MIX NYC is the nonprofit home of the annual New York Queer Experimental Film Festival and the ACT UP Oral History Project.


Since 1987, MIX NYC has been a laboratory for experimental media art rooted in the lives, politics, and experiences of queer people. Through hosting annual film-festivals and screenings, MIX brings together a large and diverse community in celebration of film and video as mediums for queer art, craft, and self-expression, creating transformative visual and social experiences.

At MIX, film and video become a process of participation and dialogue, providing queer artists the chance to present work to an audience of peers. MIX strives to turn passive audiences into active participants through communal practices and volunteerism, extending the reach of our mission beyond the walls of any particular screening or festival.
