Your Festival Experience

Our festival will be held from June 10-21, 2023 with all films, live panels, performance pop-ups and open mic nights being on and available during this time.

We’ve extended our festival dates so that you now have 21 days to watch, enjoy, experience and take part in all of our juicy, connected and erotic content.

During this time you may want to connect with other festival participants, share about your experience or feel inspired to share your personal story, erotic fantasies or creative ideas for films, poetry or stories – which is why we’re bringing in a community forum right here, inside the festival.

You’ll be able to connect directly with festival support and other festival participants.

We’ve also listened to your feedback and our festival director, Ilsa, has made a creative direction decision to adjust our categories to be in line with our company values. This year you’ll be able to watch films across 3 new categories: Art & Abstract, Sensual & Explicit

Celebrating eroticism and sexuality goes beyond the superficiality of skin colour, genital configuration and sexual orientation. EROTICA aims to support a culture of intimacy, connection and healthy erotic expression through values of consent & authenticity.

This is what you’ll find and experience this year. Enjoy!
