New York Film Festival pays tribute to late Toronto artist Will Munro

The 23rd annual MIX New York Queer Experimental Film Festival will run Will Munro’s Dirty Load, a short doc on the influential Toronto artist and promoter, on a loop next month. Director Matt Thomas, associate editor of fab magazine, says the installation is intended to run continually as a “festival-long running tribute” to Munro.

The festival takes place at The MIX Factory, Theater for the New City, in NYC from Nov 9 to 14. The annual film festival promotes work that challenges mainstream notions of gender and sexuality and has previously included work by Munro and filmmaker Bruce LaBruce.

The festival tribute follows a posthumous exhibit at the AGO of Munro’s work and the recent announcement by the Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans Youth Line of a new Spirit of Will Munro Award.

Munro died this year in May after a two-year battle with brain cancer.
