a sex-positive international film festival celebrating the artistry of erotic cinema while inspiring diverse communities to engage in adult conversations about sex.
Announcing upcoming Best of SECS Fest 2021 screenings #ShortFilms #EroticFilm
Did you miss the festival last September? Or do you want to revisit some favorites?
For the 2021 festival, we were fortunate to have some film students from Indiana University help jury the festival selections. So they put together two collections of short films and one feature in a Best of SECS Fest – Midwest event, so we are going to play the same programs for our local audience.
Coming to Seattle at the Grand Illusion Cinema in March is the first shorts collection in our Best of SECS Fest 2021 series, Best of SECS Fest 2021: Carnal Delights and in April will be Best of SECS Fest 2021: Holes & Wholes.
You will now want to miss these sexy-fun selections of short films from around the globe.
These playful short films explore the lighter side of sex, themed around food, fun, friendship, and laughter. Featuring splashes of absurdist humor, unexpectedly creative relationships, and improvisational pleasures, there’s something for everyone here! The program concludes with the featurette Wild Card (Jennifer Lyon Bell, 2020), starring Bishop Black and Kali Sudhra.
These thought-provoking shorts explore the more serious side of sex, with themes of trust, transformation, healing, nature, and the universe. Ranging from magical-realist fantasies to documentaries to poetic essays, these films all use sex to think through personal, philosophical, and metaphysical issues, stimulating your mind as much as your body. Contains unsimulated sex and nudity.
