Alyx Fox to Be Featured at 11th Annual Porn Film Festival Berlin

BERLIN — Alyx Fox, founder and director of Foxhouse Films, will present a selection of her films as Filmmaker in Focus at the 11th Annual Porn Film Festival Berlin, to be held in Berlin, Germany from Oct. 26-30.

The screening will be held at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29 at Kino Moviemento in Berlin-Kreuzberg. Framed by panel discussions, lectures, readings, workshops, exhibitions, performances and parties, the Porn Film Festival Berlin — described by a spokesperson for Fox as “one of the largest film-centered conversations on sexuality worldwide” — spans five days and screens an average of 100 films. 

“The Filmmaker in Focus program has honored many of the most risk-taking visionaries in erotic film, and Fox is no exception,” her spokesperson said.

Fox’s independent studio Foxhouse Films, since opening more than two years ago, has produced 17 titles. Several of them, including “Cheat on Chelsea” and “Hot For Vicky,” topped AEBN’s trans charts. Foxhouse’s “Whore Hole,” featuring straight, cisgender performers, was listed amongHotMovies' "Best in Porn" for 2015. 

“Remarkably, Fox has created wide artistic and commercial appeal for her films while challenging conventions in her choice of subjects and her treatment of performers,” a spokesperson for the Foxhouse founder said. “Her respectful inclusion of trans and non-binary performers and her polysexual approach to casting and directing is still the exception in an industry that tends toward rigid categorization in spite of rapidly evolving understanding around sexual and gender identities.”

Other Foxhouse releases have included “3 By Three” and “Fire Escape,” which features a sex scene shot on a fire escape. Foxhouse’s releases have have been featured at film festivals such as Cinekink, MIX NYC, PopPorn, the NYC Porn Film Festival and the Oslo Fusion Film Festival. 

“Fox is one of the first transgender women to earn recognition as Filmmaker in Focus and one of the only post-op transsexual women performers in the film industry,” a spokesperson said. “Because she is foremost recognized as a female performer and director whose subject matter extends far beyond the trans porn niche, her career has helped to demarginalize and open new opportunities for trans women in film.”

“Filmmaker in Focus: Alyx Fox” will feature four of her films: “Silver Star” from 2014, “Femmephilia” from 2015,” “Hole Milk” from 2015 and “Squirt Machine” from 2016.
