A documentary by Marc Moscato from 1997. The film explains what zines are and goes into the motivations behind self-publishing. It features interviews of legendary 90s zinesters and some wild editing! The film is becoming increasingly rare, but we have secured our hands on an original VHS copy of it!
Dirty Girls is another short documentary shot independently in 1996 about a group of 13-year-old riot grrrls in Los Angeles who were socially ostracized at their school by their peers and upperclassmen.
ABOUT US: The Richmond Zine Fest is an annual event at which local and national (and perhaps even international if we’re so lucky) zine-makers can gather to sell and trade their zines and network with other people in the zine community. The zine fest is not just for zine creators and distros. It’s an open event for all ages with tablers selling zines as well as other DIY items, informative and fun workshops throughout the afternoon, and good times, food and conversation in general. This event happens every Fall–typically during the month of October.
The Richmond Zine Fest has been going strong in Richmond, VA, since 2007.
