Short films at the Academy Awards® 2013 is the focus of the latest issue Go Social Film, a digital, multimedia monthly film magazine for the iPad. Featuring exclusive interviews with nine of the fifteen short film nominees, the issue represents unprecedented post-Oscar® coverage of the short film competitions.

“The idea was born the night of the Oscars. We found ourselves moved not only by the short films in competition and the stories they told, but by the stories of the filmmakers, producers, actors and writers whose dreams were coming true that evening. This issue is our celebration of those stories,” Jason Rogan, Artistic Director, Go Social Film Magazine

In this special issue, readers will find fascinating conversations with exceptionally brilliant filmmakers about the production of their films and the road to the Academy Awards®. Among those interviewed are Shawn Christensen, Director of “Curfew”, Winner Best Live Action Short Film, and Albie Hecht, Producer of “Inocente”, Winner Best Documentary Short Film.

Across the three short film competition categories, Live Action, Animation, and Documentary, many feel that 2013 was an outstanding year for short film Academy Award® nominations.
