The 26th Annual MIX NYC, New York's Queer Experimental Film Festival is taking Brooklyn's Gowanus neighborhood by storm all week.  After opening earlier this week with a program of the best in queer film and video work and some performance and installation pieces, the festival rages on into the weekend.

The festival, which was started by the filmmaker Jim Hubbard and the writer Sarah Schulman, has a long indie film history.  It's been a part of recent indie film history as the launching pad for Jonathan Caouette when he was finishing up "Tarnation."  Caouette will be back with two new shorts before the Saturday screening of Jason Ryan Yamas's "Not Me, Murphy."

Every year, the festival's venue, all dressed up with decorations and installations, is part of the allure, and this year is no exception.  And the festival has Andre Azevedo (Installations Coordinator) and Diego Montoya (Venue Designer) to thank for the beauty that is their converted warehouse space, which takes on the body as its theme.  

Check out the venue in the photos below:
