Call for Submissions for the Sex Work Film Fest (SAFF)

February 2, 2012 at 8:54 am Leave a comment

The Sex Work Film Fest is now accepting international entries for the 2012 festival, to take place in Hamburg, Germany in June.
The entry deadline is March 15th 2012.

Hamburg is a city widely known for its ‘redlight district’ and, like many other places, has a long history of sex work. Sex work is legal in Germany, which should guarantee that sex workers have the same rights as other workers. However, the reality is that many of the fights for sex workers’ rights remain the same as they are in countries where sex work is illegal. The current wave of gentrification in the city criminalizes and displaces many sex workers from their established working places.

This festival aims to give a strong voice to sex workers, showing a wide variety of films that represent sex workers’ lives and that address the debates and discussions around sex work all over the world.

We are interested in a wide variety of material: experimental, narrative, fictional, documentary, shorts, diy, activist, etc.
The festival welcomes relevant films from any period and any genre.

Entry Deadline: March 15th 2012
Preview Format: PAL or NTSC DVD
Submission Form: start download
