Winners Go Short 2010

Go Short-ambassador Isolda Hallensleben was the host of the Award Show and she did it in a funny and vigorous way. A video showed a nice overview of the past days of the festival. The members of the jury were presented and then it was time to start handing over the Awards.

An international festival, with English as official language, with some switches to Dutch. For instance, when Joost van Ginkel received his Award for Best Dutch Short Film. After his word of thanks, the screen showed an interview with his young main actor Koen. The NPS is the sponsor for four Awards: fiction, documentary, animation, the labo. The winning directors from Animation (Igor Imhoff) and Documentary (Carol Salter) were not there, but their words of thanks were recorded and played back. Carol told us she was going to use the prize money to pay for the education for one of the boys from her documentary about Uganda. Martijn Veldhoen (RE-constructions) received his award for The Labo and said that it was special to stand there with an award, considering that three hours ago he was lying on his couch with a hangover from his birthday.

One of the awards was presented by Go Short's special guest: Simon Ellis. He said that is was very special to show so many of his movies altogether during his own screening, it felt a bit like he was standing naked in front of the viewers. At the award show his short Freya was screened. Singer-songwriter Arthur Adam performed with two of his songs. Andreas Koefoed was seen on a video message that he made himself from his resort earlier that day, he won the Dioraphte stimulation price for best European short student film.

acco's Film was the winner of the Audience Award. Director Daan Bakker received his award thankfully and -with one eye on the Omroep Gelderland-camera- he thanked his parents who live in the province Gelderland.
