What kind of films does Zed Fest Film Festival screen?

Zed Fest Film Festival screens American and International films.
We founded our Film Festival to encourage and support independent low and big budget, filmmakers, who work in the horror, suspense, science fiction, drama, action, adventure, and art house genres. The festival screens feature-length, short films, super short films and student shorts.

We have no restriction on when the movie was made. If it was made as far back as the 1960's, or just a few days before you submit it to us.

We prefer the following genres:

Science Fiction
Art House/Experimental

As long as the final format is on authored DVD or Blu-ray, the original format can be anything from 8mm film, 16mm film, 35mm film, video tape, digital video, etc.

We do not select anything stronger than R rating. We exhibit at neighborhood theaters, so we need to comply with ratings.
