Event Details

The San Francisco Sex Workers Film and Arts Festival is a biennial event, established in 1999 to provide a forum for the accomplishments of sex worker film and video makers and to screen works about sex workers and the sex industries from around the world. The Sex Worker Festival provides an opportunity to recognize and honor prostitutes, dancers, porn performers and other sex workers, who have historically been a dynamic part of arts communities.

To date, the Sex Worker Festivals have screened nearly three hundred works and generated much interest in the media. In addition, the festival presents performances and events. Films and videos for the Festival focus on sex workers' rights; organizing efforts and working conditions for dancers; global sex work and sex work as a labor issue on the international agenda; sex workers as artists; anti-racism and anti-oppression in sex worker communities; sex work and gender identities focusing on LGB/transgender/queer sex workers; sex education, sex art, porn and erotica; and portraits of strippers, prostitutes, doms, madams and more. 

We highlight the artistic endeavors of workers in all aspects of the sex industry because whore culture is real, present and on a corner, in a bar, in a hotel or in a bedroom community near YOU.
