First Edition Overview

Calcutta International Short Film Festival 2020

The vision of the Calcutta International Short Film Festival is to create a dynamic platform to acknowledge the filmmaking efforts of independent filmmakers and showcase their best stories to the cinephiles in India and around the globe.

CISFF-2020 Festival Film

97 Short Films, 46 countries, 3 Days

CISHORTFF is committed to building a global platform for filmmakers beyond curating the best of the shorts. The film festival includes panel discussions to engage the audience and provide insights from independent filmmakers, festival programmers, film distributors, and art curators with the goal of disseminating sought-after information and demystifying the script-to-screen process for filmmakers around the world.

We've discussed the motivation and concept of CISHORTFF. We, on the other hand, believe in giving credit where credit is due. The faith of the filmmakers who submitted their works to the festival, as well as the engagement of its collaborators and industry partners, is crucial to the success of any film festival.

We thank the filmmakers who shared their stories with CISHORTFF, as well as the industry leaders who joined us on this voyage.
