Chicago Zine Fest Wants to Play Croquet with You

CZF Movie Night.jpg

In today's fast-paced, hyper-tech, power-driven society, it's difficult to stay in touch with the truth; difficult to be yourself, to produce authentic work, to embrace individualism. This is why in such tumultuous times it is important to revisit those pieces of art that hold a mirror up to society and ask, "What is your damage, Heather?"

Chicago Zine Fest, one of the largest conferences of self-published talent in the country, celebrates artists and authors with powerful voices and unique perspective -- Veronicas in a world of Heathers. While CZF 2015 is still many moons away, the preparations have already begun, and the festival needs your help. Join the Hideout (1354 W. Wabansia Ave.) in a fundraising screening of the darkest of comedies on Sept. 24, featuring candy from Dandy Sweets! Doors open at 5:30pm, $7 suggested donation.
