After its third successive and successful edition in Nijmegen, Go Short International Film Festival is packing its bags and going on tour across the country. Their last stop is Amsterdam where they will settle down for a night at De Balie. They’ve brought over 15 short films with them which will be shown in three blocks of 1.5 hours. With a selection of the best from animation, documentary and fiction from the 280 short films that were shown in Nijmegen, you can expect a quality show!
