A little more about OtherZine…
OtherZine is the semi-annual webzine of Other Cinema, microcinema extraordinaire for experimental film, “live cinema”, and video art in San Francisco’s Mission District. Whether avant-garde or engagé, OtherZine’s emphasis is on the radical subjectivities and sub-cultural sensibilities that find expression in marginalized cinematic genres, media archaeological efforts, as well as contemporary intermedia hybrids. We encourage cinema-related writings and artist projects that support these endeavors and other explorations in media culture: articles, essays, interviews, reviews (art, books, media, events), rants, videos, illustrations, images, and other!
Current and past issues are available at: http://www.othercinema.com/otherzine/
