Anticipation is building for #SECSFest2021

It has been a long year filled with uncertainties, but at this time, despite the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, we are still planning on holding the annual Seattle Erotica Cinema Society’s Annual International Erotic Film Festival on September 10 – 12 at the Grand Illusion Cinema in Seattle.

There will be an in-person festival at the Grand Illusion Cinema. In addition, there will also be a live simulcast of the festival hosted by Pink & White Productions.  Passes for both the live-stream virtual festival and the festival at the Grand Illusion will be on sale in mid-August. Individual tickets will also be available for in-person shows at the Grand Illusion. se

The full schedule for the festival has been posted so that you can have an idea what will be included in the 2021 festival.


The full-list of films including 30 short films, 4 features, and two archival films from Fred Halsted are posted and updated as we have more details.


Now, we just need to continue to get vaccinated so that COVID-19 cases do not continue to rise in the Seattle area and we will be able to hold the festival in September. So tell your friends to get vaccinated so that we can enjoy erotic film in person this fall.

Calling all filmmakers

It’s that time of year again. The Seattle Erotica Cinema Society is in the process of planning for SECS Fest 2021. We are hopeful that COVID-19 will be under control soon and therefore we may be able to hold an in person festival in Seattle in September. So in preparation, we will open film submissions on January 4, 2021.

You can find all of the details on eligibility and important deadlines on our submissions page at or on our page at

We’re looking forward to see what filmmakers have been up to during the global pandemic. Perhaps some are just looking for an excuse to finish pre-pandemic films.
