Leiden Shorts: Wet Stories
- Kijkwijzer 16
Leiden Shorts: 9-12 June 2022!
What happened by the water? The films in this session are all set by bodies of water, where stories flow, sea monsters emerge, the heat rises, and characters allow the tide to take them. Hybrid in genre and style, this session is filled with shorts that might submerge you, refresh you, and potentially, drag you under.
Trigger warning: sex, sexual violence.
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.
