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.  The festival includes short films, features, documentary, experimental, 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.

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 an archival Fred Halsted double-feature.

Additionally, the festival will have a live virtual simulcast thanks to the work of Pink and White Productions at PinkLabel.TV.

Tickets will go on sale at 8 AM on August 25th at Stranger Tickets.
