We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

From Concept to Object: The Zine as a Creative Conduit

May 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

Self-published, limited distribution, one-of-a-kind works of text and images, zines have been a subculture mainstay for decades and continue to evolve. This workshop will recontextualize this definition as it relates to filmmaking today and examine how zines can become tools in exploring, developing, and materializing your ideas. We will look at examples of filmzines and explore how they can help you get started on a project with no equipment or funding, be a gateway to other mediums, and allow you to visualize an idea from your head to the page. Being works of art in and of themselves, we will touch on the history of the zine and the merits of physical objects in the creative process.

Join Mila Matveeva, illustrator, film producer, and zine-maker, for a workshop on how the zine can become part of your creative work and leave with resources and a few prompts to get started on your own.

Mila Matveeva is a film producer and illustrator in New York City. Most recent projects include the forthcoming feature film We’re All Going to the World’s Fair, as well as season 2 of The Eyeslicer. She has worked with HBO, IFP, PBS, Kickstarter, Quad Cinema, and The Future of Film is Female, and is a contributor to Screen Slate and Exclaim!. She is a former member of Silent Barn, a collectively-run arts and music show space in Brooklyn, NY.
