Jennifer Lyon Bell in person

The Belgian feminist festival Stout(ste) Dromen (“Daring Dreams”) recently commissioned Jennifer Lyon Bell and Murielle Scherre to co-direct a feminist sex film and premiere it at their festival. What makes a sex film feminist? Weʼve noticed that in most sex film, the female point of view is omitted. What does the female character see, hear, feel? This film stars Wim and Floor, a devoted real-life young couple. Through the film, we aim to show not what their lovemaking looks like, but how it feels — especially to Floor.

Porn Film Festival Berlin presents: ‘Holocaust and Pornography’

The Porn Film Festival Berlin proudly presents a highlight of our previous programs so far. On December 8th at 18:30 you will be able to watch:

‘Stalags – Holocaust and Pornography’
Israel 2008, 63 min, Director: Ari Libsker

Stalags were pocket books whose plots revealed lusty female SS officers sexually abusing camp prisoners. During the 1960s, parallel to the trial held against Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmannl, sales of this pornographic literature broke all records in Israel and hundreds of thousands of copies were sold at kiosks. The popularity of the Stalags only declined after a much-reported trial, in which their authors were accused of distributing anti-Semitic pornography.
This film examines the notorious phenomenon, exposing the creators of this genre for the first time. It posits that the combination of pornography and the Holocaust also appears in canonic Holocaust litrature and continues to be a widespread part of the representation of the Holocaust in Israel today.

Awards & Thanks!

Dear Porn Friends!

The 5th Porn Film Festival Berlin 2010 closed on Sunday night with a record-breaking audience: during the four days 4,000 visitors came to the Moviemento cinema to watch our many-faceted program full of erotic, lusty, unsettling, progressive or touching films. The festival ended with the presentation of our movie awards.

A jury consisting of Courtney Trouble (San Francisco), Anna Span (London), and RP Kahl (Berlin) awarded Jan Soldat (Berlin) with the annual Short Film Award for Endlich Urlaub. The prize is sponsored by Blue Movie. Franzy Millarse’s Revanche 1 and Travis Mathews’ I Want Your Love were honorably mentioned.

Award Ceremony 'Best Short Movie'

The Erotic Lounge sponsored this year’s Best Feature Film Award. The members of the jury were Suzy Capo (Sao Paulo), Florence Fradelizi (Paris) und Yair Hochner (Tel Aviv). The award went to the Inside Flesh Collective (Katowice, Poland) for their film Carnal Fluidity. Its artistic and cinematographic vision of sex and its creativity enable the film to overcome conventional forms of sexual representation. The film Much More Pussy by Emilie Jouvet (Paris) received an honorable mention for its authentic portrait of a group of young, talented, and sexually freethinking women.

Award Ceremony 'Best Long Film'

The team of the 5th Pornfilmfestival Berlin would like to thank the wonderful audience, the fabulous guests, the fabulous crew of the Moviemento, all sponsors and helping hands, and everyone who contributed to make the festival such a great experience for all participants.
