Porn Film Festival Vienna 2023 proudly accepts entries on FilmFreeway, the world's #1 way to enter film festivals and creative contests.


“Pornography is human imagination in tense theatrical action; its violations are a protest against the violations of our freedom by nature.” ― Camille Paglia

2023 sees the festival return in April 12 - 16, 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 of boring cheesy mainstream porn - to proudly present feminist, queer & alternative 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 sixth edition will take place April 12-16, 2023 in various venues in Vienna. It will devote itself extensively to the daring question of what porn can be. We would love to receive films on topics that give us insight on sexual liberation, sex activism, sex work, intimacy, body/gender/ethnic diversity, feminist porn, the impact of internet porn on our sexuality, and of course, lots and lots of sex and fun!

We are very excited about your submissions!
