SIGN UP HERE TO VOLUNTEER

The annual celebration of everything queer and experimental is approaching – and it’s time to start getting our venue ready for this feast.

To get a sense of what it’s like to volunteer, check out this video by MIX 2014 feature director Stéphane Gérard!

OPEN YOUR CALENDARS, BLOCK THESE DATES OUT – THIS IS WHEN IT’S ALL HAPPENING:

October 20 – November 10: Venue Set Up
Transforming the space into our fantastic universe

November 11-16: MIX 2014 Festival
film screenings, performances, art installations, parties, food and the queerest community and art space in New York

November 17-23: Breakdown
sending the beast to the ether

This year we offer different options to be part of the MIX NYC family:

Seasonal Volunteers: ideally for those of you familiar already with MIX (though we love adding new people to the family!). These positions are for those who are able and would like to commit to at least 4 full work days per week. Jobs marked below with (*) are open for this option.

Daily Volunteers: setting up the space, running the festival and breaking it all down are all jobs of many MANY hands, and thousands of hours of labor. Come before or after your day job, spend the weekend with us – whenever you can show up we’ll have something for you to do to help us make this dream become real. Are you skilled at any of the jobs listed below? Want to help our teams with any of these tasks? Come join us!

MIX Volunteer 1

Do you have expertise in publicity and have some available time? MIX NYC has a specific need for copywriting and social media management skills on our Publicity Team!

Professional photographers and videographers, come help us document the space (at any point during both set up or the festival), help us capture the magic of MIX coming together!

Are you a journalist? Or do you run a blog, or have strong press contacts? Help MIX NYCgrow and thrive by featuring us! Contact Tink (tink@mixnyc.org) for more information about press materials, interviews with MIX NYC creators, and more. We believe we’re an incredible story!

WANNA HELP US WITH MIX 2015? HERE’S HOW!

2015 Programming Committee – Do you want to watch 600+ films and videos with us over the summer? Great opportunity to see the latest in queer experimental cinema, and curate the shows that speak to you.

2015 Publicity – Our work doesn’t end with the end of the festival. Our next Naked Eye Celebrity Camera Benefit is coming up, and we’re aiming to go all out. Great chance to help make MIX NYC more strategically visible.

Community Screening Manager – If you have any ideas for curated shows, and now of venues and locations that would welcome some community programming throughout the year, help us sustain our programming efforts in the off-season!

How do you sign up? Just fill out our volunteer form here. We will then contact you directly to coordinate.

This is it: we’re doing it again, and we can’t wait to see you all!

With much love and anticipation,

THE MIX TEAM
