A few weeks ago we posted a blog about Wild Horses (2017), that was part of our Student Competition at Go Short last april. This week The Hunger (2017) is our Short Shot, a short that was part of Go Short last edition as well, being selected for the European Competition.

This week in Short Shot, we take a look at a French-American short film called The Strange Ones (2011). In 2011 this short film received a lot of attention from multiple film festivals like Sundance and the SXSW. It was also screened in the European Competition on Go Short in 2012. A feature adaptation with the same name was released last year.
World of Glory (1991) was shown as part of both Eva’s Choice program and Patrik’s Choice program in the past edition of Go Short. During most of this short film, 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. That doesn’t mean the film only represents ordinary events.
Today is World Refugee Day. Needless to say that it is a very important day: the number of people fleeing war, violence and persecution has never been so high. The short A Man Falls from the Sky touches the fear that exists around refugees and makes you think about your own behavior. For example, what would you do if a man falls from the sky?
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).
What would you do if you were literally losing your father day by day, when he literally becomes less and less of himself and gets more and more out of control? When is the time to literally let go of your father? And when exactly is it too late? Those are the questions posed in this week’s Short Shot, the post-apocalyptic short film Flesh and Blood (2016).
