Bandung International Student Film Festival (BISFF)

Bandung International Student Film Festival (BISFF) is a film festival initiated by Film and Television Study Program at Faculty of Art and Design Education, Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (UPI) in Bandung – Indonesia. This film festival provides an opportunity for filmmakers who are still student (high school, undergrad and graduate student films) in various countries. Films that have successfully passed the judging will be screened in festival activities that will take place in the city of Bandung – Indonesia.

BISFF is a public activity that involves various parties in the film ecosystem. As a cultural activity, BISFF also initiates discussion rooms, holds workshops, parallel activities related to the community directly as well as film screenings and awards for selected films.


First held in early 2020, BISFF started with regional activities in Indonesia under the name FFSM (Festival Film Sineas Mahasiswa / Student Film Cinema Festival). This festival was stopped due to the Pandemic in 2020, but is still holding online activities with the theme Open Art and Cinema Summer Program which will be held in June 2021 and 2022 in collaboration with Uniwersytet Artystyczny im. Magdaleny Abakanowicz w Poznaniu, Poland, The Asien-Africa Institute of Universitat Hamburg, Germany and Rumah Budaya Indonesia (Haus der Indonesischen Kulturen) in Berlin, Germany.

Starting in 2023 FFSM transform into BISFF and raised the theme “Andragogy” as a common thread of ideas that will be raised in the next 10 years.
