San Francisco PornFilmFestival returns as hybrid event for second year in a row

sanfrancisco pornfilmfestival 2022

The San Fransisco PornFilmFestival is set to return on August 24-27 this year, taking place both at the city’s Brava Theater and online.

If you’re unable to make it to California for the event, you can attend it virtually via a stream being organized by the independent erotic film streaming service The broadcast of the bash will be available to view online up until September 10, 2022.

Virtual festival passes cost $20 via Indiegogo, with theater passes costing $30.

“Unlike watching porn at home, viewing adult films in a theater is different. Audiences are asked to keep the sex on-screen and to hold any frisky business until after they’ve left the cinema. A diverse showcase of films presents a non-judgmental display with depictions of sexuality that can validate viewer’s own lives — or present potential to explore the unfamiliar,” the organization says.

A hybrid online/offline event taking place in San Francisco in August 2022, with tickets starting from just $20.

The festival, of which SEXTECHGUIDE is a sponsor, will be presented by Shine Louise Houston (pictured above), founder of the LGBTQ+ film studio Pink and White Productions. Organizers say the bash will involve “post-screening filmmaker chats and a vibrant collection of well-crafted and thought-provoking erotic and adult films.”

They added that this year films and discussions at the event will place focus on promoting sexual rights, and that the meet-up will also serve as an ode to adult cinematic history. Films set to be screened at the festival include classics such as LA Plays Itself, the 1972 gay porn film by Fred Halsted, and Hey Sailor, Hey Sister, the 1996 erotic lesbian film starring Miranda Vail and Troy C Hart.

The festival will close on August 27 with a screening of 2019 documentary This One’s For the Ladies, which looks at male strippers and “dick dancing” in the US.

The San Fransisco PornFilmFestival launched in 2020, inspired by the influential Porn Film Festival Berlin, which began in 2006.
