We are stronger together
The film industry is being hit hard worldwide. Many events have been postponed or canceled due to the current COVID-19 situation spreading around the world. Similarly, the 12th edition of Go Short has been canceled. But also the Glasgow Short Film Festival, Short Waves Festival in Poland and Canada’s Festival Regard and events such as CPH: DOX in Copenhagen, SXSW in Texas, Tribeca in New York and Vision du Reel in Nyon.
Together we are looking for alternatives in this day and age where people have to stay at home. Worldwide film festivals from which this initiative has flourished unite. Programmers from Cannes, Berlin, Venice, Locarno, Black Nights and Go Short, among others, unite and make films available. Hosted on the Talking Shorts platform, this festival helps raise money for those fighting COVID-19 and for the events and people disadvantaged by the current situation.
The My Darling Quarantine Short Film Festival has enlisted the help of film professionals from all over the world to collect films with a dystopian theme. Go Short is the first Dutch film festival to make short films available.
Every week, Monday through Sunday, the festival presents a program of seven short films, which you can watch online for free. Then you vote for your favorite movie and you can make a donation. 50% of the donated money is donated to MSF (Doctors Without Borders), the globally operating health organization. The other 50% will go to charity focusing on cultural institutions and cultural workers who are affected and who will face organizational and financial challenges in the coming months and even years.
