Fireflies is a film zine that is a must-read for anyone serious about cinema, particularly auteurist cinema. It takes its name from an essay by Pier Paolo Pasolini and has a focus on directors, with each issue devoted to two filmmakers and a director interview at the centre of things.
Around this are artworks, poems and essays from sympathetic contributors. The magazine is split into two parts, with a double cover. It’s an arrangement that, along with its delicious and thoughtful construction, underscores a love of print.
Fireflies is created between Berlin and Melbourne and is independent, self-published and not-for-profit.
