Open call: Buma Music in Motion

Together with Buma Music in Motion, we are organizing a matchmaking between composers and directors. Buma Music in Motion believes that all music plays a critical role, especially in film. That’s why we work with directors, editors and media composers.

Do you dream of composing for Short Film? This is your chance! Attend Go Short, the short film festival in The Netherlands from March 31 to April 10, 2023. During the festival, you will see the best and latest European short films, and the Go Short Awards are given to the best of the best.

In addition to the competitions, Go Short offers an extensive program, including this year a new collaboration with Buma Music in Motion. As a music talent, you can sign up for a matchmaking session with an established director of short films. Pitch your ideas and ask all your questions while growing your network. Check here which directors are present and let your preferences know during registration. There is limited space for composers, so don’t wait too long to register. Composers from the province Gelderland will get an advantage with this call!

The fifteenth edition of Go Short will take place from March 31 to April 10, 2023 in LUX and various locations in Nijmegen.
