We are an Independent film festival with live screenings, that happens yearly in different cities in Maharashtra, India. Welcome to Canvas International Short Fest. We are facilitating our second Annual Festival in 2020. Our mission is intended to help make a stage for our producers to be seen, yet more significantly, get them the business presentation to help support their specialty for a long time to come. The CANISF is amazingly energized for its grandstand season and plans on getting extraordinary compared to other film festivals in Pune.
