In the five years since Bivas Biswas began his career in filmmaking, his short films have won more than 15 awards from festivals around the country. This year, the native of Calcutta, India, added "Arizona Filmmaker of the Year" from the Phoenix Film Festival to his list. Jason Carney, the festival's director, says Biswas "has a tremendous eye for creating incredible visuals, and his films always have a unique feel to them." As the founder of D.I.B. Pictures Entertainment, Biswas has directed and produced short films like Miss Matched (2007) and Reason (2006), as well as TV commercials and music videos. Not bad for someone trained as a computer scientist.
