MIX NYC promotes, produces, and preserves experimental media-from film and video to performance and music-that is rooted in the lives, politics, and experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and otherwise queer-identified people. Founded in 1987, MIX has earned a reputation as a crucible for artist-driven innovation with an established international influence on the world of experimental media. MIX is unique among arts and community-building organizations for its work on behalf of queer experimental media artists, supporting their production of new work, and making that work accessible to the public. For almost two decades, we have worked to create a home for queer experimental media. MIX is also unique among New York City’s cultural institutions. The annual New York Queer Experimental Film Festival, our most visible and longest-running program, showcases films and videos that literally go unseen in other venues. We define “experimental” broadly to mean not only films made using unorthodox techniques, but also those that deal with subject matter outside of the mainstream. In this respect, the MIX festival stands literally at the avant garde-the forefront of artistic innovation-and serves as a proving ground for new, socially conscious film. MIX NYC actively engages communities around the city and the nation through on-site local and touring screenings. We also preserve aging queer experimental films, such as the early 16mm work of Marguerite Paris, to guarantee its endurance for the future; and we operate a summer-long youth media training program to provide a new generation of queer filmmakers with the tools they need to make their voices heard.
