Leiden Shorts: 9-12 June 2022!




This section takes us on a marvellous visual journey into the present and future, exploring the relationship between human beings and technology. How has technology shaped our understanding of the world around us, how has social media interfered with our daily life, and what are the meanings behind our technological usages? These thought-provoking shorts, hybrid in genre, help us individually reach a conclusion as to whether technology is ultimately with or without, for or against us.

Trigger warning: flickering lights.

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.
