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

ZFF is an independent not-for-profit organization firmly committed to supporting under-represented 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.


Based in New York, this festival utilizes hometown connections and partnerships to create Zero's most innovative and largest festival.

---

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!

ORGANIZERS
Matt Keff (Director of Technology) ; Richard Hooban (Managing Director)

GENERAL RULES
Zero Film Festival is the the first festival exclusive to independent filmmakers. Your film MUST be self-financed.

You MUST include a cover letter with your entry, detailing premiere status, why you made this film and any noteworthy details we should know before previewing it.

IMPORTANT:

A select few filmmakers from this year's program will be invited to include their films in International ZERO Film Fest Screenings and inclusion in the Zero Film Festival DVD.

Along with your submission to Zero Film Festival, you can opt in to the ZFF Written Review/Feedback, which offers filmmakers a chance to receive feedback about their films. For filmmakers we aren't able to program, it will explain the reasons why as well as provide suggestions for making future projects more program friendly. For accepted filmmakers, it provides feedback and a base from which to gather a pres quote.
