SAN FRANCISCO — Tickets are now on sale for the 2022 San Francisco PornFilmFestival, set to unspool on PinkLabel.tv and in person at the Brava Theater Center, from Aug. 24-27.
„This collection of over 70 titles spans experimental to documentary genres, each pushing the definition of films that explore topics of sexuality,“ a rep said. „Attendees can look forward to an enthralling hybrid festival with post-screening filmmaker chats and a vibrant collection of well-crafted and thought-provoking erotic and adult films.
„Organizers present movies from the Bay Area and internationally in a festival that strives to push the genre and expand the cinematic landscape of sexuality,“ the rep added.
The festivities kick off online on Wednesday, Aug. 24 with the „Fore/Play“ program, a 24-hour offering of specially selected films on demand.
The sexual history of the Bay Area will be showcased through such titles as „Submission Possible: San Francisco,“ in which erotic artist Madison Young reunites a community of „sexual luminaries, misfits, artists, kinksters and activists“ such as Annie Sprinkle, Elizabeth Stephens, Midori and Cleo DuBois.
„Raw! Uncut! Video!“ chronicles the rise and fall of homegrown gay porn studio Palm Drive Video and explores how „a devoted couple helped battle a devastating health crisis by promoting kinky sex,“ the rep said, while „local favorites ‚East Bay Brats 4‘ by TroubleFilms and Filthy FemDom’s ‚Club Cuck‘ showcase the Bay Area’s contemporary BDSM porn producers.“
On Thursday, Aug. 25, artists will come together to chat at 11 a.m. PDT, „streaming online from across the seas“ in a filmmaker „Meet/Greet“ segment. Later that evening at 7 p.m., Fred Halsted’s 1974 „L.A. Plays Itself“ will lead off the Online Opening Film Showcase, preceded by early-2000s lesbian erotic classic „Hey Sailor, Hey Sister“ and followed by a live Q&A with festival director and queer filmmaker Shine Louise Houston.
