Unlike mainstream porn, the CUM2CUT Indie-Porn-Short-Movies-Festival
focuses on the activities of the international independent and
countercultural queer movement and presents a platform where artists,
filmmakers, djs, actors and everyone interested can collaborate.
The CUM2CUT Indie-Porn-Short-Movies-Festival has developed in
collaboration with the Berlin Porn Film Festival
http://www.pornfilmfestivalberlin.de, the first porn film festival in
the city of Berlin.
The CUM2CUT Indie-Porn-Short-Movies-Festival is an independent
pornography competition. It is a three day marathon in which
participants are invited to realize a short film in the city of Berlin,
which will be shown during the Berlin Porn Film Festival.
The main idea is to connect a heterogeneous and international network of
people who want to create art independently and to freely express their
sexuality. Therefore, CUM2CUT is a networking platform which aims to
create open and free artistic networks where people can address the
topic of pornography without being marginalized.
CUM2CUTt is also an opportunity for participants to play with concepts
of sexuality and pornography by producing and enjoying
indie-porn-short-movies: the best short-movies you'd want to make and to
watch. The idea is to broaden possible imaginaries and "desirescapes"
related to pornography!
In cinematography pornography is usually considered a subcategory: in
CUM2CUT it magically comes to centre stage!!!
The short-movies must be completely shot in Berlin after the opening
party to promote and enjoy the pleasure of sharing pornography all over
the city. This is the D.I.Y game!
The concept of play is directly linked to CUM2CUT: body-games and sex
toys are the starting point for subverting mainstream expression of
pornography, through the practice of détournement.
Cum2Cut aims to reach those who are fed up with mainstream pornography,
who are frustrated by tolerating the rules of normalized society. At the
same time, CUM2CUT provides a critical perspective on political
imagination and rejects the notion that radical politics must always be
boring and serious.
CUM2CUT proposes an experimental concept starting from bodies and space,
spreading pornography as clouds of pollen to eroticize the city of
Berlin, mixing up fluid bodies, nomad identities and playful sexualities.
The CUM2CUT Indie-Porn-Short-Movies Festival is open to queer, homo,
hetero, lesbo and transsexual independent video- and filmmakers,
pornographers, performers, screenwriters, directors, queer cultural
activists and artists, free thinkers, excited minds and all the people
that like to mix technology and bodies.
The purpose is to develop ideas on film production and to share them
with an interested community for a participatory exchange.
