KinoZine (also known as Kino) is an independent fanzine from Belgium which is released annually on 17th of April. The fanzine is rooted in the DIY punk/hardcore culture and still features topics loosely connected to the DIY spirit, ranging from traveling, food culture to music and art.
KinoZine is created by Belgian graphic designer Silas Vidar and his friend / writer Kenneth Vanhoutte and can count on several other contributors.
The paper's first issue was published on 17th of April 2007 as a result of a growing passion towards printed matter. It was initially printed on recycled paper and finished by hand. Since then the DIY approach to the design process still stands strong.
