OtherZine #31:: Call for Proposals!!


OtherZine #31, Fall 2016 Issue will be published the first week of September!

This issue, OtherZine #31 is especially interested in a cinema of ideas—of generative proposals,

as in speculative futures–and also in analysis and deconstruction, and how these may be brought about in the world of the senses,

in audio-visual terms…and in the film essay in particular! A special interest may also be in language–text and vox–

towards radical-subjectivity, perspective, and certainly argument to include multiple valences included within.



July 5, 2015 – Proposals for OtherZine 31 to be received by Midnight.

A Proposal can include (but certainly is not limited to) a description, outline, incomplete draft, schematic,

or other articulated brainstorm. If you already have something written or published whichyou choose to re-publish

or which is already complete, that’s fine, too! A Proposal is

not required for submitting an article or other piece,

but, it is highly recommended.

August 15, 2016 Deadline for receipt of all Final Articles/Reviews/Projects.

OtherZine is the semi-annual webzine of Other Cinema, microcinema of 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, the alternative “gaze”

as well as contemporary intermedia hybrids. We encourage cinema-related writings

and artists’ projects that support these endeavors and other explorations in radical,

experimental media culture: articles, essays, interviews,

reviews (art, books, media events), rants, video(s),

illustration, manifesto, text/image, and other!
