OE is the first ever erotic film & art festival held in the northern region. Norwegian culture has had a tremendous growth for the last decades, funding its society and culture with values based on democracy and diversity. Sexual liberation is a natural part of that evolution and process, and cultural mediums as in art and music are natural front runners in taking the next steps.
What's up OE?
From cinema to art, sauna to club, talks to food. Let's have a closer look at what the festival has to offer.
SALT Art & Mucic
SALT is a cultural arena located next to the fjord in the heart of Oslo, overlooking the Oslo Opera House and the Munch museum. With six saunas and six stages, as well as both indoor and outdoor serving areas offering food and drinks. SALT is a vibrant area where everyone is welcome.
Healing through Art
Our purpose is to use art and film to regain connection to emotionality and intimacy within sex, as a counter measure to all the mainstream porn culture and representation on social media. Through a focus on diversity within body, sexuality, gender, age and ethnicity we are expanding the norms and building real ideals of who we are as an society. Let erotic art be linked to curiosity and safety, as a way to get to know ourselves and others on a deeper level.
Curated by one of the upcoming names to be known in film, Helene Eggen, a selection of worldwide directors and their works will be presented. Together with names such as Erika Lust, Noel Alejandro, Toni Karat and many more we screen films parallel in two cinemas through the day and night.
