ONLINE REGISTRATION IS OPEN BABY! DCZINEFEST.COM
FRI JUNE 20 @ THE FRIDGE (516 1/2 8th Street SE (Rear Alley))
All profits from this event will directly benefit The Fridge and Richmond Zine Fest who will be putting on their 8th annual Zine Fest this year. TWISTED ISSUES is a 1988 “Psycho-Punk Splatter Comedy” that was made in Gainesville, Florida, by Charles Pinion. The movie was made by members of the punk scene at the time and features an all local soundtrack that is killer. ZINED! is a 1997 short documentary on zine culture. The documentary discusses zine aesthetic, politics and reasoning. Slight discussion on digitalization of zines in a time when that was just starting, full of beautiful 1990s ziney footage, and more!!!

Interested in contributing writing or art to the fest but don’t want to make a full zine? Intimidated by the zine-making process? We’re putting together a compilation zine with contributions from first-time zinesters — anyone who’s never made their own zine or published work in one. Basically, we’ll give you a theme and you can draw or write about it to your heart’s content. We’ll put together the submissions, make a bunch of copies of the zine, and have them for free at this year’s Fest. No experience or self-proclaimed talent required. If you’re interested, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and spread the word!
