The Second Bengal International Short Film Festival is currently underway and will be screening films in various languages like Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Hindi, Urdu. The festival will even have short films. The submissions for the short films are from countries like US, France, Italy, Britain, Bangladesh and New Zealand.
Several organizations are setting up short film festivals and that is definitely adding some unique flavors to the niche. This is not the first time that a silent film will be screened at a short film festival. Earlier, a short film about two men who meet each other in a Mumbai train was screened at Kashish 2017. That was a silent film too. It remains to be seen what other surprises the short film niche hits us with next.
