THE INDEPENDENT INTERNATIONAL UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL

ZZUB FEST

WELCOME TO ZZUB FEST...

We've been gone for a little while but have re-charged the batteries and are back making our presence felt once more.

For those of you who were not with us when we started out back in 2012, ZZUB Fest is run by sisters Nicky & Jackie Smith, both trained in TV and Video production, with an award nominated short documentary, 'Chains, Whips 'n' Rubber Tips' (Carlton ITV 2003) under their high sheen PVC belts. They have since gone on to produce several topical but fun short documentaries that have been screened across the UK at various festivals. 

But these ladies love nothing more than to settle down behind the video cam to make their own short, schlocky, trashy and sometimes 'cheesy' films - cheesy in a good and very watchable way. Their influences collectively range from Sally Potter to John Waters, Roberto Rodriguez to Roger Corman, Quentin Tarantino to Russ D. Meyer... 

So if you are like-minded, grab any filmmaking equipment you can lay your hands on and 'schlock out'!  This is the platform for you! Calling all amateur and wannabe filmmakers: BRING OUT YOUR TRASH!
