The 5th Beijing Indie Short Film Festival


Cinema Arts
Location:  Auditorium

The Beijing Indie Short Film Festival (BJISFF) will return for its fourth year on Sunday July 21 at UCCA, presenting over 20 independent shorts, including work for VR and animation. The films have been chosen for their connection to Beijing, whether through the directors or stories captured. Dedicated to supporting Beijing’s indie filmmaking scene, BJISFF aims to shine a spotlight on local and international filmmakers, accepting submissions that span a wide array of genres. The film festival has steadily built a following over the years, attracting increasingly high-caliber film submissions from around the world. The films this year are selected for their “mind-blowing visual effects, incredibly genuine storytelling and innovative use of animation,” according to Joshua Linder, BJISFF organizer and indie film director.
