Internationally renowned filmmakers guest at 11th edition of Go Short
The promising filmmakers Jacqueline Lentzou and Bálint Kenyeres are coming to Go Short – International Short Film Festival Nijmegen. Both filmmakers are seen as rising stars and have received several international awards for their films. Jacqueline Lentzou won the award for most promising film talent in Cannes last May and Bálint Kenyeres was selected for the competition of the Locarno Film Festival. Go Short, the festival that takes place from the 3rd until the 7th of April showcases their best short films and the films that inspired them.
The annual film festival in Nijmegen supports young and upcoming filmmakers by giving them the opportunity to present themselves to a big audience. This is exactly why Jacqueline Lentzou is one of the filmmakers in focus. Jacqueline’s graduation film project was selected for the shortlist of the Academy Awards. Her second film Fox (2016) was seen at Go Short 2017 and won seventeen awards worldwide, among which the Ingmar Bergman-award. In the meantime the talented 29-year-old has won seven awards for her short films, among her latest – Hector Malot: The Last Day of the Year (2018) – which won the prestigious Leica Cine Discovery Prize.
The debut film of Go Shorts second guest, Bálint Kenyeres, premiered at the Venice Film Festival and then was shown at more than thirty different film festivals. His following short film ‘Before Dawn’ (2005) was nominated for a Golden Palm in Cannes, won the Jury Award in at Sundance Film Festival, and won the award for Best Short Film at The European Film Awards. Go Short showcases the best short films made by Kenyeres and Lentzou and they will both be receiving a carte blanche, which allows them to show the public their favourite short films. The filmmakers will be at the event in April to introduce themselves to the public, to talk about their films and to pass their knowledge on to the students of the Go Short Campus.
Soon you will be able to find the extended profile for both film makers. Mid February the complete program will be available. In March the ticket sales will start for the 11th of edition of Go Short.
