Twenty students and newly graduates are given the opportunity to participate in an interesting campus program during Go Short – International Short Film Festival Nijmegen.

New Arrivals: Go Short Campus
The New Arrivals: Go Short Campus brings emerging filmmakers and seasoned film professionals together and offers a unique program with a focus on filling the gap between leaving the academy and stepping into the world of professional filmmaking. The program contains master classes, lectures, workshops and panel discussions by renowned names of the film industry. Adrian Sitaru and Konstantina Kotzamani will coach the campus students.
Romanian Adrian Sitaru (1971) lives and works in Bucharest. After finishing his study in computer science, Sitaru graduated in 2003 at the film academy. In 2007, his short film, Waves brought him the Golden Leopard of Tomorrow in the Locarno Film Festival. But Sitaru does not only focus solely on short films, his debut long feature film Hooked premiered at the Venice Days Film Festival in 2008. Since then, his films gathered international recognition from festivals such as Chicago, Sundance, Berlinale and Sarajevo.
Just like Adrian Sitaru, Konstantina Kotzamani (1983) didn’t initially start as a film producer. She first studied Pharmacy at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki but quickly switched and finished Cinema at the Department of Fine Arts. She only just graduated but already participated as a director at the Berlin and Sarajevo Talent Campuses. Her shorts have been selected to several international film festivals and won numerous awards. For instance her film Washingtonia, which was shown at Go Short 2015 and is nominated for the European Film Academy Short Film Award 2015.
