Leiden Shorts: New Beginnings

Leiden Shorts: 9-12 June 2022!




Sometimes we can forget how important it is to be helpful and respectful to our loved ones. Simultaneously we will never be ready for the hardest moments. In the session «New Beginnings» films recall how relatives can be close and distant at the same time, how essential it is to take care of one another, and how sacrificial love can be.

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.
