NISFFI is a Film Festival that BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER to recognize and value the Filmmakers.

We welcome movie producers from everywhere throughout the world to present their movies to our universal short film celebration which will occur in NISFFI. Our judges value the auteur Cinema – films made with an extraordinary aesthetic vision. The goal of our festival is to find new talented filmmakers who will be able to approach the heights of cinematography created by geniuses.

Established in 2017, the Nashik International Short Film Festival serves as a networking occasion with a yearly participation of more than 500 people. Nashik Short Film Festival is an autonomous film celebration that puts the focus on short movies – a classification that lamentably doesn’t get the standard consideration it needs. We acknowledge entries from around the globe and urge you to bring the outing down-under to celebrate with your film and commitment with us.

Winners will receive Cash prizes, certificates, laurels, and advice on upcoming film projects.
