Programme

London Porn Film Festival 2018

Welcome to a packed programme filled with exciting and informative films from our Queer Feminist Film makers!

 

Local Heros

The British queer and feminist porn scene is blooming! So many new possibilities, from the students, to the emerging filmmakers, to the ambitious big projects bringing together experienced producers in new configurations. So quintessentially local, from the Turnpike Lane corner shop, to the Victorian cemetery, to the Regent’s Canal riverboat. This selection spotlights some of the most exciting new voices to emerge in London & UK in the past few years, our community, and the future of porn in our city.

These shorts will tie you up and blindfold you, treat you like meat, take you to the extreme and keep you there at our leisure. We trust that you know how to take it.

Latin American Post-Porn 

London Porn Film Festival is proud to host this selection from the dynamic Latin American feminist and queer porn scene, curated by Brazilian filmmaker and academic Érica Sarmet, gathering films spanning the last decade from countries such as México, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Chile and Peru. And the variety is huge. There are films here that deal with gender troubles, queerness, body patterns, the machismo culture, dictatorial pasts, estate violence, abortion legislation and blasphemy, but also melodramatic approaches that link pornography to love, partnership and intimacy.

Guest curator: Érica Sarmet

Érica Sarmet is a filmmaker, screenwriter, curator and academic film researcher from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She has a Master’s degree in Cinema and Audiovisual and a BA in Media and Cultural Studies, both from Federal Fluminense University, where she wrote an awarded thesis on Latin American post-porn, “Sin porno no hay posporno: body, excess and ambivalence in Latin America (2015)”, which will be published in 2019.

ALL THE BABES 

It takes a village to raise a perv. We are taught to believe that sex is a two person thing that happens behind closed doors; in fact, sex, like everything else, is social, and we rely on others for our sense of pleasure, our sense of humour and our sense of self. These shorts explore sex in all its collective glory, whether that be the trusty threesome, ritualistic gang-bangs, tinder-fuelled sexcapades or people coming together to discuss their sexuality and their work. These shorts prove that the more fingers, bodies, asses and mouths, the merrier!

Transhuman Romp 

Why be such a bore and limit yourself to just the human body? This collection ranges from hilariously weird fantasy freakery via glitchy cybernetic constructions to profound art meditations on the limits of human biology. Genitals that you can change at your whim or that detach from your body and escape, alien boxes with surprisingly human tongues, bodies that melt end meld into each other – it’s a veritable smorgasbord of the outer limits of sexual imagination.

Ariel’s Backlash Caning

Screening & Talk

 

 

 

 

We’re not taking it lying down 

Time to rise up! Britain’s draconian censorship laws – made even worse with the addition of unsafe, data-mining age checks this year – are hitting hard against the queer porn scene. That makes our whole festival a political protest at its core, but this programme zooms in on films that directly deal with the politics of porn itself. Channeling sex workers’ realities, challenges to the hegemony of commercial porn and raucous pornoanarchic protests, this a call to join us and take on the censorship laws head-on!

DIY Porn, Facilitated by Pandora / Blake

Whether it’s for distribution or simply for your own pleasure, creating your own DIY porn can be a way to empower and nurture yourself. Express yourself, enjoy your body, embrace your sexuality, and have fun! Do you want to see more porn that is queer, feminist, trans-positive, fat-positive, age-positive, ethnically diverse, or that features your exact kinks? Porn is political, so be the change you want to see in the world. This will be an hour-long talk and screening followed by Q&As, aiming to leave you with ideas and enthusiasm for shooting your own homemade porn.

Workshop length approx 90 minutes

Friday 12:00

 

 

FUCK THE FASCISM CONSPIRACY GATHERING

Fuck the Fascism is an anti-colonialist, porno-terrorist film project, exposing the truth about monuments that glorify genocide, tyranny and slavery – through the direct action of raping the stone bodies, the way they raped countries and people! With episodes already shot in Berlin, Paris and Rome, now it’s time to come conspire on how to take the porno-terrorism to the streets of London.

In an open workshop talk, founders Maria Basura and Jorge Benavides introduce the project to the audience, show previous episodes and share their experiences on the shootings. What kind of episode could we shoot in London? And why porn – what does porn films and colonial history have in common?

Workshop length approx 90 mins

Price for this is £10/£12 But, No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

Saturday 12:00
