**If you were unable to RSVP for our sold-out 7pm showing, you can now RSVP for a second showing at 9pm!

MIX NYC is the longest-running queer film festival in New York City. Established in 1987, at the height of the AIDS epidemic, by Jim Hubbard and Sarah Schulman, this DIY festival was organized in response to experimental film venues in New York City not programming contemporary work by LBGTQ+ filmmakers. As the nonprofit home of the annual New York Queer Experimental Film Festival and the ACT UP Oral History Project, MIX NYC has featured early works by filmmakers such as Christine Vachon, Todd Haynes, Isaac Julien, Thomas Allen Harris, Barbara Hammer, Juan Carlos Zaldivar, Jonathan Caouette, Jennie Livingston, Gus Van Sant, and Matthew Mishory. After a hiatus of a few years, MIX NYC is back with monthly screenings that are dedicated to creating a cultural community where contemporary queer experimental filmmakers can exhibit and garner support for their work.

The Film-Makers' Cooperative is honored to host the first of these monthly screenings marking the return of MIX! Join us at the FMC Screening Room (475 Park Avenue South, 6th Floor) for an exciting program of 16mm films from the Coop's collection that premiered or played at past MIX festivals, meet the current team bringing MIX back, and learn about ways to get involved and share your work!
