Leiden Shorts: States of Mind

Leiden Shorts: 9-12 June 2022!
We may all live in the same world, but we all experience it differently. Our own personal stories, hopes and fears distort our perception of reality. These films navigate how the real and the imagined intersect in the labyrinthine paths of the human psyche and are often coloured by one’s subjective experience.
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.
