Submissions open for SECS Fest 2023 soon!

Planning for SECS Fest 2023 has begun.

SECS Fest 2023 will be held November 10-12 at the Grand Illusion Cinema.

We will be accepting erotic film submissions from February 1, 2023  – June 30, 2023. Please visit to submit.

For those curious about the kinds of films the festival takes into consideration for the festival each year, we first of all seek to meet our mission statement.

SECS FEST is a sex-positive international film festival celebrating the artistry of erotic cinema while inspiring diverse communities to engage in adult conversations about sex.

Films can be short subjects or feature length. They can be any genre (drama, experimental, comedy, horror, documentary, science fiction, fantasy, animation, etc.) and represent any sexuality or form of sexual expression. Kinky films, queer films, romantic films… if you can imagine it, we want to see it.

The only limitation is that films should focus on sexuality and have a sex-positive perspective.

I cannot wait to see you and your films at SECS Fest 2023 in November.

Submissions for SECS Fest 2022 are now closed

An audience watches an old movie of a man wearing a suit and hat embracing an undressed woman.

Now SECS Fest volunteers will be busy watching all of the amazing submissions to decide what will be at the festival on November 4-6.

Thank you to all who submitted their work to the festival!

From what I’ve seen so far, it will be a very packed weekend of erotic cinema. Meaning it will be even more challenging to choose as there are so many great films and there won’t be time to show them all.
