Films + Discussions + Masterclass


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. The idea of BISFF was to create a platform for young and amateur filmmakers, where they could screen their shorts to discerning audiences and, more importantly, find constructive and critical feedback from experts in the field.
