Zine Jam: Felix Meritis Edition

mini documentary

My second film about the annual gathering of zinesters and zine fans in Amsterdam. This time it took place within the hallowed halls of Felix Meritis – building with a soul that deserves a documentary of its own. In this film we get to know members of the amazing ReKult group who organized the event, as well as the artists from all over the world who came to showcase their zines, run workshops, and just have fun.

Teaser video

I went to the venue before the event to plan the shots and shoot some behind the scenes footage. The result was a teaser video we used to promote the event in social media.


Once the event was over and the doors were closed, we could finally breath out. After a few beers, the cleanup turned into an impromptu photo session with the ReKult group. Good that I had my lovely Sony A7 and Zeiss 55mm 1.8 with me.
