Podcast Entry

Let yourself be heard at LIFF!

Founded in 2006, the Leiden International Film Festival (LIFF) has become one of the leading film festivals in the Netherlands showcasing feature films that examine the border between arthouse and mainstream from all over the world.

This year, we include podcasts to our storytelling platform. We’d love to hear your story at the LIFF studio. This can include, but is not limited to, a true story, a fun anecdote, a poem, or a fictional story. You don’t need your own equipment or be an achieved podcaster, everyone is welcome to submit!

LIFF will take place from October 28 until November 7. After the selection, the podcasts will be recorded by you and the LIFF tech crew at the LIFF studio (audio and video) and broadcasted (live) on our LIFF channels.


Submission is possible through FilmFreeway, until October 10.
