San Francisco PornFilmFestival Opens Call for Submissions

SAN FRANCISCO — Pink & White Productions and organizers of the 2021 San Francisco PornFilmFestival have announced an open call for submissions. The event will return for the second year as a hybrid of virtual and in-person events November 11-28.

Adult and erotic films of all country origins, languages, lengths and release dates are eligible for consideration. The early-bird deadline is April 10, with a final deadline of April 30. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by July 1.

"When the San Francisco PornFilmFestival launched in 2020, its debut was envisioned as a two-day theatrical event; however, the COVID-19 pandemic forced organizers to quickly adapt and take the festival entirely online," explained a festival rep. "It then bloomed into a five-day virtual attraction, streaming over 90 films in seven programs, with audience Q&As, filmmaker talks and on-demand content reaching more than 1,500 viewers worldwide."

"Thanks to the overwhelming success of a crowdfunding campaign championed by sextech and adult film communities, the virtual festival was developed and powered in-house by the company's adult film streaming platform"

As vaccinations increase throughout California and the world, festival organizers expressed optimism about returning to in-person programming as originally planned.

"Going digital granted accessibility benefits for organizers, artists and audiences alike, and proved that online screenings are well worth repeating, even when it is once again safe to go to the theater," noted the rep. "Therefore, organizers are planning a hybrid virtual/cinema festival that captures the best of both screening experiences."

In-person cinema screenings, meet-ups and other physical activities will take place in San Francisco according to current COVID health and safety guidelines.
