ISTANBUL INTERNATIONAL ZINE FEST
Date: 2-3-4 May 2014
This is an open invitation for all who are involved in “fanzines”, or those who somehow touched them, or wish to do so in times to come. This text has been translated into English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and Russian to begin with.
You can partake in the International Fanzine Festival with your fanzines —no matter what subject matter, type or form they have— projects, yourself and your friends. It is open to all kinds of participation, whether in the organization phase, or in the workshops, exhibitions, camp, or by following the live broadcasts online.
Until now, as the invitation is written and translated, the schedule agreed by the fanzines which contribute to the idea and the organization is as below, while the contents shall further clarify as the dates approach:
May 2nd, 2014: Various workshops, movie screenings, exhibitions, stands in Kadikoy (Istanbul). Place: Don Quixote Squat (or preferably another squat depending on the date and the situation.)
May 3rd, 2014: Buyukada (Prince Islands, Istanbul) gigs by several bands, tent camp, stands.
May 4th, 2014: Buyukada - Kadikoy: On the way back, sharing the products of the festival, talks on forthcoming projects.
In the scope of the festival, various workshops, movie screenings, exhibitions, fanzine and DIY product stands, concerts, and performances will be held, and the festival will be broadcast live online. The extent is open to suggestions, proposals and all kinds of new ideas.
There is also an effort to produce several fanzines in cooperation with the fanzines from abroad, to communicate and share our experiences. Therefore, our request from those who receive this invitation and who wish to participate, is to translate some content from the fanzines they will choose, into several languages and submit to us. For the fanzine-makers who do not have the means of translation, we will try to give translation support for the content they submit, yet limited to volunteer translators.
For the fanzines who wish to participate from abroad, accommodation, and contacts from Istanbul about the topics of their interest will be provided free of charge. There will be no problems for place to sleep before and after the festival. Official faceboog page of Istanbul Zine Fest--- https://www.facebook.com/fanzinfest

For the fanzines who will participate from cities other than Istanbul, we will help as much as possible for finding accommodation.
Please contact us in advance to take part in the scope of the festival in any way, to open a stand, to screen a movie, to give translation support, to send fanzines etc.
