New Yorker Michael Connor attempts to find the woman who left him by making a film about her, hoping that someone (maybe you?) will recognize his ex and convince her to get back together with him. To help the viewer understand who he is and why his girlfriend left, Michael opts to re-enact his failed relationship for the camera. He hires an actress to portray his ex-girlfriend, and during the process of filming she quickly and mercilessly points out all of his mistakes, blunders and inadequacies as a boyfriend. "This Is Not a Film" is a romantic comedy about making mistakes and recognizing them in the most painful way possible--by making them over and over again. Written by

Did You Know?
The title of this movie is a play on words, but it's also technically correct. This is not a film, it is a video that was shot on standard definition video at 30 frames per second giving it a very un-film like look. See more
I don't even know why we're doing this - why are we doing YOUR life story in MY video, that's what I want to know.
Because... It's your six degress of separation, jackass! You know ME. I went through THIS. I started my group, she came to the group - THAT'S how you know her. Think!
