Multiple venues

We are happy to host the 12th edition of Bengaluru International Short Film Festival (BISFF). 

This year BISFF will be in a hybrid format: the online screenings will take place from August 4 to14, 2022 and offline screenings from August 11 to 14, 2022 in Suchitra Film society and at the Bhavan.

BISFF was launched in 2010. It now has the distinction of being one of the largest Short Film Festivals in India. BISFF showcases shorts from across the world, creating a physical space for a great experience of cinema. It brings together keen, like-minded audiences for the filmmakers.

BISFF also exhibits works by past masters who have dabbled in short filmmaking that exists today as an independent art form. 

In 2020, BISFF received Oscar accreditation, making it the only Oscar Academy qualifying short film festival in India for the Live Action Category.

Additionally, the festival presents talks, panel discussions, demonstrations and workshops with leading thinkers,  professionals and industry practitioners, providing an opportunity for young filmmakers to interact with the best in the industry.

This year, BISFF received 3000 plus submissions from across 90 countries, out of which 23% are Women filmmakers. Around 250 films have been shortlisted for the festival screening.

Film enthusiasts can register and watch the movie here.

In collaboration with the BISFF we had announced a call earlier this year inviting scripts for short films to be produced by BISFF.

The winners will be announced on August 14, 2022 during the closing ceremony. The winning scripts will be supported with Rs. 1 Lakh each.
