The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Designated Bengaluru International Short Film Festival(Bisff) As An Official Qualifying Film Festival For Live-Action.

BISFF was conceived on an ambitious dream-fuelled evening, and the strength provided by multi-award winner Prakash Belawadi it came to fruition, Prakash who continues to be the festival mentor.
