btf zine



Afinalpage1 beautiful compendium on two of our favourite things – film and food all flavoured with abarbrastreisandillustration feminist perspective! 22 delicious features plus tasty illustrations from a smorgasbord of female writers and artists from London to Paris, New York to Canada. We’re using this zine to highlight women who write about film and challenge the myth that there is a ‘dearth’ of female film critics and includes writings from Ruby Tandoh, Sophie Mayer, Christina Newland, Grace Barber-Plentie, Alice Jones, Sarah Carson, Jen Wallace, Corrina Antrobus, Florence Robson, Alice Guilluy, Emma Smith, Jade Grogan and many, many, many more…

Essays, articles, and the odd tasty recipe, all gorge on themes of hunger, thirst, appetite and cravings; food as punishment and food as play; sustenance; comfort food and our romantic relationship with food and the movies.
