Zero Film Fest Hits Brooklyn Nov 13-20, then Miami & L.A.

From a variety of sources:

Zero Film Fest Comes to NYC, LA & Miami

Zero Film Festival is the first and only festival EXCLUSIVE to self financed filmmakers and the authentically independent films they create.
ZFF is a New York and Los Angeles based independent not-for-profit organization firmly committed to supporting under-represented filmmakers and screening the world's best self-financed films for cinema lovers everywhere. ZFF focuses on community, inclusivity and good times on planet Earth.

the festival:

In the age where the majority of festivals are Hollywood marketing campaigns, and even "indie" and "underground" festivals screen financed films, we exist to offer something different. Each year Zero holds events in New York, Los Angeles and Miami, providing exposure for authentically independent filmmakers.

In 2009 ZFF added our 1st West Coast Tour - screening select films in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Hollywood and Orange County. 2010 saw this expand into our 1st North American Tour, with Toronto hosting Zero's 1st international event. 2011 = Europe

The 3rd Annual Zero Film Festival, scheduled for November 2010 in New York, and in December in Los Angeles and now Miami, maintains the Zero tradition of bringing cinema lovers the best new self-financed cinema the world has to offer, from feature length narratives and documentaries to expansive shorts program and our curated experimental, music video, conflict nation and youth filmmaker programs.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
