Greta Snider is a filmmaker and zinester from San Francisco.

In the 1990's Greta produced the zine Mudflap, which focused on fun and free stuff, and chronicled her travelling adventures. The zine was featured in 1997's Factsheet Five Zine Reader. As well, the zine, and Greta's artwork, was featured in the exhibition The Copyist Conspiracy: An Exhibition of Zine Art.

Greta contributed to the audio zine Long Ago and Right Now and to the punk zine Maximum Rock N Roll, for which she wrote reviews for a number of years.

Greta Snider is also the producer of twelve films. Several of these films feature zinesters. Shred of Sex features Deke Nihilson, editor of Homocore. It became a cult film on the festival circuit but has been lost for several years; in the interim, its achieved a mythic status, since it is no longer available to be shown and no copies have ever been found. Portland, made in 1996, features Iggy Scam of Scam and Ivy of Inmate, who, along with Greta, make up the trio of zinesters who decide to leave San Francisco for a trip to Portland and encounter unexpected adventures. NOZONE features the voiceover narration of Aaron Cometbus of Cometbus. Her films have been screened at film festivals across North America and Europe and have been shown at MOMA in New York and San Francisco and at the Sundance Film Festival.

Greta Snider presently teaches the Graduate Film Program at San Francisco State.
