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.
SECS Fest aims to bring world-class erotic cinema to Seattle audiences in an annual festival including short films, features, documentary, and archival films. With an attention to selecting films that are inclusive of authentic adult sexual expression, the films will show a diversity of representations: race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, kink, body-type and standards of beauty, age, and ability. And it is through the exhibition of authentic sexuality alongside opportunities for audiences to participate in discussions and post-screening Q&A sessions that the festival can act as a catalyst for honest, non-judgmental conversations and the spreading of sex-positive values.
SECS FEST 2021 will return to the silver screen at the Grand Illusion Cinema on September 10-12. There will be 4 Feature films, 30 Short films, and a Fred Halsted double-feature, LA Plays Itself and SEXTOOL.
Additionally, the festival will be broadcast live thanks to the work of Pink and White Productions at PinkLabel.TV.
