Queer Porn Film Festival, Brooklyn

Queer Porn Film Festival
The SPECTRUM
Brooklyn, NY
Queer Porn Film Festival

We’re excited to announce the first official Queer Porn Film Festival – a space to submerge yourself into art, sex, politics, queer life, queer luv, and queer lust.

As feminist artists with heavy DIY influences, we created the Queer Porn Film Festival to represent our own vision of an ALL DAY event designed for queerions, porn makers, porn stars, artists, and fans. 

CONFIRMED ARTISTS IN ATTENDANCE: STOYA, JIZ LEE, JULIE SIMONE, CHELSEA POE, APRIL FLORES, PAPI COXXX, COURTNEY TROUBLE, TOBI HILL-MEYER AND MORE!

please see http://queerpornfilmfestival.org for more info, schedule, and folks attending.

The Queer Porn Film Festival is built on values centering trans-feminism, accessibility, intentionality, and community based social justice. Our events and films shown will reflect that foundation through careful curation and thoughtful party planning. We hope this event serves as a starting point for others to get involved in queer feminist art and sex positive community.

brooklyn porno princess Jacqueline Mary hosts a Porn and Pancakes brunch, where you’ll start off the fest by getting fed and enjoying the first round of delicious queer porn shorts curated with an extra sprinkle of sugar by Courtney Trouble. This Brunch is gonna be SWEET!  (porn shown, vegetarian and vegan options, gf-free options, limited bar)

Then tuck your tweed hankys in and post up in our workshop curriculum, designed by the incredible porn activist Tobi Hill-Meyer. Learn the in and outs of porn making, listen in on a performer panel, or take in one of the generous skill shares QPFF has set up to motivate, inspire, and community build around queer art, porn, awareness, theory, and activism.  (some porn shown, advocates available, no bar, smoke free event)

Cozy up, because the QPFF Main Event is going to be the ultimate queer porno binge. queer porn icon courtney trouble has been archiving queer porn from all over the galaxy for the past ten years, and is putting together a definitive visual guide to all that is the queer porn movement: underground, experimental, political, artistic, hardcore, AND mainstream films will be screened in the form of one epic mix tape – with a kick ass soundtrack. Over 30 pieces will be shown highlighting obscure underground smut, important moments in queer porn history, established porn maker master works, obscene feminist manifestos, lost footage, experiments, glossy hollywood crossover hits, and even a few world premieres and in-person cameos from your all-time favorite queer porn stars. (entire event is XXX, no smoking in event room, full bar, content warnings will be offered before the program starts for potentially triggering material, mingle and break space available, advocates available, some subtitles will be shown)

After the main event, we invite you to stay for our down and dirty dark room after party – featuring a live public porn shoot where the viewers become the film makers, AND a queer porn open mic where you can screen your very own works! (no submissions necessary, just bring your finished work, 10 minutes or less, to the QPFF Main Event, and add your name and file/URL to the sign up sheet! all film-makers should be able to present their model releases if requested – just have them saved to your phone’s camera roll) 

The after party will be dark and sleazy, with virtual gaymous DJ playlists keeping you dancing, a full bar keeping you thirsty, and a room full of queer people who just watched a LOT of porn, including yourself… Whatever happens, remember to ASK FIRST and respect people’s boundaries and the event space, please!    

To make the space more accessible for attendees and organizers with MCS, please refrain from wearing any fragrances, scented shampoos, deodorant sprays, or other such products. Some but not all films will have subtitles. Couches will be available as accessibility prioritized seating.
