Film & Science

The Leiden International Film Festival (LIFF) has made a name for itself at home and abroad. Ten days packed with premières, special film events, parties and more. The programme includes over 100 films each year, varying from arthouse to mainstream (and everything in between). This year, LIFF and Leiden University have joined forces, and to celebrate Leiden University’s 444th anniversary, they have come up with a special ‘Science & Cinema’ programme comprising 4 films at 4 locations on 4 evenings, for the special price of €4.44!
