Discover the great
directors of tomorrow

Luce
Luce

Model student Luce Edgar shocks his teacher, Harriet, with his essay on political violence. Now Harriet, Luce and his parents have to deal with complicated questions about race, identity, morality and more. This intense, intelligent and timely thriller will linger long after the credits roll.

Seberg
Seberg

Hollywood, 1968. The celebrated A BOUT DE SOUFFLE star and global style icon, American actress Jean Seberg returns from Paris to the States, but soon finds herself on the radar of an illegal FBI surveillance program because of her ties to the civil rights movement. Kristen Stewart shines as Seberg in this intriguing biopic.

The Peanut Butter Falcon
The Peanut Butter Falcon

After running away from a residential nursing home to pursue his dream of becoming a pro wrestler, a man who has Down syndrome befriends an outlaw (Shia LaBeouf), who becomes his coach and ally in this lovely feel-good adventure.

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. The crazier, the better.
