travel and parking
Reminder that Saturday is the University District Farmer’s Market (9 am – 2 pm) making parking more difficult to find right around the Grand Illusion Cinema, so make certain to give yourself enough time if driving.
And there is a HUSKIES game at the University of Washington at 7:30 pm on Saturday which will cause delays getting to the area.
I hope to see you at SECS FEST 2019. Arrive early and stay all day and enjoy hours of erotic cinema.
For SECS Fest 2019, we have a full day of cinematic offerings including three short film programs and one feature length queer, experimental erotic work. I’m confident that you will find the films that hit your personal sweet spot.
First, at 2pm on September 7th is our shorts program OUT OF THIS WORLD shorts. Spend 90 minutes in magical fantasy land of erotic explorations of encounters with witches, extraterrestrial life, and other worldly sensuality. There’s a short depicting an erotic extraterrestrial first contact, a coming of age story of gender switch, Princess Leia cosplay, and even a robot monster looking for love.
Then at 4:30 pm, I am excited to be screening the 90 minute feature film from AORTA Films, (W/HOLE).
“At turns lush, humorous, sincere, erotic, joyful, and intense, (W/HOLE) forsakes traditional expectations of porn to create an unexpectedly textured landscape of desire. Amidst ecstatic water balloon fights, opulent feasts devoured without utensils, narrations of pleasure, lewd hand gestures, densely scored orgies, improvisational performance, and intense kink dynamics, (W/HOLE) proposes a new type of pornography: a world of queer sex that is at once surreally lush and intensely real. The film celebrates queer pleasure as a type of queer resistance, while inviting viewers of all identities towards their own human capacity for pleasure.”
If you are looking for body-diverse queer feminist film that isn’t afraid to break boundaries, (W/HOLE) would be my first choice.
If you are looking for something a little darker and more forbidden with a splash or two of humor, KINK & CAKE might be just the treat you seek.
75 minutes of films focused on fetishes and deserts. Bondage, BDSM, ‘Sissy’ training, tattoos, and more served with a slice of metaphorical cake.
Tickets are only $12 / $10 (SECS Members) – Buy Now
Finally at 9pm, I am pleased to end the 2019 festival with LOVE LESSONS, a 90 minute shorts program that explores the human condition with humor and messages of self love, acceptance, and plenty of paint.
Find a short documentary about putting on a penis costume to spread sex-positivity, a first time, a relationship end, threesome negotiations, and the wonderful act of self-love. These films seek honesty and communication along with a fun retro public-service announcement from our friends at Spark Erotic.
And if you can’t pick just one, we also have passes available to SECS Members that grant admission to all four programs. And now becoming a Seattle Erotica Cinema Society Member is even easier. Just make a $50 donation at our new member Click and Pledge site and you will not only receive the secret code to allow you to purchase a pass, but you will receive discounts at all of our events held throughout the year.
The Festival will include three short film programs and one feature length porno. This year all of the films are new and include creations from independent filmmakers, indie porn companies, some found archival footage of an Italian porn star, fetish films, bondage films, dramatic tales self-love and acceptance, and so much more.
Tickets are $12 / $10 (SECS Members) and are on sale now.
SECS Fest 2019 is just around the corner. And we are excited to announce that the film selections have been made and we will be publishing the full line up of erotic short films and features here in the next few days.
Congratulations to all of the filmmakers who submitted their new erotic works for inclusion in the festival. Notifications were sent on July 11. If you submitted, please check in at filmfreeway.
Our final event before SECS Fest (September 6 & 7), will be a compilation of some of our favorite erotic short film that played previous SECS Festivals.
