45365 is a 2009 documentary film made by first-time directors and brothers Bill Ross IV and Turner Ross. The film is about the everyday life of small town Sidney, Ohio and the people living in it; the title comes from the town's postal (zip) code.

45365 premiered at the 2009 South by Southwest Film Festival, where it won the Grand Jury Prize.[1] It won the Roger and Chaz Ebert Truer than Fiction award at the 2010 Independent Spirit Awards.[2] Jeannette Catsoulis has described the film as follows: "A beguiling slice of Midwestern impressionism, 45365 drops in on the residents of Sidney, Ohio, to observe their lunches and haircuts, trials and transgressions."[3]
