on the big screen.

GO SHOR T – INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL NIJMEGEN

While watching the films we noticed that more and more filmmakers are fading the boundaries between genres. This leads to many interesting results, but also plays nicely with the expectations of audiences as well as our need to try and put films in boxes. A large number of the documentaries incorporate strong fiction elements and are not afraid to show these off, while

the fiction films are leaning to a documentary approach to create a more life-like mood. As always you can find some of this year’s heavy-hitters in these 13 programs, like the amazing Swedish The Burden or the Portuguese Flores, both of which have been receiving high acclaim in the short film world. But we are also happy to present a number of brand new films that are just starting to leave their marks at the festivals, like the animations Coyote and Marfa and the documentary As We’re Told. More than enough short film gems to discover. For the second year we are proud to be able to present the winners of our Go Short Best Fiction and Best Animation award – as well as our Best Documentary award, for the first time – with a qualifier for the Oscars.

Director: Antoinette Zwirchmayr art film / Austria / 2017 / 23’ / Dutch premiere

Director: Georges Schwizgebel animation / Switzerland / 2017 / 2’ / Dutch premiere

The Shadow of Utopia is the third part of Antoinette Zwirchmayr’s trilogy, which represents the spectacular events of a family history in a fascinatingly fragmentary and reduced form involving images and voices.

With his painting of the Battle of San Romano, Renaissance painter Paolo Uccello helped to develop linear perspective in art. This film focuses on this linear plane with a stream of new changes in perspective, discovers time in the visual space, and places emphasis on the small acts that result in a larger document of the times.

An ironic documentary film about the farewell to the phantoms of the USSR in Ukraine. The spiritual session with the ghost of Lenin guides us through our past, present and future. The film presents the dawn and the twilight of idols, and the curious afterlife of history’s ghosts. It is inspired by laws adopted in 2015 by the parliament of Ukraine which condemn the Soviet totalitarian regime and ban the use of Communist symbols.

In December 2011, a night watchman is killed by a pack of more than 20 stray dogs that were roaming the streets of Bosa, an area of Bogota’s suburbs. Around this tragic news item is built an animated short film on notions of body, savagery and territories.

On her way to the vet to have her dog put down, Sonja gets stuck in a traffic jam. In the car next to her sits a mysterious man who seems to know where she is going but has other plans for Sonja and her dog.

Old ladies prepare for an event. They are told how to walk, they wear numbers and try to succeed in the selection process. These women are Holocaust survivors. And the event is a beauty pageant.

An ugly cat struggles to coexist in a fragmented and broken world, eventually finding a soulmate in a mystical chief. Inspired by the internet story ‘Ugly the Cat’.

Seven year old Nina cannot be her aunt’s daughter. Nor can she be her father’s lover. In this world threatened by contamination, what then is Nina’s place?

Bernardino Fernandes emigrated to Canada in the sixties. Over two decades he filmed hundreds of super 8 reels, organizing them methodically and obsessively, always in silence. The Everlasting Man ends an old process, transforming Bernardino’s urge of cinema into a film about his life.

What’s it like working inside Sweden’s most hated agency, the Employment Agency? We’re meeting case workers, psychologists, bosses all portrayed by puppets inside a world of corrugated paper. This is a study of what happens when you just do what you’ve been told. Based on the book by author and Professor in Sociology, Roland Paulsen.

In Thierry’s living room, several people have gathered. None of them know each other but they are all there to try and fulfil the same dream. They want to find a job… And quickly.

The Disinherited is a portrait of the director’s father facing the end of his family business. Pere Ferrés is 53 years old and owns a small bus company. Lack of money forces him to drive clients who destroy his vehicle to bachelor parties, but he is not prepared to lose his dignity.

On the windy and cloudy beach, Granny is praying, Mum is shouting, the sisters don’t care, Lucas is alone. Grandpa was a weird guy, now he’s dead.

A middle-aged woman is about to get nightly visits from a young man. Her child is, as usual, in the way. This comedy is presented with a pang of sadness, as the ambivalence of parenthood is depicted in a rare and truthfully absurd way.

Kicked out roughly by her boyfriend, Olga, exhausted, takes shelter in the gritty flat of her son and his girlfriend. She finds herself trapped in her own torpor, infected by the intimacy of the young couple.

My dad taught me how to pack.

An elementary school class without a teacher, a contract signing with a giant football club and a new year’s eve party. Three tales tinged with aspiration and the desire to escape express a look into a youth absorbed by the power of dreams and the harshness of reality. A generation facing growth in tension with the future.

Mountain Plain Mountain was shot it in Obihiro, Japan, at the last standing venue to host a rare kind of draft horse races known as Ban’ei. Putting together a mix of motionless, contemplative shots and hard-edge, rhythmical, gibberish-rich montages, the slowness of these bizarre races is twisted to its limit. The overall timeline, thus, mimics the track’s topography poetically described by a veteran trainer as “a small and a big mountain.”

A rowboat starts to slide, the water slips along the hull. It is at night, around the stretch of water, the landscape gently begins to move, the wooded banks, the fields of long grass, the rocky cliffs. Everything moves, everything lives around us. The shooting team moves slowly and silently. Hunting can then begin...

Pedro has found a new job. A kind of strange one, but these days, he can’t afford to be fussy. It’s a real chance! Anyway, he’s never been the kind of getting cold feet...

A trip towards abstraction, as an hypothesis on how mountains might have been formed.

Ubi Sunt. Porto. Cartography of an imaginary place attracted by the margins (social and geographical). Hybrid and eclectic project, it is the outcome of an audio-visual research residency of human and urban exploration of an expanding city.

A grumpy man fully loads his car with oranges and starts his journey from the city to the seaside. The car radio only seems to be playing an endless discussion about media activism and “the society of spectacle“. Every image is only as innocent as its context of reception. But which kind of public and public sphere, which kind of images, language and narrations do we inhabit and use in order to wanting to change the world around us?

Água Mole Director: Camilo Restrepo art film / France / 2017 / 19’ / Dutch premiere

Director: Jorge Jácome fiction / Portugal / 2017 / 25’ / Dutch premiere

A man learns his daughter has been brutally murdered by her husband. Time stands still as he oscillates between the need for solace and his urge for revenge. A musical featuring Guinean percussion master, Mohamed Bangoura (“Red Devil”), loosely based on his own story.

In a natural crisis scenario, the entire population of Azores is forced to evict due to an uncontrolled plague of hydrangeas, a common flower in these islands. Two young soldiers, bound to the beauty of the landscape, guide us to the stories of sadness of those forced to leave and the inherent desire to resist by inhabiting the islands.

An unseen location scout explores an opal mining town in South Australia in this sci-fi-laced essay film, which finds in this semi-deserted region both the traces of indigenous culture and remnants of cinema history.

The last habitants of a village refuse to let themselves sink into oblivion. In a world where the idea of progress appears to be above all, this home floats.

This is the story of Copa-Loca, an abandoned Greek summer resort. Paulina is the girl at the heart of Copa-Loca. Everyone cares for her and she cares about everyone – in every possible way.

DUTCH COMPETITION The past year has been a good one for Dutch short films. A number of Dutch directors premiered their films at prestigious festivals, like Stefanie Kolk making her return to Locarno with Harbour, Stijn Bouma playing at Cannes Cinefondation with his Bosnian coproduction Lejla, and newcomer Sarah Veltmeyer’s Kiem Holijanda earning a spot at Berlinale Generation. Dutch directors seem to understand the short format better and better, but still we did not select that many national films in our international competitions this year. In some cases it felt like the directors could have been a bit bolder in their choices and taken more risks in what is possible within this limited timespan. As the overall quality was strong, it was hard to narrow it down to a selection of four programs this year. Some of the films not making the final selection have actually been doing very well 46

internationally. We do believe that the films we selected paint a strong picture of our short film scene and the diversity of films being made. With only three returning directors in this year’s selection, we are happy to welcome a lot of new voices to our competition. Hello Salaam and LISTEN are two of this year’s strongest youth documentaries, approaching their topics in a heartbreaking way. Mentia shows a third year film student with the guts to blend genres and create haunting images in hotel rooms, while the more classically haunting Sweet Tooth already paved the way for its director to Hollywood. We hope that you’ll enjoy our selection of Dutch short film voices. And perhaps we will see many of these shorts show up at other festivals this year as well.

Word! is a visual exploration of language and is set in a parallel post-factual universe. Quotes in the form of tweets by famous philosophers and writers appear throughout the film. Between the chirping of birds and the evocative urban scenarios that unfold, the viewer is invited on a seven-minute cinematic journey that interrogates our indissoluble relationship with words.

While on vacation with his girlfriend, Gijs receives a phone call from his mother, that reveals her troubled mental state and their complex relationship.

Sil (10) and Merlijn (11) are about to go on a big adventure: they will visit a refugee camp at Lesbos and stay there for a week. Through their mothers, who both work there, they have heard stories about the children that live there. Now they want to see for themselves. What is it like to live in a camp when you are a child?

Andi really wants a phone to watch 5 minutes of free porn, and doesn’t notice his brother is saying goodbye.

#YOLO4REAL follows Ahmed, a 21-year old man, who is being told he is terminally ill. After a phase of denial Ahmed starts to take action to escape this horrible truth. It is not until Ahmed can sink no further, that he realizes he needs to make the best of the time he has left. He decides to enjoy life, partly by crossing activities from his bucketlist.

Elin’s upstairs neighbours are getting on her nerves.

A voice in David Brown’s head left him with an ultimatum: kill his brother or jump from the fourth floor. David chose to plummet and, consequently, spends his life between countless psychiatric facilities. From an ultra-subjective perspective, Asylum depicts David’s hospitalisation and his attempts to climb out of his depression, with him using his musicality and enduring humor.

The old, lonely Otto prayed and waited for an answer his whole life. When a heavenly light flashes past his house, he uses what little energy he has left to find some peace.

Ton and Ineke Korrel enjoy their warm afternoon soup when a man crashes down from the sky, in their garden. Ton sees a dangerous species lying in his garden, Ineke wants to help. The situation escalates. The couple will soon find out who their other half really is. Hopefully before it’s too late.

YOUTH COMPETITION To give a voice to young people out there Go Short welcomes the MovieZone Jury. This jury is hosted in collaboration with MovieZone, which is the youth platform of EYE, the Dutch Film Institute in Amsterdam. They get to see a special selection of competition films of very different genres and styles. Youngsters aged 16 to 19 are paired up in this jury to voice their opinion about the films and ultimately pick a winner.

The jury hands out two awards: the MovieZone Award and the Nijmegen Youth Award, which is a cash prize supported by the city of Nijmegen. The MovieZone Award is an award created by the young winner of the expo part of Kunstbende, an art competition for youngsters in the Netherlands. The city of Nijmegen thinks it’s important to stimulate young people in their creativity and is proud to sponsor the cash prize.

It is the seventh year Go Short hosts a Youth jury and it always is inspiring to see the connection between the young filmmakers and the jury members. The winner of the MovieZone Award 2017 had been a jury member once himself, so he was a great example for the jury. It was wonderful to see the different generations interact with one another.

During their stay at Go Short the jury members get special workshops and Meet and Greets and watch the specially selected competition films. For the jury it’s a unique opportunity to get to know a film festival from the inside and take their first step into the film business. There is a lot of interest among jury members to go and work in the film industry when they grow up, so it’s a great way for them to get acquainted with this world.

INDEX YOUTH COMPETITION

You can recognize the jury by their vests, so don’t be afraid to talk to them or give them useful advice for the future! Hopefully, in 5 years, they will be the ones making the films in competition at Go Short.

STUDENT COMPETITION The future of filmmaking? The 21 films of our student competition are some of the best short films made in the past year. The label “student” always feels as if these films are not there yet, as if the directors are still perfecting their craft, but that’s something that this competition will definitely not show. Experiments are embraced and risks are taken. Some of them may still be working on their skills, but through rough editing you can already see the clear signs of directors that know what they want to tell. As a member of a selection committee, if you delve into the world of student films, you can eventually spot similarities between films from the same school. This helps us recognize both the cream of the crop and the directors that go against the grain. Every year we hope to discover some of these, so we can present them to our audience and give the filmmakers a platform to present themselves. 58

We are happy to present four world premieres in the program this year. In The Sisters we are taken behind the walls of a monastery and get a glimpse in the surprisingly funny life of nuns. The German Islands manages to tell a small coming-of-age story through very naturalistic long takes of a family visiting an island. Gibraltars shows a young woman who searches for a lost love while getting regular visits from a mysterious drone. In Letters To Adja we experience the story through the letters a girl writes to her sister accompanied by beautiful summer images of a beach town. Four great films that will already bring you in a summer mood in April!

Dust is a study of the way that every human body must go through from the moment of death to the funeral. In Jakub Radej’s film, the consecutive stages of the way (mortuary, morgue, cemetery) are juxtaposed with a bureaucratic approach to the property of the deceased.

Find Fix Finish delves into the accounts of three military drone pilots as they tell the intimate story of the lives they observe on a day-to-day basis. The voyeuristic ocular perspective from a military drone can reduce people to pixels on a screen and a certain decontextualisation is almost necessary to deal with the fact that people can be killed on a push of a button.

Paul is here. Like a step backwards, like an old memory that resurfaces and knocks at the door. Paul is here, and his annoying presence will disrupt Jeanne’s everyday life.

Summertime. A girl writes to her sister awaiting for her return.

It’s summer, a boy and his friends go to the river. On the ride there, a story is told about a man and his pet snake that tried to eat him. The boy falls from a tree trunk and gets hurt. A girl follows him. A couple kiss each other, another boy explores the woods and a third one just lays by a tree eating a peach. In four chapters, the heat and the humidity of the forest unravel desires among them.

FOCUS ON PATRIK EKLUND Patrik Eklund made his directional debut in 2002 with his short film One Christmas Morning. It was an instant success. The shorts that followed took it even further, as far as an Oscar nomination. Needless to say, we are very excited that this Swedish filmmaker is our guest in focus. One Christmas Morning won several awards including The Tromsö Palm for best Nordic short. Eklund’s short Situation Frank (2007) was selected for Critic’s Week in Cannes, Instead of Abracadabra (2008) won among others the award for Best Swedish Short at Göteborg International Film Festival and received an Oscar nomination for Best Short Film Live Action in 2009. His next short, Seeds of the Fall (2009), won the prize for Best Short Film at Cannes’ Critic’s Week. What could be the reason for all these awards? Maybe it is the dark sense of humour that characterizes Eklund’s work. 68

“My work is often very dialogue-driven with eccentric characters and set in a world where things are a little bit off.” Take Instead of Abracadabra, a film in which the protagonist wants to be a magician but where things do not always run according to plan. That the film was nominated for an Oscar took the filmmaker by surprise: “It was very unexpected being nominated for an Oscar. And besides that very fun and exciting, of course. I think it’s a good thing to have on your resume in the future when presenting new ideas to someone with money, as a reassurance of sorts. And it’s a great icebreaker at parties.” In 2011 Eklund made his first feature film Flicker, about people trying to find their place within modern society. However, as a short film festival we do not have to worry too much. The fact that he made a feature film does not mean that he stopped making shorts. In fact, his new short film The Infection will be released this year.

“It’s a very liberating playground where you can try new things and perfect your own voice as a filmmaker, without losing anyone’s money.” “My Oscar nomination is a great icebreaker at parties.”

According to Eklund, short films are equal to freedom: “It’s a very liberating playground where you can try new things and perfect your own voice as a filmmaker, without losing anyone’s money.” Inspiration for his films comes from different things. Ideas could flow from his writing process, but just as easily from photography or an overheard

conversation. Eklund rarely thinks of a specific topic when he starts writing: “I think the topic or your theme has a tendency to change over the period of writing, if you’re not basing it on a true story of course.” When we ask Eklund if he ever thinks about making a film in a completely

different genre, he reveals that if he had to try a new genre it would definitely be science fiction: “No aliens or lasers, just two characters alone on a spaceship going through an existential crisis and arguing about laundry.” Again: eccentric characters set in a world where things are a little bit off… 69

At dad’s birthday party Tomas gives his parents, the birthday guests and first and foremost the beautiful new neighbour Monica a bizarre magic show.

There’s something going on in the small town of Backberga. The town’s proud telecom company Unicom is just about to launch a new modern profile when they discover that there’s something lurking in the outskirts of Backberga. An accident triggers a power failure, which leads to a chain of events, mishaps and love stories.

A surrealistic film with input from Salvador Dalí. Director Luis Buñuel presents stark, surrealistic images including the slitting open of a woman’s eye and a dead horse being pulled along on top of a piano. A mysterious film open to interpretations ranging from deep to it all meaning absolutely nothing. It is certain that this short film presented something new in the cinema of its day.

2 Birds takes place during one bright summer night and follows a group of young teenagers on a journey from innocence to adulthood. The main character is a timid boy who has a typical schoolboy crush on a girl his age, who happens to be a friend of his mate.

In a funny looking yet very bleak world, a boy learns to play piano while a cat and various other animal characters encounter all sorts of drugs, sex, violence and profanity, with numerous references to pop culture phenomena.

A plain, ordinary man tells us about his work as a real-estate broker, his dead father, his ordinary home and so on in a naturalistic voice, lacking any emotions.

A luxurious villa and its grounds have become home to amorous, hungry and accident-prone frogs and toads. While they enjoy the bounties on offer, including caviar and macaroons, the amphibians uncover the whereabouts of the villa’s owner.

FOCUS ON EVA WEBER We are very proud to welcome Eva Weber as our guest in focus for the 10th edition of Go Short. Originally from Germany, Weber is a London-based director working in both documentary and fiction. Her multiaward winning film The Solitary Life of Cranes screened at the very first edition of Go Short in 2009; this year Eva Weber is back to present more of her short films. Weber started her career making several short fiction films before joining the BBC in 1998. While working as a director for BBC Broadcast, she directed numerous promotional videos, commercials and branded films for the BBC and other television and advertising companies. Although she loved her time at the BBC, after five years she felt the need to leave and pursue her own filmmaking again: “I missed the freedom of creating something that wasn’t restrained by marketing briefs and client restrictions; of taking risks and challenging myself to grow as an artist.” 74

Leaving the BBC seemed to be a good decision, since Weber has directed several award-winning short documentaries produced by Odd Girl Out Productions. According to her, short films can - at their best - be more challenging, refreshing and invigorating than feature films. They can give a platform to voices that are absent in the world of big-budget blockbusters. This is why she wants to use her films to transport people to places that they have never been to, both emotionally and geographically. “Whether you see the world through the eyes of crane drivers (The Solitary Life of Cranes) or eavesdrop on the intimate phone conversations of random strangers (The Intimacy of Strangers), each film will give you a unique insight into the world and the way we connect with each other.” Weber’s inspiration for films and themes come from very different sources. It can be an image, a couple of lines in a newspaper,

the paintings of Edward Hopper, the films of Werner Herzog or her hometown London. She is especially interested in exploring the conflict between intimacy and distance, of being removed but close, and in how we are shaped by the environments we live in.

“My films will take you on an immersive journey travelling from behind locked doors to high up in the sky.”

Weber has conducted a lot of long interviews and had to deal with huge logistical challenges in the process of making her films. Although this method is often lengthy and time-consuming, it is not why she prefers the short film format. “I believe that each film has the proper length; sometimes even a 10 minute film can be too long or too short. I have been privileged that I’ve had the opportunity and freedom to find the right duration for most of my films while making them, in particularly in the edit. I don’t want my films to overstay their welcome. So, it’s less about the ways these films were made, and the effort or logistical challenge they required, but more about whether the material lent itself to being feature-length.” Weber is currently developing a number of feature length projects, both through Odd Girl Out Productions and through other companies. One of these projects is

“I believe that each film has the proper length; sometimes even a 10 minute film can be too long or too short.” the fiction feature Let the Northern Lights Erase Your Name, based on the novel by Vendela Vida. While she spent most of the last ten years making documentaries, Weber actually started making fiction films. “Nowadays, I split my time between

both. I have no preference – or, to be more honest, whenever I make a documentary I wish I was working on a fiction film and vice versa. As the saying goes, the grass is always greener…” 75

You used to have to make an effort to overhear other people’s conversations, now you have to make an effort not to. The Intimacy of Strangers is a story of life, love, loss and hope - entirely constructed out of real, overheard mobile phone conversations of random strangers.

Part city symphony, part visual poem, the film explores the invisible life of a city, seen through the eyes of crane drivers.

A poetic study in movement and sound, this film takes you on a journey to the twilight expanses of the Lappish wilderness to experience the ancient practice of reindeer herding or ‘husbandry’.

A poetic portrait of life at a self storage warehouse, the film explores the fragmented nature of memories, set in the darkly beautiful aesthetic of our modern industrial world.

A poetic and evocative visual study, Skywards takes the viewer on a journey into the world of pigeon flying high above the bustling and crowded streets of Old Delhi.

Every day during exam season, as the sun sets over Conakry, Guinea, hundreds of school children begin a nightly pilgrimage to the airport, petrol stations and wealthy parts of the city, searching for light. This evocative documentary tells the story of these children’s inspiring struggle for education in the face of the country’s own fight for change.

A young, shy student on a field trip to postcommunist Poland who very abruptly comes of age when he makes the choice to withhold a truth.

Chris Cunningham’s audiovisual remix of Gil Scott-Heron’s New York is Killing Me.

It’s the Christmas season. The children leave with their dad, who’s affectionate with them. They walk down a railroad track where an unkempt woman waits with two children, about the same age as Lynne and Steven. The children go with them. They’re all headed to a holiday party at a pub. Lynne notices that the girl acts all too familiar with her dad. What’s going on?

Bodies as original accumulation, bodies as free inputs, bodies as corpses, bodies as love, bodies as yearning, bodies as registers of world.

FOCUS ON IRELAND The 2016 Academy Awards were proof of the recent rise of Ireland as a filmmaking nation with worldwide recognition. John Crowley’s Brooklyn and Lenny Abrahamson’s Room received a total of seven nominations and the Oscar for best live action short film went to Benjamin Cleary for his short film Stutterer, which is an admirable achievement for a country with less than 5 million inhabitants. It shows how creativity and ambition run in the blood of the Irish and that it's a country with high quality output and great artistic potential. Over the past decade we've seen many Irish shorts, many of which made it to our film selections. Irish shorts are characterised by their high artistic value and these are often widely appreciated (and awarded) audience favourites. That is why, this year, we present a retrospective of the wide range of films from the 'Emerald Isle' in this focus program on Irish shorts. 82

To emphasise the different characteristics of Irish shorts, we have curated three programs. Each of these programs focuses on a segment in the Irish short film industry at which it excels. These programs include a selection on home and heritage as its main theme, one that highlights the outstanding animation industry in Ireland, and a selection to celebrate the impressive amount of Oscar-nominated and award-winning shorts.

HOME SWEET HOME Some big and heavy topics dealt with in the public debate in Ireland - like religion and (mental) health issues - are reflected in many Irish short films. However, some of the most powerful and moving films we found are telling smaller stories that deal with family values and the sacredness of home. All films somehow evoke a feeling of identity or a strong bond with one’s heritage, whether it is coming back to life or slowly fading away.

a worldwide audience. In this program we aim to present the wide variety of animation styles mastered by the Irish, from hand-drawn craftsmanship to digital 3D animations.

GOING FOR GOLD As Irish filmmakers are so active on the international stage and have state funds available to assist them, this program is dedicated to those Irish short films that have gained recognition internationally and was nominated or even won an Oscar in the past. There were more films that fit this profile than we could squeeze into this program, so we made a selection of our favourite ones. These films are curated together with Derry O'Brien from Network Ireland Television.

A lost soul stumbles drunken through the city. In a park, Death finds him and shows him many things.

A black comedy exploring some of life’s common fears: fear of the unknown, of failure, rejection and finally the fear of death. Narrated by George Takei.

In a barren snowy landscape a man falls to the ground. Searching to continue his fall, he discovers other men. He joins them, hoping they will lead him to his destination. What he is led to, is incomprehensible.

A shipwrecked fisherman is led to a dark secret within this short thriller.

Meanwhile follows four characters traversing a city, each lost in their own separate worlds, trapped in their memories, regrets and frustrations. Meanwhile uses bold colour schemes and fragments of narratives to examine empathy in urban insularity.

A man follows the orders of a dog to wear a coat with impossible pockets.

Dougal is a small bird with a fear of flying. At night his dreams are plagued with a recurring nightmare of falling towards earth and by day he walks wherever he needs to go rather than face this fear. When a harsh winter rolls around, Dougal must head South, but how?

In rural Ireland old hand painted furniture is often associated with hard times, with poverty and with a time many would rather forget. Because of this association much of the country’s furniture heritage lies abandoned in barns and sheds.

Rats Island is spare and measured. It offers an observational account of how, in the face of personal and economic adversity, a father has made a home for himself and his son. It documents his efforts to survive in a social and geographic margin, as he tries to hold on to his family.

An elderly farmer’s life is devastated by the building of a motorway through his land. When his only remaining friend, his dog Shep, disappears, he exacts his revenge.

Having recently turned sixty, Ethel continues to be self-assured and happy with the way she looks. Her big bottom and round tummy are exposed to reveal a confidence that derives from her husband’s love and attention. Undressing My Mother is a story that is funny in nature but sad in reality.

When Damian is forced to serve as an altar boy at an important mass in his local parish he faces a difficult choice: conform to the status quo or serve an extended ban from his passion in life, football.

Old Fangs is a story about a young man in the shape of a small wolf (referred to as Wolf), being confused and frustrated about his childhood. He has very fond memories of his father and his very early life living isolated in the forest, with his whole family.

After stealing an old door, a man reflects on the desperate circumstances that led him to do so.

Granny O’Grimm, a seemingly sweet old lady, terrifies her little granddaughter at bedtime with her version of the Sleeping Beauty fairytale. In Granny’s retelling, the Elderly Fairy exacts her revenge on a society obsessed with youth and beauty when she is not invited to Beauty’s christening.

Frankie is fifteen and preparing for fatherhood. He’s determined he’s going to be the best dad ever, but as his day goes on, he starts to realise how impossible this will be for him.

Jamesy and Malachy are over the moon when their soft-hearted Dad presents them with two baby chicks to care for, but the two boys are in for a shock when their parents announce that big changes are coming to the family.

A man whose lush inner thoughts are rendered mute by a crippling stutter feels isolated from the world despite a flourishing online relationship. A lonely typographer with a cruel speech impediment, but an eloquent inner voice, must face his greatest fear.

EXPANDED CINEMA Virtual Reality is gaining more and more ground in the world of visual media. Headsets are becoming more easily available for consumers as they are improving in quality while also getting cheaper. Consecutively the number of high value VR and AR experiences is growing fast. The forms in which they appear range from apps on mobile phones for stand-alone headsets to more interactive devices, which are used for gaming and other room-scale experiences. Filmmakers of all sorts try out the new medium with great curiosity and ingenuity. One of the most famous experiences so far might well be Carne y Arena by acclaimed director Alejandro González Iñárritu. This immersive VR experience premiered in Cannes as the first VR project ever programmed at the festival. Apart from Cannes also Sundance, Venice and Tribeca now all have extensive VR selections in their programming. 90

CINEMATIC VR: FIRST LOOK

WED 11 - SUN 15 | MIR

This shows how VR has claimed its spot in the international festival circuit. The rules and conventions of telling stories on all the different extended reality platforms are still being explored, yet have already resulted in some very progressive films over the past few years. Go Short focuses on VR to show these recent innovative steps. These have been most interesting for film in the 360 video format, both narrative-wise and cinematically. Together with our equipment partners Samsung and VR House we present a VR Cinema in which we show two different programs with 360 films. This cinema is housed in the MIR, a pop-up exhibition space in the form of a big white dome placed on our festival ground. First Look presents a selection of four of the most eye-catching 360 films of the past year. It offers a diverse picture of how 360 film can be put to use to tell a story when

The rules and conventions of telling stories on all the different extended reality platforms are being explored... the action is all around you. World Views explores the ways in which VR can teleport you in space and time, immersing the viewer in experiences of fellow humans in several corners of the world. Next to cinematic VR we also present a program, curated by Manon Bovenkerk and Christoffer Olofsson (Uppsala International Short Film Festival), with "flat" films that trace the concept of Virtual Reality from the analog to the digital age. Together with Radboud Reflects we offer a philosophical approach to the perception of VR in a lecture on this theme.

In Potato Dreams, the mother and son discuss homophobia and Russian prisons, while we are free to explore the surrounding images. Turn around and you see four different tableaus, each with depictions of the prevailing melancholy, fear and pain. Or look up to discover that you’re in a box that’s being closed by a malevolent figure.

Heal Tomorrow is a VR experience which lets us follow the story of Naive New Beaters’ singer through his spectacular rise and unfortunate demise while debuting co-star Izia literally upstages him. A wacky VR music video featuring French pop band Naive New Beaters performing a song with debuting co-star Izia.

Alexandro volunteers for an experiment carried out to study dreams in this poetic trip into the future. He can’t imagine that he will be subjected to the intrusion of Elsa, a form of Artificial Intelligence who aims to digitize his subconscious in order to feed off of it.

Extravaganza mixes 3D animation and live-action footage in a bitingly funny satire. You are a puppet trapped in a stunningly offensive puppet show, performing for a clueless executive (Paul Scheer). Confronted with his obvious blind spots and prejudices, Extravaganza asks: can technology change society for the better, or does it just magnify our worst traits in new ways?

Inspired by conversations with real survivors of trafficking, the lead protagonists are played by a survivor and her father. The film touches on memory and trauma and how these can shape rather than define our lives. It is ultimately a story of survival and an ode toresilience and hope.

The refugee crisis has challenged Europe. Media coverage has been extensive but despite the many heart wrenching accounts there seems to be no broad social understanding of their plight. No talking heads or footage of wandering Africans, but a piece which places you in the position of a newly arrived asylum seeker cast a drift in a new world, not allowed to work, unsure if you will be allowed to stay.

The Sun Ladies VR experience is an in-depth look at the personal journey of the captain of the Sun Ladies, Xate Singali: from her roots as a famous singer in Kurdistan, through ISIS sex slavery, and to her new life as a soldier on the front lines as she starts a female-only Iraqi fighting unit called the Sun Ladies.

THE GHOST OF VIRTUAL REALITIES PAST

RADBOUD REFLECTS: HOW REAL IS VIRTUAL REALITY? VR FILM AND LECTURE WITH COGNITION PHILOSOPHER MARC SLORS

THU 12 – 17:30 – LUX 5

Inertia

Long before VR headgear provided us with immersive, three-dimensional environments, virtual realities existed in our imagination. Worlds made up by the brain and technology so convincing, it becomes impossible to distinguish emulation from reality. This program traces the concept of virtual reality from the analogue to the digital age. The focus lies not on the most technologically advanced VR experiences, but on the psychological bond between mind and machine, between what we can imagine and what we can make.

This program was part of a series of four

In the near future, can we still distinguish Virtual Reality from reality? In a clever way all of our senses cooperate with our brain to form a total image of our surroundings, something which, according to cognition philosopher Marc Slors, can’t be simulated in a virtual world. Listen to his lecture, immerse yourself in the VR film Alteration, and think about how real the virtual can feel.

He is not aware that the scientists will inject him with Elsa, an Artificial Intelligence which will digitize and take over his subconscious to help her turn into a human being.

ROLLERCOASTER RIDE

Marc Slors is cognition philosopher at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. He specialises in philosophy of neuro science, free will and our brain, social cognition and the relation between cognition and culture.

According to Slors perceiving is always an active state of body and mind. We generate a full image of reality by being conscious of our own body in its surroundings, and by simultaneously seeing, hearing and feeling. Our brain constantly interprets this information. A virtual rollercoaster ride may fool your eyes: it misses out on some crucial sensory and bodily experiences to be mistaken for the real. It is no more than the rollercoaster ride of a passive onlooker.

Immerse yourself in a virtual world and form an opinion about the real in virtual reality.

If you’re into edgy, crude humor (think South Park), then Weird, Out There and Over the Top Animation is your kind of show. No highbrow wit or über artsy shorts here, but a whole lot of old-fashioned thigh-slappery and belly laughs jam-packed in an endlessly entertaining collection of films that make your funny bone tingle (or scratch your head in puzzlement). So come on, treat yourself to this crazy, fun-filled ride — those thighs won’t slap themselves!

What happens if you combine short films and short stories? We picked three short films and resumed the films in one sentence. We gave this logline to three students Creative Writing at ArtEZ University of the Arts in Arnhem. These emerging writers wrote a short story based on this logline (without seeing the film). During Go Short vs Wintertuin, both the stories and the films will be presented. Which road did each maker choose?

On Thursday and Saturday, De Nieuwe Oost | Wintertuin will give you a peek behind the scenes of Go Short. Two Nijmegenbased writers host a talkshow and discuss the theme of the day, interview one of our visiting filmmakers and give an overview of the upcoming festival days.

Some films are hard to miss at festivals, as it feels like they were just everywhere. Winning prestigious awards and playing at the best festivals, then it has to be a great film, right? Right! For this program we curated four of these films, ranging from small personal stories to even a video game that's literally about everything! Films we didn't want our audience to miss out on.

Making a good comedy is one of the hardest things to achieve, curating a complete program with them maybe even more so. But we are again confident that we collected some of the funniest films from the past year, that will crack up our audiences. From seeing the humor in "serious" political discussions or in relationships that lost their spark to a fairytale on steroids and a bird on the loose. It will be hard not to laugh during these 70 minutes.

Filmmaker Beri Shalmashi curated a program with short films to be presented at Go Short and Movies That Matter. Shalmashi: ‘The short film format is an excellent form to point at problems in the world, where things don’t go as we wish, where the one life seems to worth more than the other, with no specific reason. The films in this program will carry you far away from here, without you needing to make a long journey. They proof how something could be told efficient, careful and accurate, and that even then the urgency of what is shown could be prominent.’

Every year the programmers of Go Short watch the most wonderful short films suitable for educational programs. They might end up in one of the school programs. But actually, even adults might learn a lot from these films and their narratives. About the world in general as well as about how children experience that world. In short, in this program you’ll find educational children’s films suitable for adults.

Meeting Point: Molenpoort Entrance: Ziekerstraat Ticket: € 10,-

During Go Short and until 22 April a special video installation will be presented at Galerie Bart (Honigcomplex, Nijmegen). For this installation the maker, Margo Onnes, was inspired by the famous song All Along the Watchtower by Bob Dylan. Dylan presents an apocalyptic vision of chaos and threat. Without being very explicit, he reflects upon the social unrest of his time in the song. Onnes translates Dylan’s vision to our time. The viewer will submerge in a flow of images with surreal logics and the intensity of a dream. Take a bike or go for a little walk and check it out! We would like to thank the following parties for making the installation available: Michael van Rosmalen, MTS Audiovisueel, TENT Rotterdam and Galerie Bart.

Something we are very proud of: Go Short Award winners in the categories Animation, Fiction and Documentary in the Dutch and European competition will become eligible for the Academy Awards.

GO SHORTY! & EDUCATION Go Short supports passion for film, also for the youngest film lovers among us. That's why we offer special programs for kids aged 4 and up to visit with their family or school. Go Shorty! is the kids department of Go Short. We already started in March with a local library tour. Here we show some of our favorite films from last year and offer insight in how film is made through a hands-on workshop. During the festival there are special activities for the whole family. On Saturday there will be a workshop in the library about telling stories in short film. On Sunday kids can visit the Family Shorts screenings for ages 4 and up and ages 10 and up. In these Family Shorts screenings families get a chance to see high-quality films, which are fun, moving and lovely and will give enough inspiration to talk about after their visit.

As part of the education program Go Short screens special programs for school classes. With these programs Go Short contributes to media literacy of youngsters out there and gives some reflection on this visually impressive world. Divided in different categories, for ages 6 to 9, ages 10 to 12 and ages 13 and up, the film programs are challenging, diverse, funny and touching. With the help of teaching materials, teachers can reflect on the films and their subjects at school and do a productive assignment with their pupils about these. The films are not only discussed because of their art value, but also act as a conversation starter. The subjects of the films provide teachers with enough material to have interesting discussions in the classroom.

FAMILY SHORTS 4+ SUN 15 – 14:45 – LUX 5

At every screening there is a filmmaker present to answer all the questions the curious kids may have. The young visitors of the school screenings get a chance to vote for the Kids Audience Award that is handed out on Sunday during the Family Shorts 10+ screening. Go Short also collaborates with schools in educational projects and offers teens the chance to organize their own film festival at LUX. These teens will get a unique look behind the scenes of the festival and get some firsthand work experience to help them discover what their talents are.

We offer a program for the youngest film lovers among us! In this program we’ve selected the best animations for them. It’s a program full of lovely, high quality films that will bring smiles on the faces of the youngest and their parents.

TALENT Finding talented young filmmakers and giving them the stage they deserve: that is what Go Short is all about. The programs and activities in this section of the festival are particularly geared towards that goal. We create networking opportunities for these talents, showcase their work, and give them inspiration and knowledge. By nurturing their talent we hope to see them grow in their profession, perhaps even giving them the means to return with work on future festivals.

GO AHEAD Most of the time only graduation films from students get to see the light of the film projector. Go Short is committed to change this however. During their studies, students get the assignment to make a lot of films so that they can discover their own signature in the process of filmmaking. Most of these never make it outside of the classrooms. That’s a shame, because some of these films made in the first, second or third year have a lot of international potential. 128

GO AHEAD SAT 14 - 12:45 - LUX 3

We at Go Short think that presenting your film to an international public is a big part of being a filmmaker. A film festival is a good opportunity to do so. In addition, it is a way to connect with other filmmakers who are a few steps further ahead in their career. That is why the student filmmakers of several Dutch academies will be present to tell you all about their process and give you a sneak peek behind the scenes of their film schools.

HOMEGROWN Talented filmmakers are everywhere, even in our hometown. We scout and cherish local talent and find it important to show their work in the context of an international film festival. For Homegrown we select films made by talents from the Nijmegen area and the province of Gelderland. In collaboration with film platform DZIGA and Gelders DOEK we invite these filmmakers for a platform meet-up with drinks, offering them an opportunity to share experiences and getting to know one another. With Gelders DOEK, a regional network of

filmmakers that hosts monthly screenings in the neighboring city of Arnhem, we also host an open screen event on Saturday.

AND MORE To students looking to bridge the gap between the film academy and a professional career, we offer the New Arrivals: Go Short Campus. A five day program of masterclasses and workshops by short film professionals for twenty students from all over Europe. Next to that, we are working together with NISI MASA offering young film lovers professional tutoring in writing film reviews, doing interviews and making festival reports. And for the first time this year, we have a MovieZone Talent Day: a day full of learning activities for the youngsters among us.

Paul Ruven and Tim Smit already had a discussion on this subject at the very first edition of Go Short. The short film What’s in the Box (2009) had just gone viral and Tim was suddenly in Hollywood negotiating a contract. The same thing is happening to Nico van den Brink, who is currently in talks to turn his short horror movie Sweet Tooth (2017) into a feature film. It’s a good occasion to invite them back for the 10th edition of Go Short. It is time for them to give advice to filmmakers who are on the same path. Paul Ruven addresses the 10 things you need to know when making a film, with all the successes and failures that come with it. Directly after we host an interview with Tim Smit

and Nico van den Brink about not just their experiences and ambitions, but also about the ups and downs of Hollywood. All three of them also have their roots in the Nijmegen region, which makes their background story, in the context of our Talents program, especially interesting for local filmmakers. Paul Ruven won a Gouden Kalf for his graduation film De Tranen van Maria Machita (1991) and has been a director and producer of numerous movies and documentaries ever since. He also wrote a number of books about the process of filming, including Het Geheim van Hollywood. Tim Smit debuted with viral hit What’s in the Box, a 9-minute post-apocalyptic VFX film. Its success led to him getting a contract to turn it into a feature film called Kill Switch (2017), which was in Dutch cinemas last year. Nico van den Brink’s short film Sweet Tooth (2017) has been selected for the Dutch Competition this year at Go Short; it is also part of horror program Friday the 13th. He is currently in talks with production company New Line to turn his short into a feature film.

Creative Film Centre DZIGA is a platform and workspace based in Nijmegen for filmmakers and video artists. DZIGA’s main goal is to support and facilitate the production of artistic films and documentaries from experienced filmmakers and young artists.

SAT 14 – 14:45 – LUX 3

SAT 14 - 10:00 - LUX 5

A new addition to our Talent program this year is the MovieZone Talent Day on the 14th of April. This event focuses on young talent with big ideas and ambitions in the film industry. During the Talent Day these young talents will have the opportunity to network and get a chance to discuss their film ideas with professionals. On top of that, they can get inspiration and know-how about the film industry through workshops and masterclasses. Making a film, from writing the script to editing the footage in only 48 hours, sounds like something impossible. Yet this is exactly the mission of the filmmakers who enter the 48 Hour Film Project. From April 6 to 8, the teams of scriptwriters, directors, actors and editors embark on this exciting challenge. How do they perform under pressure? Will the time pressure drive them to excellence? Find out during the premiere at Go Short. The winner of 48 Hour Film Project Nijmegen will advance to the global finals. In the light of Nijmegen European Green Capital 2018 the 48 Hour Film Project will be given a special green touch. The city of Nijmegen is hosting the award ceremony and will give out the award for the most sustainable produced film, a unique award special to this edition.

AWARD CEREMONY SAT 14 - 18:30 - CITY HALL NIJMEGEN 132

Gelders DOEK is thé place for local cinema. This initiative is carried out by the filmmakers themselves, mainly aiming to open people’s eyes to their direct environment. Each month they show their work in cinema and love to get the audience involved into making new productions. This leads to new collaborations and can contribute to connecting people from different backgrounds. At Go Short the works of regional film talents will be shown in a special program. All makers will be present to answer questions.

The MovieZone Talent Day is hosted in collaboration with the youth department of Eye Film Museum in Amsterdam. MovieZone was founded to give in-depth information about film for teens ages 12 to 21. They have an extensive online film platform and organize youth juries at film festivals, including Go Short. Their goal is to make sure young talents discover and develop their film ambitions. This coincides with the ambition of Go Short to support young talent.

talent in Nijmegen. During this day teens will meet other young aspiring filmmakers and get the chance to talk to professional filmmakers. One of the activities will be a meet-and-greet with Eva Weber, one of our two special guests. She will tell everything about her first steps in the film industry, share her do’s and don’ts and answer any questions participants may have about her work after a short viewing session. Special attention will be given to VR cinema. The youngsters can also make their own movies and get more hands-on practise during workshops. The day will end with a moment of feedback on their work and a chance to expand their network and make connections for new film projects. JUNKSKE

NISIMAZINE: FILM JOURNALISM WORKSHOP

NEW ARRIVALS: GO SHORT CAMPUS Since the very first edition of the festival, the Go Short Campus has been a meeting point for filmmakers who are about to make the leap from the academy to the professional world.

Next to that we will offer workshops on different subjects, such as: festival strategy and distribution international co-producing and pitching a film plan to an audience of producers and buyers.

The New Arrivals: Go Short Campus brings emerging filmmakers and seasoned film professionals together. It offers a unique and intensive program to 20 young film professionals from all over Europe. The campus focuses on giving hands-on knowledge about everything that becomes urgent as soon as students leave the academy. How do I pitch my (short) film? Where can I find an audience? How can I distribute my film? Questions that are hardly dealt with at the academy will now be foremost.

The participants are also asked to prepare and bring a film plan to work on during their days on the campus. Peer-to-peer and professional feedback will act as stepping stones towards their next short film. During the week the 20 participants will receive assignments and challenges, prompting them to mingle with other festival guests and expand their network. You might very well be part of their learning experience!

We offer masterclasses, lectures, workshops and panel discussions by the industry's top experts. This year masterclasses are given by our special guests Patrik Eklund (Sweden) and Eva Weber (Germany/UK).

When these campus students leave Nijmegen their portfolios will be filled with business plans, their address books with new contacts and their suitcases with the tools of the trade.

CAMPUS PARTICIPANTS Daniel Boocock – GB Ana Vidovic – HR Ana Jakimska – MK Lina Erzen – SI Tatiana Plevak – RU Dagmara Kucinska – PL Esmee van Loon – NL Hussen Ibraheem – LB Olga Medennikova – RU Sarah Vasen – NL Stefka Mancheva – BG Ivan Milosavljevic – RS Annabel Huijboom – NL Kevin Janssen – NL Bernadro Lopes – PT Joanne Rakotoarisoa – FR Eleni Molfeta – GR Matteo Palmas – IT Henry Disotuar – BE, CU Vincent van den Ouden – NL

WORKSHOP TEACHER: MICHAEL PATTISON

For over a decade now NISI MASA has developed a considerable experience in publishing a free daily gazette during some of the major film festivals in the world. The magazine is made in the frame of a film journalism workshop for young aspiring film journalists. Nisimazine film journalism workshops have taken place during many international events, including: Cannes Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, and Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, only to name a few. The workshop is designed for early-career film critics and journalists seeking to enhance their critical skills as well as their

134

knowledge of the day-to-day practicalities of writing at a film festival. During the workshop, participants will be expected to write a daily assignment, including reviews, interviews and festival reports. They will meet regularly as a group to discuss and think about the different ways of approaching film criticism as both a profession and as a creative practice.

Michael Pattison’s film criticism has been published by Sight & Sound, MUBI Notebook, Indiewire, RogerEbert.com and many other international publications. He is a regular attendee of film festivals and has tutored the FIPRESCI Warsaw Critics Project since 2015. He is a graduate of the Locarno Critics Academy and is part of the programming team at Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival. He is also a current PhD candidate in film practice at Newcastle University. In collaboration with NISI MASA and Bibliotheek Gelderland Zuid.

Within the particular context of Go Short, participants will also be encouraged to think about ways in which criticism can help shape a supportive and critical discourse around short films. Participants will have an opportunity to meet film135

INDUSTRY DAY: FRIDAY 13 / 10:30-17:00 Since it’s very beginning, Go Short has had a focus on the industry side of short films. This soon became the Industry Day: a day full of workshops, masterclasses, case studies and panel discussions on hot topics from the world of short film. This year the day touches subjects such as possibilities for short films online, production and distribution of VR films and the role of short film festivals.

DUTCH FUNDS 10.30-11.00 – LUX 7 – DUTCH SPOKEN

For the Dutch guests we offer a morning session where two different funds give a presentation on their work, the projects they support and the ideas they are looking for. Jolijn van Rees and Mirjam Bal of The Netherlands Film Fund will come to talk about the possibilities they offer for funding short films, especially about their support for finished short films. Willem Lenders of the Democracy and Media Foundation will talk about their objectives and the ways in which they support film and media projects that match their mission.

CASE STUDY: SHORT FILM ONLINE 11.00-11.30 – LUX 7 – ENGLISH SPOKEN

In this case study we invite a filmmaker who has had a successful or remarkable online run with a short film. We talk about the production and reception of the film and the set out strategy for online release. How did it manage to attract attention? To what extend was it intended? And what is the effect in the aftermath or in what way did it influence the filmmakers career? 138

PANEL TALK: ONLINE STRATEGY AND EFFECT 11.30-12.30 – LUX 7 – ENGLISH SPOKEN

Continuing the case study we ask a panel of different film professionals to discuss the strategy and effect of online short film. When is the best time to drop your film on the world wide web? How do you gain attention in the overwhelming abundance of online video content? And what platforms can best help you in doing so? We will talk to, among others, Meghan Oretsky, one of the five curators of Vimeo Staff Picks, and Derry O’Brien, sales agent at Network Ireland Television.

PROFESSIONAL SPEED DATES 12.45-13.45 – MIR

During lunch you will have the possibility to sit down with one of the ten professionals from the short film industry. Prepare your questions, because you will get only a few minutes to ask all you want to know to festival programmers, sales agents, producers, and staff members of several funding organisations.

PARALLEL SESSIONS In the afternoon you can choose to participate in two different sessions.

MASTERCLASS SCRIPTWRITING BY PATRIK EKLUND 14.00-15.00 – LUX 7 – ENGLISH SPOKEN

Patrik Eklund, special guest of Go Short 2018, will give a masterclass scriptwriting. Drawing from his own extensive experience of writing successful short films he will address some very im-

portant do’s and don’t’s of the scriptwriting process. This session kicks off with a short introduction by a few Dutch script coaches and a presentation on what a script coach can do for you. During the festival they will be available for private consultations on your script. This masterclass opens with a short presentation on what a script coach can do for young scriptwriters.

MASTERCLASS: ACADEMY AWARDS 14.00-15.00 – LUX 2 – ENGLISH SPOKEN

Since last year Go Short is officially an Oscar Qualifying festival. This means that Go Short winners in the categories fiction, documentary and animation in both the European and the Dutch competition are automatically running for the prestigious awards. A great stepping stone to fame and maybe even fortune, but it is not the only way to get in to the Academy Awards. Tom Oyer is awards manager for short film and documentary at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. He will talk about the different routes films and their makers can take to get qualified or nominated for the Oscars.

PANEL TALK: DISTRIBUTION AND EXHIBITION OF VR 14.00-15.00 – LUX 5 – ENGLISH SPOKEN

Virtual Reality has gained the interest of a wide variety of markets, and film festivals are no exception. VR is a lot, and film is one of them. The way ‘traditional’ film is being distributed and exhibited is quite institutionalized. But this is not the case for VR, yet. Therefore many film festivals experiment with incorporating VR in their programming. In this panel we talk with distributors, festival programmers, exhibitors and VR filmmakers.

PANEL TALK: FESTIVALS AS TALENT BUILDING – PLATFORMS 15.15-16.15 – LUX 7 – ENGLISH SPOKEN

Since Go Short celebrates its tenth birthday this year, it's a good time to reflect on what the past decade has brought us. And, more importantly, to what extend Go Short has helped those filmmakers we have seen emerge. In this panel with filmmakers for whom Go Short has been an important stepping stone in their career, we talk about the significance of short film festivals in general and how young filmmakers can benefit the most from selection, winning or just visiting. 139


PANEL TALK: NBF PRESENTS – CREATING WEB SERIES 15.15-16.15 – LUX 2 – ENGLISH SPOKEN

New distribution and technology has no effect on the core of any great film: great storytelling. The rules for well-told stories with great characters haven’t changed for thousands of years and won’t now. In an interactive panel discussion successful web series creators discuss their experiences and the lessons they learned. Using an overview of recent web series worldwide you get an idea where to start and develop your own series to stand a chance in this new and soon competitive market. Dutch actor Pepijn Schoneveld will be one of the panellists.

DUTCH SHORT FILM PREVIEW SAT 14 - 12:30 - LUX 2

At Go Short we aim to be the go-to platform for young and promising Dutch filmmakers. We show the best films from the past year in our competitions, focus on Dutch film students, and screen films of local talents. But we want to do more. That's why, during Go Short, we host the Dutch Short Film Preview. During this session a selection of both upcoming and celebrated Dutch filmmakers will give a preview of their latest short film - before these films have their official international premiere. Festival programmers, distributors and buyers will receive an exclusive invite to attend this preview and get a unique opportunity to be among the very first to see these films and chat with the filmmakers afterwards, during a special lunch. With this preview program we aim to strengthen the position of Dutch short films and enhance the chances of these particular projects to get selected on international film festivals.

DUTCH PLATFORM Another way in which we promote Dutch short filmmaking is through the Dutch Platform. This has become a regular feature in our video library over the past few years. Here you can see all the Dutch film submissions that Go Short received for the current edition, a total of 300 films. For a better overview we divided these films in different categories, so you can easily find what you are looking for. This way Go Short functions as a gateway to all recent Dutch shorts for our visiting film professionals.
