Zero Film Festival is the first and only festival EXCLUSIVE to self-financed filmmakers and their authentically independent films.

Zero Film Festival is a New York based independent organization and not-for-profit, committed to helping emerging filmmakers and screening original and innovative films for cinema lovers in London and the United Kingdom.


Zero Film Festival - Focusing on a niche in the independent film community which has been under appreciated and ignored, Zero Film Festival is the first and only festival exclusively screening self financed films from filmmakers all over the world.

In the age where the majority of festivals are Hollywood marketing campaigns, and even "indie" and "underground" festivals screen financed films, we are here to offer a unique opportunity. We recognize authentically independent films and filmmakers who take risks and fight odds to see their cinematic visions through.

Founded in New York and Los Angeles, Zero Film Festival- London expands the Zero Film Festival experience to Europe, offering filmmakers an opportunity for exposure in London and the United Kingdom.

Zero Film Festival will screen award winning films from the 2011 program in select cities throughout the United Kingdom and Europe.


Zero Film Festival has established itself as a festival representing authenticity, integrity and innovation. Since 2007, ZFF has screened over 500 films from filmmakers in five continents.

Zero Film Festival alumni have gone on to receive distribution and financing for their next film projects.

Join the filmmaker community of one of the fastest growing film festivals!
