Seattle Erotic Cinema Society announces SECS Fest erotic film festival Sept. 7-9

SECS FEST GRAND ILLUSION CINEMA September 7-9

The Seattle Erotic Cinema Society announces their second erotic film festival, SECS Fest, September 7th-9th, 2018. The festival will feature new short and feature films from around the world, and will include 2 archival films. SECS Fest has compiled a diverse international selection of new short films and two feature length films that reflect the diversity of human sexual experience. Presented alongside the modern program will be two archival films introduced by film scholar, David Church, PhD.

Attendees can expect to experience a range of film genres, sexual orientations, and sexual activities. Both narrative and documentary films will showcase a variety of interests - sexual curiosity and anxiety, fetishes, BDSM, sex work and more. Special attention is given to films that defy audience expectations for sexually explicit films, that some believe are inherently sexist and hetero-centric. SECS strives to include films made by and depicting underrepresented populations, reaching beyond today's mainstream adult cinema, to bring you a more inclusive sex-positive program.

Opening night, on Friday, September 7th will kick off with the Northwest Premiere of Fantasy, a drama-comedy feature about a couple's journey through surreal sex therapy exercises in order to strengthen their relationship.

The weekend will include several shorts programs with a variety of themes. Our 'Sex Work' shorts program will include both documentary and fictional narratives by and about sex workers. Our 'Femme Is Fierce' program featuring films exploring the feminine side of erotic fantasies will world premiere Spark Erotic's Heaven with a Q&A post screening. Our 'Angst' shorts collection navigates films about sexual anxiety and fear and will world premiere local filmmaker Craig Downing's What We Want.

Saturday, September 8th, will feature the USA premiere of ISVN, which takes a glimpse into the life of porn star Valentina Nappi. Part documentary, part experimental and fully explicit, our second feature is sure to please any fan of Nappi.

We will close the festival on September 9th with our 'Real and Surreal' shorts program, which will include the world premiere of Gush - a documentary that is sure to have festival attendees leave the theater in discussion or, at the very least, Google searching. Our closing program will include a Q&A with Gush's director Kate Sinclaire and star Ciel, alongside the cast and crew of Spark Erotic's The Pickup. The complete lineup for SECS Fest 2018, including all feature films and shorts, is currently online at secsfest.org.

All film screenings will be held at the Grand Illusion Cinema, 1403 NE 50th St., in Seattle's U-District. Individual event tickets are available for $12/General, $10/SECS members. They can be purchased online at secsfest.org. No one under 18 admitted.

About Seattle Erotic Cinema Society
The Seattle Erotic Cinema Society was founded by the Foundation of Sex-Positive Culture and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. SECS hosts an ongoing monthly series showcasing films that celebrate the artistry of erotic cinema while also inspiring diverse communities to engage in adult conversations about sex.

SECS Fest aims to bring world-class erotic cinema to Seattle audiences in an annual festival including short films, features, documentary, and archival films. With an attention to selecting films that are inclusive of authentic adult sexual expression, the films will show a diversity of representations: race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, kink, body-type and standards of beauty, age, and ability. And it is through the exhibition of authentic sexualities alongside opportunities for audiences to participate in discussions and post-screening Q&A sessions that the festival can act as a catalyst for honest, nonjudgmental conversations and the spreading of sex-positive values.
