MIX is calling for submissions to their 23rd annual queer experimental film festival, scheduled for November 9-14, 2010 at Theater for the New City in New York City’s East Village.
MIX is accepting film and video submissions, as well as proposals for curators, installations and performances. (Performances must incorporate film or video in an integral way.) See below for category deadlines and applicable fees.
Founded in 1987 by author Sarah Schulman and filmmaker Jim Hubbard, MIX Festival is New York’s longest-running queer film festival. Over the years, it has grown into an internationally recognized venue for emerging talents, introducing audiences to the early work of celebrated filmmakers such as Barbara Hammer, Gus Van Sant, Isaac Julien, Todd Haynes, Nisha Ganatra, Jennie Livingston, Jonathan Caouette and many others. The programming at MIX has had a broad influence on film festivals, museums and avant-garde showcases worldwide.
MIX Festival provides an opportunity for filmmakers, curators and audience members to meet in a grassroots environment to share information and insights about creating non-receptive media. Screenings are augmented by panel discussions, workshops and post-screening parties.
