Happiness: A Hopeful Journey to a Euphoric Disaster
The focus on happiness is big and sometimes seems to be obsessive. Everything is supposed to be fun, we should be the best version of ourselves and there is little space for failure. How do you handle failure? Does the digital hunt for love create happiness? And what are the alternative ways towards happiness? We are trying to find an answer with funny, moving and striking shorts.

Out of Competition
Young filmmakers are full of ambition and great ideas. Go Short gives them the opportunity to be visible at an international filmfestival. Homegrown and Gelders DOEK shows you talent from our region. Go Ahead introduces you to talent from Dutch film academies. And Go Short offers a platform to young writers so they can write a story in Great Short Stories.
ArtEZ x Go Short: Great Short Stories
In the 48 Hour Film Project teams accept the challenge. They create a short film in the weekend before the start of Go Short. During the festival we see the results. Off The Walls takes you for a walk through Nijmegen where walls are being transformed into cinema screens.
