A call for submissions to the first Trylon zine

Though the Trylon is open for (very limited) business, we are unable to meet our monthly costs with screenings alone. We’ve started kicking around the idea of putting out a limited edition zine written by our staff, volunteers and YOU to raise some funds! Because so many of us need to be seperate, we want to share our ideas in a medium that we love almost as much as movies, one that doesn’t require us to meet together.

We invite submissions––written and visual––that focus on a variety of topics related to movies and the Trylon. But we are especially interested in descriptive articles that help document and reflect on what the Trylon, repertory cinema, Minneapolis / St. Paul, and/or movie theaters mean, or have meant, to you. The zine aims to provide readers with insight and understanding of the ways we have come together as a community, a community that sits quietly together in the dark, and learns to adapt to a difficult, ever-changing, crisis together.

Submissions might address, but are certainly not limited to written or visual pieces that

  • Document the spring and summer without the Trylon.
  • Recount memorable movie screenings at the Trylon or elsewhere.
  • Describe a theater that means/meant a lot to you.
  • Explores why you’re still not ready to venture into a movie theater.
  • Chronicles how the local and global uprising changed the way you watch movies.

We’re excited to build community on our blog and in print, and we welcome your creativity. If you want to discuss an idea, please send a note to john@trylon.org and perisphere@trylon.org

The Trylon is a 501(c)3 non-profit repertory cinema. We believe that the past is not so distant and the world is not so large that we can’t gain understanding from one another.
