About this project
Risks and challenges
The mercurial nature of New York City real estate has always proved to be a challenge to putting on the festival every year. Finding a space that is both large enough to accommodate a theater, a space for installations and a space for the audience to be able to interact with the filmmakers and artists between screenings while also being accessible and welcoming to everyone (artist, audience and staff) and a price we can afford has never been an easy feat.
Then to transform that space, usually a raw one, into the festival venue requires a dedicated team of volunteers and staff who give weeks of their time to the task, both before and after the festival has finished.
MIX would not exist without the support of our community, through volunteering their time and energy and attending the festival in record breaking numbers every year. The past 25 years of the festival have shown that there is a need for a platform for work that represents and resonates with our audiences.
We want this, our 25th MIX Festival, to be a celebration not only of a milestone in the festival's long history, but a celebration of the community that has supported us from the very first festival. With their continued support, we can look forward to 25 more great years of MIX and 25 more after that!
