Bah, it's stuff like this that makes me wish I could travel internationally more often...
MIX21: The New York Queer Experimental Film Festival opens in less than one week, on Wednesday, October 15th in New York's historic South Street Seaport at 217 Water Street, between Fulton and Beekman.
This year's venue, the MIX Factory @ Seaport, is a former Liz Claiborne department store that allows us to present an unprecedented number of installations in the lobbies (both of them!), former dressing rooms and all the other recesses we could find.
In addition to the installations, there are over 100 films and videos to watch this year. Plus parties every night, performances between screenings, and our own afternoon "Tea by the Sea" social.
Below is the festival schedule at-a-glance. Full festival schedule and advance tickets are available online at www.mixnyc.org.

MIX NYC promotes, produces and preserves experimental media that is rooted in the lives, politics, and experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and otherwise queer-identified people. MIX's work challenges mainstream notions of gender and sexuality while also upending traditional categories of form and content.
