Information and tickets

Join us for a short film session exploring the environmental, social, and subjective effects of analogue, digital, and (un)intelligent technologies, presented in partnership with Days of Art & Science.

This screening is in English.

As technology advances, so does its influence on our lives. From digital filmmaking to social media, VR environments for rehabilitation, and AI algorithms making decisions for us, technology surrounds us. With an increasing pace, these new developments weave their way into our current reality, claiming to enhance the quality of our lives, but at what cost? 

Leiden Shorts international film festival is back for a retrospective edition with a selection of 50 films, including some of the best short films the festival has screened since its foundation in 2009. Between September 14-16, 2023, you will be able to rediscover the festival’s historical programmes in our film sessions at Kijkhuis with top festival selections from Cannes, Sundance, IDFA, and more.
