Film Competition ‘Student & City’ 2019

What makes Leiden the nicest student city in the Netherlands? Together with Leiden Marketing, the Municipality of Leiden and Leiden University we are looking for the answer. This year the fourth edition of the Film Competition ‘Student and City’ will take place, in which students and former students from both the University and the Hogeschool get the chance to show their vision of student city Leiden by means of a video. This is not only fun to do, you can also win money with it!

Until the 20th of June 2019, students can submit their film about Leiden as a student city. New this year is the theme ‘Leiden Inside Out’: Can you show us yóúr very own Leiden and thus let the human experience and aspect play a major role in your video? Do you have tremendously creative ideas how to connect student and city by means of a movie?

A professional jury finally determines which videos are shown during the final on the 3rd of July in Cinema Trianon. At the end of the evening, the winner will receive a check of €1250 euros. For the second and third place there is also a cash prize of resp. €500 and €250 euros. Then this video is used everywhere to show everyone why Leiden is the best student city in the Netherlands!
