Tartan Features is a filmmaking strand which falls under the umbrella of Year Zero Filmmaking, an initiative to establish a new pathway for micro-budget and DIY filmmaking within the mainstream film industry.
It is open to all and everyone who feel that their work is being overlooked by an industry who often ignore new talent for bureaucratic or political reasons.
It is a breeding ground for experimenting, opening up pathways to larger filmmaking opportunities and creating exciting bold, forward thinking features.
The Year Zero Filmmaking umbrella consists of non-exclusive strands for Distribution (Cinema/DVD/Streaming), Promotion, Production, Shorts and more.
The ethos is based on DIY culture, specifically relating to Independent Punk Rock Records labels; and the belief that technology and the internet has helped democratise filmmaking.
