Girls, on Film is a quarterly fanzine that is hopelessly devoted to 80’s movies. For each issue, we select a theme and discuss a handful of 80’s movies related to that theme. We cover all kinds of themes and all kinds of movies.
You can read all of our zines online for free. Due to health concerns we are not currently shipping print issues.

Stephanie’s one big disappointment in life is that she wasn’t old enough to fully appreciate popular clothing styles in the 80s, as she was mostly attired in paisley sweatsuits. A full-time editor and occasional freelancer, Stephanie looks nostalgically back on 80s films such as Ernest Goes to Camp, Adventures in Babysitting, and Can’t Buy Me Love and wishes she could pull off the hairdos of Cindy Mancini and her friends.
Janene has created a buttload of zines over the years and introduced Stephanie to the craft. Janene spent much of her teen years combing musty video stores for all the 80s movies her hometown had to offer. There were lists… She’s got plenty of favorites from the decade, but its stylish indie films like Desperately Seeking Susan, Repo Man, Blood Simple, and Terminator that she loves best.
