1st time gay sex: 10 things you shouldn't do

?

2013

The first time is never an easy one. That is what people think at least. A lot of questions and concerns appear in teenagers minds when they think about doing it. But no worries: The first time isn't that complicated or problematic since nobody would act as strange as the two guys in our comedy "10 things you shouldn't do... when you have sex with another man for the first time".

Greece / 5’
En pojke deals with masculinity as a regulatory identity that still manages to suppress the way a person creates, falls in love or has sex. Under the power of patriarchy every other, subversive, gender behavior seems sometimes like it is bound to suffocate.

Andrea. Un Melodrama Rioplatense

Edgar De Santo

2013

Argentina | 28 mins
¿Qué voz hay que tener?
"Poco podría contarles de particular acerca de mi historia si no fuera por los cambios que tuve a partir de mi pubertad. Cambios que en parte todos conocemos, que todos vivimos. Pero a veces la biología hace sus bromas. Y nuestra sociedad tiene bastante poco sentido del humor con ciertas cuestiones."
Con esta frase se nos presenta Andrea que nos llevará por un viaje diferente, por un paisaje actual, espeso. Los estereotipos, las citas, el humor ácido, la reflexión, la identidad, el amor, la muerte y los sueños construyen una obra donde el concepto de género, en sólo 30 minutos, arma un nuevo contrato con el espectador. 
Andrea: una voz imborrable para escuchar...como un mar.

Ending the Straight World Order

Mads Ananda Lodahl

2013

There is a 90% risk that you will get in trouble with the straight world order at some point in your life. It is a system that puts masculinity, traditional gender roles and men at the top of the chart, and not only homosexuals, bisexuals and trans*people are at risk. If we can find ways to end or weaken the straight world order we would all have something to win. But of course some would have more to win than others.
Mads Ananda Lodahl has spend the last 10 years writing articles and books and giving lectures at schools, universities and festivals with the purpose of destroying what he calls the straight world order, and making life easier for everyone in conflict with it.

Neurosex Pornoia is a queer, womanlesbiantrans*inter, diy project, initiated in Berlin 2013 by Eric Pussyboy and Abigail Gnash as a space of experimentation and learning around the possibilities of queer feminist porn. This vision is conected to wider international community of feminist filmmakers, pornographers, artists and activists, coming together in events such as the berlin pornfilmfestival or the entzaubert noncommercial diy film festival, and whose work inevitably feeds into this project. Within feminist queer porn, we were particularly interested in postporn as a genre that allows to explore sexuality and sexually explicit material, reclaiming the pornographic,  but not primarily seeking to be a turn on for the audience. We were also interested in the possibilities of the intersection of queerness and science fiction and biotechnofantasies.

Taking Our Chances

Matthew Feliss

2013

USA | 54 min
The film is comprised of 20 very personal interviews with gay men living in San Francisco—all of them 32 or younger - who Matthew either knew personally, had met online, or just out on the street. The first part of the film is set up as a kind of sexual cartography which tries to “map out the rough contours of sex,” what turns these guys on, who they have sex with, why do they have sex, etc. And then it moves on to explore how HIV fits within that map, how the picture gets complicated, where fear and ignorance enter the picture, where HIV is close in proximity, and what the circumstances around some folks’ seroconversion were.

The Choreopornography Trilogy

Quintet (2013 - 22 min)
Sonata (2015 - 10 min)

David Bloom

2013

A group of professional contemporary dancers in Berlin, who are also explorers of conscious sexuality, are invited by the choreographer David Bloom to use their experience making dance pieces to research and question the border between pornography and art in this short film.
How much sexual explicitness is allowed into a “serious” artistic dance piece? And how much time and space are allowed in pornography?
This is also a tribute to the experimental and sex-positive atmosphere of Berlin in the early 21st century, Quintet and Sonata bring together work with dance, movement & conscious sexuality to create a unique erotic visual experience.
