Narcissism  (2022)

Toni Karat , GER

Time: 90 min

Documentary about gender, narcissism and self-love.


How do we look into the mirror? Do we allow ourselves a narcissistic or even covetous view? And how is it influenced by our gender and socialisation: Are we able to love ourselves and our reflection? And why do lesbians often have an especially difficult relationship with narcissism?


These are some of the questions Toni Karat is exploring in this project, by capturing each protagonist‘s intimate view in the mirror at an old and untouched attic from 1929. This film was the Opening Film and won the Best Documentary award of the Berlin Pornfilmfestival 2022, Secs Fest 2022, Seattle (US) and of the Porn Film Festival Vienna (AUT) 



Acts of Love (2021)

Isidore Bethel, FRA

Time: 71 min

Documentary fiction hybrid film


When his relationship with an older man in Mexico starts to wane, Bethel, who performs as himself in the film, travels to Chicago. He chats with hundreds of men on dating apps and invites them to make a film with him. A dozen meet him for an interview, and four agree to write and perform in a fictional film that their original conversations inspired.

Meanwhile, passages combining still images and voiceover from Bethel recount memories about the former lover. Throughout, the filmmaker's mother phones him to critique and ridicule her son's unusual project.

Barbara Hammer
Short films
(1974 - 1987)

Time: 77 min

Short film program, Retrospective

BH_V_1973_Menses - 25.jpg

Barbara Hammer was born in Hollywood in 1939. Her documentaries and experimental films are among the earliest and most comprehensive depictions of lesbian identity, love, and sexuality. For more than five decades, Hammer was an increasingly influential voice of queer feminism, and a chronicler of women's self-empowerment in the U.S. and many other places around the world. Following film retrospectives at New York's MoMA in 2010, Tate Modern, London in 2012, and her first solo exhibitions at KOW beginning in 2011, the art world began to take an interest in Hammer's now historic body of work, which includes performances, installations, and works on paper. Numerous institutional exhibitions and successes followed, and today Hammer is considered one of the greatest examples of politically engaged feminist art. Hammer was a teacher for many years and held a professorship at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee (CH). She passed away in 2019.

Shall I compare you to a summer´s day? (2022)

Time: 66 min

Skjermbilde 2023-08-07 kl. 17.38.26.png

Gay, Poly, Musical

Two men meet in a club or a bar: one of them is Egyptian, the other hails from Latin America. The attraction is instant, and sexual intercourse follows soon after. After their lovemaking in between the late hours of the night and early dawn, as is befitting of a Shakespearean tale, they start talking about their love lives. One of them has led a rather polyamorous life, while the other is still only discovering himself. A future in which both commit to each other, in which they don’t drag their own damaged lives into this bond, seems impossible.

This is an experimental assortment of dialogues, interviews and songs, straying from the main plot or complementing it in abstract fashion.

There are a lot of myths about sex parties. Let's debunk them with one of the organizers of Juicebox, Amy. She hosts sex parties exclusively for women. Is it as wild and crazy as one imagines, or is there some sort of depth and innocence to it as well? Alongside sex educator Clare and BDSM/ Kink mentor Christiane, we will deep dive into subjects like why boundaries are so hard to maintain for so many people, and how sexual spaces can actually help us establish clearer and healthier relationships.

In a neighborhood of a city in Brazil, real estate speculation has become a threat to the affective memory of a group of friends. The only answer to the imminent transformations is sex: outdoors, in playgrounds, quarries, empty apartments, in all the places that will disappear or be transformed, but will always belong to those who live there. And love? Is love, too, a work in progress?



RULE34 (2022)

Time: 100 min


Straight, Queer, Self Pleasure

Rule 34 Simone 23-year-old studies criminal law and advocates for women's rights and at night she performs in front of a live sex cam. One night watching a film awakens her dark impulses for a more dangerous means of sexual gratification. Torn between observing everyday gender violence and her own erotic desires, Simone is faced with a real existential dilemma. In a world radically different from that of university classrooms and accompanied at a distance by her friend Nat (Isabela Mariotto), the protagonist of Rule 34 begins to experiment with sexual practices linked to the BDSM universe. Accompanied in her nocturnal experiments by her friends-lovers Lucia (Lorena Comparato) and Coyote (Lucas Andrade), Simone seems unconcerned about the risks involved in practices in which reality and fantasy become dangerously confused.Winner of the Golden Leopard for Best Film at the Locarno Film Festival 2022.

PolyNorge er en interesseorganisasjon som har fokus på relasjonsmangfold i det norske samfunnet. Vi lever i et svært normstyrt samfunn med streng sosial kontroll. Det norske samfunnet er pr i dag svært mono-normativt. Mennesker som føler de ikke passer inn i forventningene om hvordan kjærlighetsliv og relasjoner bør se ut, føler seg ofte fremmedgjort. Foreningen ble opprettet for å gi nettopp disse individene en stemme, et trygt miljø og for å jobbe for et varmere og mer inkluderende samfunn.

A gritty representation of the Berlin club culture and the sexiness and fun of it. Berlin nightclub scene is known for its freedom and sexiness—the place to leave your inhibitions behind and let your inner desires take over. There's something so intuitively primal about learning about someone through their glance, scent, taste, and the feeling of being literally inside each other before anything else. There's a magic to this queered inversion of intimacy—fuck first, then meet. 

Darkrooms are not for everyone; some still enjoy privacy despite their love for public-adjacent sex. Toilet stalls are a favorite; with all the multi-level positions, you become more of an organism than a human—an audible exhibitionist's dream unfolding, cumming to the sound of your one-night lover(s).

A lysergic and erotic journey between girls who do not accept imposed limits. Between caresses and orgasms, they build new universes of pleasure and self-affirmation, in which the only rule is the ecstasy of the bodies.

Cum as You Are

Hanna Schaich (GER)

Time: 12 min


Yelled at as a spectators we are asked to explore thought rooms and possibilities of different futures - What if in supposedly individually experienced mental and physical wounds lies the collective energy for resistance? What if we squirt, dance, eat, whip away a society cramped in shame and norms? Or even abolish it? What if the anger of all fighters, who live in existing and past patriarchal structures, who had to endure them, who suffered from them or have come to death by them, what if that anger became an overwhelming, transforming energy turning us into freed, unadjusted and loud people, ready for a positive change? Then we fight for uncompromised being. For love freed from shame. For life as it could be. Alive origiastically.

Fasten your seat belts on this horny ride through Wild-Wild-Witch-Clity-City.
