If you like stories, comics, DIY things and making new friends — then this is for you: It’s the First Annual Brooklyn Zine Fest!
When: Sunday, April 15th, 2012. 11am-6pm
Where: Public Assembly, 70 N. 6th Street, Williamburg, Brooklyn
What: Over 60 writers, artists and publishers selling and trading zines.
What is a zine, you ask? A zine is a handmade, hand-drawn, cut and pasted, photocopied and self-distributed booklet that can be about anything. And can be made by anyone.
Kseniya Yarosh & Matt Carman organized the Brooklyn Zine Fest, and are the creators of a zine called I Love Bad Movies (which you can purchase on Etsy). They stop by an extra-special secret location to chat with me about the zine fest and bad movies, and take my Guess That Bad Movie Clip Quiz to give you all a taste of some of the films tepidly praised and/or joyously reviled in the latest issue of I Love Bad Movies.
Browse Q&As with almost all the exhibiting writers and artists on the Brooklyn Zine Fest site. Other zines mentioned in the podcast that you can find at the Fest:
There will be a full bar, selling Mar-zinis. (Martini + zine = delicious??)
Also: A raffle! With prizes! Including: 2 pairs of glasses from Classic Specs, movie tickets, Earth: The Book signed by the Daily Show staff, books and comics from Forbidden Planet, a 1-year Zine of the Month subscription, a 1-year membership to 3rd Ward, Brooklyn Brewery gift certificates and of course, zines!
