The International Competition consists of shorts from all genres that have been made in Europe. The films are eligible for the Go Short award for the best short in four different categories: animation, documentary, fiction and art film. The National Competition is a selection of 20 films made in the Netherlands, from which the best film is awarded with the Go Short award for best Dutch short. All selected films are also in the running for the Audience Award.
Breaking Shorts: Student Competition
The Breaking Shorts Student Competition consists of short films from all genres, made in European film schools. The best film is awarded with an Encouragement Award, and all films are eligible for the Audience Award. This year we will be handling the student submissions ourselves, so you can send them directly to Go Short.
