PLEASE NOTE: We are in the progamming phase. Due to program time constraints some of the films may only be presented as trailers provided by the filmmaker.

Zed Fest Film Festival "Official Selections" are films that are up for awards and commendations. They are in consideration for full film presentation or trailer presentation. That is due to time constraints. Trailer film presentations are fully eligible for awards. We may play them in full at a future film festival event with notification to filmmaker, in the event they would like to join us.
