ZED Fest Film Festival 2017 (Z movies)

The 8th Annual ZED Fest Film Festival 2017 returns to the NoHo Arts District October 31-November 3 – celebrating Horror, Sci-Fi, Art House filmmakers and screenwriters.

You’ve heard of “B-Movies” right? The low budget second movie in a double feature.

Movies that were bad, or so bad they’re good. Movies that demand multiple viewings and you can’t help but quote. You’ve probably have never heard of “Z-Movies” have you? The Z-Movies (or as we like to call them “Zed-Flicks”) were usually the independent micro-budget with unknown cast members, and made by filmmakers that had dedication to complete their films. They were the early incarnation of Grindhouse and Drive In Flicks. “Bs” (Actually many of what is considered an old B-Movie today were actually “Z’s” back when they first came out.) In The Zed Fest Film Festival’s opinion the “Zs” are better.

“We will be screening the best films from 2017 sent to us from all over the world. Our films are fun, artistic and innovative. Come celebrate independent films on “Halloween” and “Day of The Dead” in the NoHo Arts District with us.” – Wendy Medrano, Zed Fest Festival Director
