Tickets & Venues



Thanks to the generous help of Bioscopen Leiden, this year’s short film festival will be able to bring the wealth and breadth of contemporary international film to a cinema near you. Tiny, just like our films, Kijkhuis on Vrouwenkerksteeg offers the space for coming together in an intimate and familial atmosphere. Most importantly, we hope to utilise this venue as a space for open debate and mutual dialogue around the films shown and the issues they raise. Essentially, in order to enable this conversation to unfold, we need you, the viewer, to join us. We’ll keep the seat warm for you!


In order to allow this dialogue to spill out of the cinema, we will make use of the cultural space of Old School on Pieterskerkhof. With a history of hosting and promoting vanguard artists and performers, we know that Old School will be the optimal space for LISFE to explore some of its more experimental programming. Here, you will be invited to partake in  screenings and talks, coming together as a community around cinema and the visual arts. Get inspired…

Klein Auditorium – RAPENBURG 73

In the Klein Auditorium of  Leiden University’s Academiegebouw, LISFE will host in collaboration with Leiden University’s Studium Generale and the City of Leiden Rembrandt and Film: A Talk by Peter Greenaway.


As always we try to offer you as many options as possible to access our festival! We hope there is something for every budget, from single screenings tickets to day and festival passes.

A Single Session Ticket gives you access to one screening. For each screening we curated a thematic session which brings together 3 to 6 films, depending on films’ length. On the page of each session you will find the link to purchase your ticket.

The screenings of the Student Competition and of the General Competition on Friday 10th are longer session and hence a difference in price.
