Open call: Buma Music in Motion

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

If you dream of composing for a short film, this is your chance! Come to Go Short, the short film festival of the Netherlands from 3 April to 7 April 2024. During the festival, you will see the best and newest European short films and the Go Short Awards will be presented to the best of the best.

In addition to the competitions, Go Short offers an extensive program, including, for the second time, a

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. There is limited space for composers, so don’t wait too long to sign up. Composers from the province of Gelderland are at an advantage with this call!

“The previous Go Short matchmaking ensured that I made nice new contacts. During the speed dates you get to talk to other industry professionals who you normally don’t get to speak to so quickly, so it’s great that BMIM facilitates this Go Short(cut) for its composers!”
