Wild Horses (2017) won the Nijmegen Youth Award last april at our festival. We spoke on the phone with Rory Alexander Stewart, the director of Wild Horses (2017), about his experience at Go Short International Short Film Festival, what sparked him to make Wild Horses (2017), horses and his admiration for Emma Curtis, who played the lead role in Wild Horses (2017).

10 years, 2 weeks! We are getting closer and closer to our festival. Every year at Go Short we have aside from a filmmaker in focus, one or multiple countries in focus as well. Last year our country in focus was Spain and one of these Spanish programmed films called Duck Crossing (2010) is this week’s focus. A documentary or should I say mockumentary about one type of actor in the movies that is often overlooked, the duck!
10 years, 5 weeks! 5 weeks left to our festival and we will celebrate our 10 year jubilee with special blog posts in the next weeks. Outside of our competition programs we put every year one or multiple filmmakers in focus. In 2012 our filmmaker in focus was the British Daniel Mulloy. This week we’ll take a look at one of his films: Antonio’s Breakfast.
