Arse Elektronika 2009 Film Festival: "Of Intercourse and Intracourse"

The 2009 Arse Elektronika Festival is coming to San Francisco October 1-4, 2009. On October 1, we'll be holding the first Arse Elektronika Film Festival at the Roxie Theatre, and we would like you to participate.

Arse Elektronika is focused on sex and technology, and we are looking for films that express a vision of that intersection. Documentary or dramatic, short or feature-length, live-action or animation, experimental or narrative, explicit or not, any presentation is fascinating as long as it brings out a new way of thinking about how humanity as a sexual creature and as a tool-using animal combine.

Submission Details

Send in submissions here. Films of any length (up to 90 minutes) will be considered. We'll need to receive all materials, including a DVD of the movie, by August 31, 2009.

We may not forget that mankind is a sexual and tool-using species. And that's why our annual conference Arse Elektronika deals with sex, technology and the future. As bio-hacking, sexually enhanced bodies, genetic utopias and plethora of gender have long been the focus of literature, science fiction and, increasingly, pornography, this year will see us explore the possibilities that fictional and authentic bodies have to offer. Our world is already way more bizarre than our ancestors could have ever imagined. But it may not be bizarre enough. "Bizarre enough for what?" -- you might ask. Bizarre enough to subvert the heterosexist matrix that is underlying our world and that we should hack and overcome for some quite pressing reasons within the next century.
