BRUSSELS’ PORN FILM FESTIVAL IS YOUR OPEN WINDOW TO CONTEMPORARY PORNOGRAPHY IN BELGIUM

Love it or hate it, it is undeniable that porn is here to stay. Or has it ever been away? More than just closeups and money shots, porn is the most watched and produced audiovisual genre in the world, showing a diversity as vast as human desire. As a rich counterculture phenomena, contemporary porn embraces new forms of expression and is used by marginalized groups not only as a way of creating and exploring new forms, fantasies and desires, but also as a powerful political and creative tool. Feminists, LGBTQI+, sex workers and other  minority groups choses to turn their cameras to their own bodies to create a presence usually ignored by mainstream media.

The BxlPFF is the first porn film festival in Belgium, presenting a diverse program going from arthouse films to DIY projects fuelled with a political desire to showcase different approaches, practices and bodies to the most watched and produced film genre in the world.

The festival is mainly focused on short films, but also presents a selection of feature films, panel discussions, professional encounters, art exhibitions, parties and more! For the 2023 edition, we have teamed up with  SNAP! Festival (Sex Workers Narratives Arts & Politics) to offer a bigger and powerfull edition brought by a will to create resistances!

The SNAP! Festival is dedicated to the discourse and representations created by sex workers operating in various sectors, from multiple gender and sexual perspectives. 

Why this collaboration? Individuals who are marginalized due to their erotic identities, gender, race, class, or bodily characteristics find in the production of sexually explicit content a powerful space for expression and reappropriation. Sex workers, who are longstanding pillars of the pornographic industry and social outcasts, occupy a crucial place in debates on these complex issues. Therefore, a collaboration between the BxlPFF and the SNAP! Festival seemed obvious!

We are here to destigmatize porn together, collectively in a movie theater!
