We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I'm looking for films related to zines or indy press. We are about to organize a zine fest in Athens (GR) and I think it would be great to show a short film/s about the zine scene.

Let me know if you have anything in mind. ;)

We have a film about Belorussian zine scene, named "KinaZina", made by two girls (who also make Tryznas Kefiras fanzine). It contains 12 interviews with different Belorussian zinesters, each about 5-10 minutes long.

 

You can download it here:

Or watch any of 12 interviews on YouTube (search by term KinaZina):

All info is available here (the page is in russian, but it's very simple, so you can use Google Translate):

http://www.diy-zine.com/zines/kinazina-istoriya-belorusskogo-samizd...

 

There's also a film about Brazilian zine scene here, on wemakezines.ning.com. :)

I can try to make english subtitles for KinaZina, if you want to show it on the festival. Send me an e-mail to ba4an@yandex.ru, if you think, that it's good idea.

The only zine film I remember right now is "¿Qué significa underground?", a Spanish documentary by Guillermo Carandini released in 2009. It's pretty centered in the Spanish comic scene (the most important one in the country).

 

You can visit the official website here:

Watch the trailer here:

And read some more info here (in Spanish, but as bachan said, you can use Google translator) :

Some time back I think they were preparing some English subtitles, but I don't know if they finally made them.

 

Good luck!

Both videos seem very interesting but the subtitles is an issue. I've just e-mail Guillermo Carandini about the film and hope for good news.

Thank u guys!

Have you heard of $100 and a T-Shirt from Microcosm? Here's the link: http://microcosmpublishing.com/catalog/videos/1011/.

 

I haven't heard it before to be honest. I saw the trailer and seems pretty nice! Sadly, the people who made it have no english subs, something that would be very helpful for the screening.

Thanks, I already knew the page, but I hadn't seen the cathegories before.

There is an issue of the Australian zine 'You' which took the form of a DVD of readings from the zine.  The film was screened in Melbourne at The Australian Centre for The Moving Image and was shown in the UK last year at the Brighton Zine Fair.  The zine is anonymous so all the people reading in the film were dressed in masks and disguises.  The film goes for about an hour.

I found the link of the Brazilian documentary.

 

It's downloadable and it has English subtitles :
