Leiden Shorts: Lost and Found
- Kijkwijzer 16
Leiden Shorts: 9-12 June 2022!
Despite living in a world filled by billions, we cannot help but feel alone at times. The ability to express and understand one’s own emotions and to form honest and meaningful connections with others is a lifelong endeavour. The films in this session provide an intimate and immersive look into the emotions contained in each character and invites the audience to empathise and understand them through their point of view.
Trigger warning: nudity.
Leiden Shorts is the second short film festival in the Netherlands. Over the last 13 years, it has grown into a broad and high-quality festival. Every year, Leiden Shorts receives over 1200 submissions from over 70 countries around the world. We curate different side events – such as lectures, workshops and events – and thematic programs every year alongside our selection of short films from any genre. The 14th edition will take place 9-12 June 2022 in Kijkhuis, Leiden.
We believe in cinema as a tool for social change, and we want to become an outspoken figure in both Leiden and Netherlands’ cultural scene. We fully embrace diversity and inclusivity, not only in culture but also in discipline, medium and expression.
