MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Zero Film Festival is the first and only festival EXCLUSIVE to self financed filmmakers and the authentically independent and hand-crafted films they create.

ZFF is an independent not-for-profit organization firmly committed to supporting self-financed filmmakers and screening the world's best self-financed films for cinema lovers everywhere. ZFF focuses on community, inclusivity, innovation and good times on Planet Earth.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
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- Canada expands the Zero Film Festival experience to Canada, offering filmmakers an opportunity for exposure concurrently with Toronto International Film Festival as well as a showcase in the heart of Montreal in conjunction with the Canadian National Film Board .

---

Zero Film Festival has established itself as a festival representing authenticity, integrity and innovation. Since 2007, ZFF has screened over 1000 films from filmmakers in five continents, holding international screenings in London, Peru, France, Canada and many more one-off screenings and events, including at MOMA PS1.

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!
