How to Go Short

More than 300 films in five festival days! Competitions, filmmakers in focus, Comedy Shorts and Late Night programs. Where to start? We’d love to help you choose and explain how you visit Go Short.


We have already made the first choice, by bundling short films into screenings. You don’t buy a ticket per film but per screening. Films are placed into screenings because they work well together, they strengthen each other or they create contrast for each other. In most screenings, there will be a mix of genres, short documentaries, animations fictions, and art films. The titles given to the screenings will give you an impression of what to expect.

A diverse and rich program

We did the first selection, but still, there’s a lot to choose from! Are you going to visit a competition screening with the best recent shorts, going to experience a 360 degrees VR-film or planning to visit Late Night programs? Whatever your choice may be, you will see films full of talent, great ideas, and importance. Dive in and be amazed by unique stories in our varied program! The full program can be here.

Choosing & filtering

You can look at a program per day in the Program overview. Filters can help you make a choice. With the help of the program filter it’s possible to search for specific sub-programs, for example the competitions and focus programs. You can collect the screenings you find interesting in My Timetable, this way you can make your very own festival program.

Buy tickets for a screening or take a Shortcut!

You buy a ticket for a screening, just like a regular visit to the cinema. You can buy tickets and passes online or at the LUX ticket desk. Planning to visit more screenings? Take a Shortcut and visit 3 programs of your choice for only €25!

Shortcut? How can I buy one?

You buy your Shortcut ticket online and choose three programs of your choice. The Shortcut is connected to your account. Unfortunately, you can’t connect more Shortcuts to your account. During the festival, you can buy an offline Shortcut at the LUX ticket desk. At the ticket desk, you get three tickets for the programs of your choice in return. You can buy the ‘offline’ Shortcut as many times as you like!


Because we are an international film festival, all films will be in English or will be subtitled in English.

Let’s mingle

Go Short stands for connections. A lot of filmmakers and professionals are present at the festival. During the programs there are Q&A’s in which filmmakers tell us about their films and will answer all your questions! We also stimulate visitors and professionals to get in touch at the rest of the festival. In and around the festival pavilion there is always something happening and during the parties you can hit the dance floor!
