Bengaluru International Short Film Festival, 2019

Shorts ! Shorts ! Shorts!
BISFF, the premier Short Film Festival in India turns 9 and we are putting out calls for film submissions. The Bengaluru International Short Film Festival (BISFF) is set to take place between August 15-18, 2019 in Bengaluru and includes screenings, competitions & panel discussions. This festival being one of its kind, has come to establish itself not only in the Bengaluru cinema calendar but in international film circles as well.

Looking back

From humble beginnings of a mere 30-40 submissions in 2011 to BISFF 2018 receiving over 3500 submissions from around 60 countries, the festival has become the fulcrum of Short Films in India. Of the 200 odd shorts that were screened, 50 filmmakers were physically present at the four-day festival, to get live feedback and interact with the students & amateurs who sought help. BISFF has always kept cinema education as a focal point.

BISFF 2019

We endeavor to take the 2019 edition of BISFF to the next plane, with quality content, technical innovations, and fresh perspectives in storytelling. To achieve all this, we need the best of the best short films and greater participation, especially from local talent and enthusiasts. Additionally, there will be workshops and script labs as a part of the Festival schedule.
