Edmonton’s ONLY queer, feminist, amateur porn festival.
We’re here, we’re queer, & we’re ready to takeover the prairies.
SMUTfest showcased smutty films, photos and other forms of art from folks in the Canadian prairies that are displayed and screened to over 100 SMUT-lovers.
We look to celebrate all gender identities & expressions, sizes, colours, (dis)abilities and sexualities. We give priority to folks who may consider themselves nonconforming in any way, and encourage them to submit.
We want to celebrate your work, not critique it, so there is no judging - as long as it fits within our guidelines (down below), you’re pretty much golden!
Whether it's a film, photos, or another type of art (poetry, installation, short story), it needs to be:
All parties, regardless of how big or small their role, MUST sign a consent form. We consider
anyone under the age of 18 to be non-consenting when it comes to submitting to this festival.
2) SOME FORM OF SMUT
This depends on your own comfort & desires - we are kink-positive!
3) SEX-POSITIVE or PLEASURE-POSITIVE
Recognizes any consensual sex acts, expressions, identities or desires to be valid and normal and free from shame.
4) NOT RACIST
Does your piece include items that are sacred to a culture that isn’t yours? Does your work use use Indigenous, Black, People Of Colour as punchlines? Does your piece include models or performers who are attempting to take on a piece of another culture’s identity but don’t actually have to live with the burden of systemic oppression that may face a member of that culture on a daily basis? Do NOT submit it to SMUTfest. In fact. Do not submit it anywhere. Unsure? Contact us!
4) MAXIMUM 10 MINUTES LONG
5) SOMETHING YOU'RE COMFORTABLE HAVING 100+ PEOPLE SEE!
Don’t worry - no pictures or filming will be allowed during the event, and your submission will either be returned to you or destroyed. We are committed to doing everything within our power to keep your nudes from being leaked!
