Porn Festivals Everywhere!

Paris porn film festivalMaybe I’m just more aware of porn festivals since I went to Berlin, but it seems they’re popping up everywhere.

This weekend sees the second Pornotopia Feminist Porn Film Festival in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Petra’s Feeling It and Erika’s Five Hot Stories For Her are featured, as is Audacia’s funny new short Dacia’s Love Machine.

The weekend we got to Paris saw the first ever Paris Porn Film Festival… which I unfortunately missed. The Guardian wrote a somewhat cynical article about the festival and the growth of feminism and female influence in porn.

There are similar porn festivals planned for other cities in Europe throughout next year.

In January 2009 my new friend Jennifer Lyon Bell is presenting the Rated X Film Festival in Amsterdam, dedicated to alternative, artistic and radical erotica. The call for submissions is still open; I wonder if I can slap something together in time?

Meanwhile, the Sexy International Film Festival is touring around the world after a successful showing in Melbourne. They marketed themselves as being “not porn” but it’s still a step forward for Australia to have something like this.

I want to go to these things! And I want to make movies for them too. Just gotta get a bit more organised…

Meanwhile, my video mini-doco of the Berlin festival has been delayed while I wait for permission to use a couple of clips. Be patient, I’ll have it up on the blog next week, with a full version available at FTG.

  1. I’m so thrilled that Pornotopia is showing Good Dyke Porn™ in their showcase called none other than “Good Dyke Porn”.

    That’s so exciting that you were in Berlin. GDP was in Paris, but not Berlin this year. Sadly, I was at neither.

    Yay public porn!

  2. Congrats Bren! It’s great to see your work out there and getting noticed. And I’m sure we’ll meet up at a festival or show one of these days.
