Sexuality, politics, feminism and gender issues, seen through the pornographic lens

The Porn Film Festival Vienna was brought into existence in 2018, and started with posing an easy (yet strangely hard to answer) question: "What is porn?"

2019 sees the festival return on 4-8 April, still with the challenging objective to showcase and celebrate the colorful diversity of porn, and stimulate an open, societal debate. Its mission is to bring a genre back into the public sphere of the cinema that is usually locked away in private quarters. Its prime directive is to present the creativity and political possibilities of a defining (yet always hidden) part of society. The goal is to challenge prejudices and stereotypes.

The festival offers a film and theory program that breaks the monotony boring cheesy mainstream porn - to proudly presents feminist, queer & LGBTIQ* positions. The Porn Film Festival Vienna wants to create an open and welcoming space for reception, discussion, and reflection and to challenge and broaden horizons. Because porn can be: lustful, honest, friendly and self-determined!
The festival's second edition will take place April 4-8 2019 in various venues in Vienna. It will devote itself extensively to the daring question: "What is shame?"


Our crowdfunding backers get access to pre-sale tickets with the best seats in the house reserved exclusively for you. Every supporter gets a Porn Film Festival Vienna fan package which consists of a branded bag including a poster, postcards, sticker, and goodies.
