Zero Film Festival blends Independent Cinema, Music and Art to Los Angeles

Called New York's "cultural smash hit" by Sentimentalist Magazine, the 2010 Zero Film Festival arrives with its gala opening on the rooftop of the Downtown Standard Hotel in Los Angeles on Wednesday, December the 8th. Featuring a complimentary happy hour, a unique building to building projection system and live music by Los Angeles artist Nite Jewel, the Zero Film Fest is challenging the notion of what a film festival should be.


While the festival is unique in that it is limited to completely self-financed filmmakers, it takes the further step of integrating visually enhanced live music and art installations to create an event that is larger than just the films. Striving to foster a sense of community and shared creativity, the festival blends alternative presentation spaces with traditional theaters to give festival audiences and filmmakers new ways to connect. In addition to The Standard Hotel, the festival has venues ranging from the Echo Park Film Center to the landmark Silent Theater on Fairfax, so Zero promises to be anything but routine.

And, while the major film festivals continue to market films with multi-million dollar budgets and A-list talent as "independent", the Zero Film Festival stays doggedly true to its core ethos. Though "Low-budget" used to be synonymous with "not very good", modern, high resolution cameras, powerful editing systems and special effects are now all within easy reach. As festival organizer Richard Hooban says, "technology has really set production free" and today's filmmakers are putting those technologies to use in increasingly innovative and creative ways.

As perhaps the most striking example, Zero's closing night feature film, "The Middle of the Middle" by Seattle director Daniel L. White, was recently nominated for a Best Cinematography award alongside a film sporting a seven figure budget and James Cromwell to boot. "The Middle of the Middle" on the other hand was shot for a mere $600. Selected from over 1000 submissions, the film is one of 10 feature and nearly 150 short films from around the world playing throughout this year's event. Regarding the nomination, White says, "it just goes right to the heart of what the Zero Film Festival is all about, which is making films because you're passionate about them and not limiting yourself."

"The Middle of the Middle" plays one night only on Saturday, December the 11th at 6:00 p.m. at The Silent Theater, 611 N. Fairfax Ave. Hollywood, CA 90036.

Complimentary drinks will be served.

Tickets are $12 and can be purchased via the web at:

The 3rd Annual Zero Film Festival runs in Los Angeles from December 8-11.
