Go Short - Sounds Around
Go Short is the only Dutch festival exclusively for short film. In five days, 300 short films are screened and film professionals from all over Europe gather in Nijmegen.

In these short films music is everywhere: it is in your ears and in your eyes. Music is the land you travel through and the house you live in. It is the soundtrack of break ups and make ups, of youth and old age. Image, story and sound merge, diverge and intermingle in Sounds Around.
