Canzine this year is a horror

Just in time for Hallowe'en, Canzine, the annual zine fair, is gearing up for a ghoulish good time in Toronto. It's Canada's largest annual Zine Fair and Festival of Alternative Culture, organized by Broken Pencil, the Magazine of Zine Culture and the Independent Arts. (Canzine East was held last weekend in Halilfax).

Hotel Canzine is on Sunday, October 28, 2007, 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at The Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen St. West (Queen just East of Dufferin). $5 at the door gets the new Horror Issue of Broken Pencil and access to hundreds of zines, all-day horror screenings, DIY Gore workshops, readings, and all sorts of other madness.

Hotel Canzine (Toronto) will feature (among other things):
  • a zine fair and show, with 150 indy zines available
  • six indie writers telling ghost stories in front of the Canzine Campfire.
  • The "Cheap Thrills Special Effects Exhibit" where participants can indulge in do-it-yourself gore, then ham up a fake black eye, bloody lip and severed hand
  • All day indie horror movies in the Canzine screening room.
  • An all-day murder mystery game, The Canzine Whodunit
