Leiden Shorts: 9-12 June 2022!




Nights carry a myriad of possibilities: to come together or embrace solitude, to put one’s thoughts to rest or be kept wide awake. Its darkness obscures the edges of the familiar and allows space for night owls to exercise their imagination and expose their most private fears, struggles and fantasies. The films in this session explore the rich dynamic between the dangers and promises of the night, touching on hope, coming of age, trauma, and grief.

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.
