Streaming films

I'm having trouble loading the films. What can I do?

We use Vimeo to show the films. It may be that the films do not load quickly or that they have to buffer midway through. This often has to do with the quality of the streaming and the internet speed. Try to lower the quality of the stream to 720p. Do you keep having trouble loading the films? More information can be found here.

Can I stream the films to my tv?

Yes, that’s possible with an online connection. For example via Chromecast or AirPlay. You do have to stream every film to your TV individually. Note: do you stream via your phone? Then make sure that your iPhone or Android phone is fully up to date with the latest software.

Statement cancellation Go Short 2020

On March 13 2020 we have made the difficult, inevitable decision to cancel the 12th edition of Go Short – International Short Film Festival Nijmegen, scheduled for 1-5 April.

On March 12 2020, the Dutch government announced new measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, which included a ban for all events exceeding 100 people until 31 March.

In order to proceed safely and responsibly, we couldn’t wait for new developments; we must act now. The health of our community is our first priority. We don’t consider it safe for our audiences, partners and employees to organise a public event in this global state of emergency.
