OtherZine is the semi-annual ‘zine manifestation from Other Cinema, microcinema community extraordinaire featuring new, world premiere, feature-length and short form experimental works of collage, found footage, animation, in addition to “live cinema”, cutting-edge video and more. Other Cinema is located in the Mission District of San Francisco.
Whether avant-garde or engagé, OtherZine’s emphasis follows from, but is not limited to, the cinematic sensibilities of Other Cinema. We seek to publish works on or about or which reflect the radical subjectivities and sub-cultural sensibilities that find expression in marginalized cinematic genres, media-archaeological efforts, and contemporary intermedia hybrids. We encourage cinema-related writings and artist projects: essays, interviews, reviews (art, films, books, media, events), rants, videos, illustrations, images, and other! We encourage younger writers and students of cinema and film to make submissions.
OtherZine is online at:
