FILMME FATALES ISSUE #8: THE FINALE
After four years and eight issues, Filmme Fatales, the Melbourne-made zine celebrating women in film, is hitting pause on the remote and going on hiatus.
In issue #8, editor Brodie Lancaster is looking towards the future – because that is the theme around which everything in this issue has been created! That’s handy. Contributors – including Lesley Arfin (author of 'Dear Diary'; writer for 'Girls' on HBO; creator of 'Love' on Netflix), Danielle Henderson (creator of Feminist Ryan Gosling; writer for 'Divorce' on HBO and 'Difficult People' on Hulu; author of the forthcoming memoir 'The Ugly Cry'), Caroline Goldfarb (AKA @officialseanpenn; host of the podcast 'This Week Had Me Like'), Ruby Tandoh (hero of 'The Great British Bake Off' and author of brilliant cookbooks ‘Flavour’ and ‘Crumb’) and twenty-four other writers, artists and designers – have explored now and next, the future of film, and the hope our favourite characters hold tight to get through the tough times.
Published by Melbourne writing studio The Good Copy, issue #8 is the biggest ever issue of Filmme Fatales, and features interviews with actors Lily Rabe and Melanie Lynskey, and filmmakers Logan Kibens (Operator), Karen Bernstein (Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny), Stella Meghie (Jean of the Joneses), Julia Hart (Miss Stevens), Susanna Fogel (Life Partners) and Celia Rowlson-Hall (Ma). It was designed by Hope Lumsden-Barry (winner of The Design Kids' TDK Awards '16) with Stuart Geddes (founder of 'Head Full of Snakes'; designer of AGDA winning publications 'Mongral Rapture' and 'Some Posters from the NGV'), and the cover and centrefold feature photographs were snapped by Brodie Lancaster.
This might be the last issue of Filmme Fatales but you shouldn’t be be sad it’s over – you should be glad it happened. And you should also order a copy of issue #8 – they’re limited edition because print media is very expensive!
