5th Bengaluru International Short Film Festival, 2015 August 28-30, 2015
May 21, 2015

It’s that time of the year when the Bengaluru International Short Film Festival calls for participation. The festival, organised by Suchitra Film Society is set to take place between August 28 and 30, 2015. The four year old festival has come to establish itself in the Bengaluru calendar as well as in international film circles.

Looking back
The previous editions of the festival were made successful with great collections of shorts each year. BISFF 2014 received over 500 submissions from around 55 countries. Of the 200 odd shorts that were screened, around 50 filmmakers were present at the three day festival, to be part of an effort to better understand the medium of film.

5th BISFF, 2015
This year, we have already received a staggering 2670 submissions under both Student and Non Student categories. A larger part of this is from outside India and a fair number of films are from across the country, varied in language and subject.

We’d like to take the 5th edition of BISFF to the next level, with greater quality content, technical innovations, and newer perspectives in storytelling. And in this endeavour, we call for greater participation especially from local talent and enthusiasts.
