It can happen to the best of us: you come home from a weekend away and your boyfriend, frustrated artist Dave (Thune), tells you that he's stuck in his self-made cardboard maze. It befalls Annie (Kumbhani), who sets aside her disbelief and enters the maze along with some acquaintances for a rescue mission, which comes with serious consequences... You do

The lives of two different women are slowly becoming entangled in this beautiful drama by Matthew Netwon (From Nowhere). A phenomenal portrayal by Julianna Nicholson of an ex-con who is trying to get on the right path and the ambitious lawyer (Roberts) who helps her fight for custody of her son.

You’ll be the first to discover all of your friends’ favorite directors, right here at LIFF. Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World) won the LIFF competition back in 2012 with Safety not Guaranteed. Ryan Coogler reanimated the Rocky-franchise with Creed a year after LIFF played his debut Fruitvale Station. Actor John Boyega had his big break in Leiden with Imperial Dreams – a year before his leading role in the new Star Wars saga.

MORE EVENTS 
AND CRAZINESS   

You can visit the cinema anywhere and anytime you want. That’s why LIFF has more than that. Over the past few years we watched tropical movies in a broiling greenhouse, historical movies on an actual Greek temple, the licentious Spring Breakers in a pool (party included), and much more. LIFF plays movies like nobody else, and this year is no different. The crazier, the better.

After a year of absence, crapmeisters Nils and Hans return to LIFF stronger than ever: a shining beacon of fluorescent light among the quality films showed during the rest of the festival.
