Event Details

The San Francisco Bay Area Sex Worker Film & Arts Festival has provided a forum for sex worker film and video makers since 1999. The Festival has since expanded to become a vibrant venue for performances, workshops, visual arts, political organizing, skills sharing and ever expanding events for sex workers from San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley and from around the world. We proudly support our Bay Area communities as we welcome sex workers, friends, families and allies, showcasing the work of sex worker artists. The Sex Worker Festival recognizes and honors prostitutes, dancers, porn performers and other sex workers from diverse communities, who have been dynamic and integral members of arts communities since time immemorial.

Each Festival season presents a full program of events including long running favorites such as 'Whores Bath' and 'the Institute of Sexworkology,'  as well as political panels on a range of issues such as the impact of anti-trafficking policies. We also organize politcal actions and and opportunities for sex workers to interface with local government. The Festival also features spoken word events and theatrical events. We have presented workshops on a range of topics including intersectionality and theatrical peformance workshops. We have partnered with local organizations including the St. James Infirmary, SWAG, Red Light Legal, Sins Invalid and many more to produce events and screenings.

The San Francisco Bay Area Sex Worker Film and Arts Festival focuses on Bay Area sex workers and their communities, and supports sex worker artists and producers from the Bay Area. Our primary audience includes local communities, as well as a broad public audience within the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Sex Worker Festival shares our work on a national and international basis through an online movie archive, assistance curating festivals around the world and through distribution of literature about sex worker arts.

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.
