Each month readers will be treated to a variety of short films from filmmakers around the world, and will also be taken behind the scenes to meet the filmmakers and learn about the production of their films through exclusive interviews, unseen footage, and interactive multimedia articles.
According to the company, Go Social Film Magazine’s mission is to seek out talented international filmmakers with unique and compelling short films, and bring them to a global audience via the iPad.

“Too often short filmmakers are under recognized and their films don’t get the exposure that they deserve. We’ve created this great cutting edge distribution platform to benefit these filmmakers as well as film lovers,“ said Nadzeya Huselnikava, CEO/ co-founder of GSFM Go Social LLC.
Go Social Film Magazine also includes social media connections for Facebook and Twitter, allowing subscribers to communicate with the featured filmmakers from within the magazine, bringing filmmakers and their fans closer together.
The Go Social Film Magazine App is available for free download in the iTunes Store.
