Montreal & Toronto – CANADA
September 6 to 14, 2012
Upcoming Deadline: July 20, 2012
The 3rd Annual ZERO FILM FESTIVAL – CANADA (ZFF) exclusively celebrates the courage, ingenuity, and talent of self-financed filmmakers from around the world. Each film screened at ZFF is made with little to no budget but with limitless imagination. Since 2007, ZFF has featured more than 1,000 films from filmmakers working on five continents, and has held screenings in unique venues in London, Peru, France, Los Angeles, and New York. This year marks ZFF’s first festival in Montreal and third in Toronto, two of Canada’s most exciting cities.
ZFF’s award winners each nab a $500 USD cash prize, and select filmmakers earn programming space in other ZFF events around the globe or distribution through the festival’s partner label, LoWave. Up-and-coming filmmakers have the chance to exhibit their work in a celebratory environment alongside such talents as David Lynch and Chloë Sevigny. Success at Zero Film Festival today could generate great opportunities tomorrow; just ask writer-director Lena Dunham, a ZFF alum and the creator of HBO’s hit series, “Girls.” ZFF is more than a film festival – it’s a multimedia event exclusive to self-financed filmmakers that brings talented artists together and sparks relationships that could last for years.
