”Employees of Go Short understand what works with our students. They program engaging, fun, quality films that are focused on educational goals. They show remarkable flexibility, a huge amount of enthusiasm and have a passion for film which they bring across to every visitor.”
– An elementary school teacher who attended a film program.
The programs consist out of short documentaries, animation and fiction and these programs are accurately put together. In order to reach the target audience, Go Short has devided the programs in 2022 into two themes: Heroes (Elementary School, ages 7-10) and don’t give up (Elementary School, ages 10-12). There’s always the possibility to work out fitting programs that connect certain customized themes.
Go Short creates courses that fit the school programs and there’s always a crew member present of one of the films (director, actor or cameraman/-woman) to speak with students. This conversation is moderated by a professional who makes sure the information connects to the ages of the children in the audience.
The diverse program of Go Short offers young adults broad knowledge and Go Short educates them about moving images. In 2022, the theme for high school students is ‘Inequality’. In the screening room, a professional is present to answer the questions of the students. There’s always the possibility to work out fitting programs that connect certain customized themes.
