Leiden Shorts 2022


We are back with our 14th edition between the 9th and the 12th of June with screenings at Kijkhuis and events around the city of Leiden. After reviewing more than 1100 films that were submitted, from more than 80 countries, our programmers have curated a program for everyone and every taste with 16 sessions for the main programme with a total of 94 movies from more than 50 countries. We have collaborated with the talented illustrator MarĂ­a Medem (@mariamedem).

Leiden Shorts is not only short film screenings, side by side with some of our sessions, we are organizing workshops, panel discussions, in-depth programmes and parties. We like to be an active part of life in the city of Leiden and to function as a bridge between topics and communities. For our 2022 edition, we have collaborated with Leiden City of Science 2022 to create 3 film sessions with a scientific topic as their common denominator, as well as in-depth programmes, workshops and a panel discussion. We are working with our programme partners De Animatiebus and the Institute for Sound and Vision to offer activities for every taste and age.
