As summer enters its last weeks, the annual HUMP! submission deadline looms near. If you’ve ever wanted to dip your toes into porn-making or starring in an erotic film, HUMP! is the film festival for you. HUMP! accepts films from all across the spectrum of sexuality, gender identity, kink, and style — from softcore to hardcore, animated to live action. We love HUMP!, so we’re sponsoring again this year!
This year’s extra credit props are hula hoops and Mike Huckabee’s book God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy. Add these items to your film to show the audience your film was created especially for this year’s HUMP!.
Appearing in a film for HUMP! means getting to be a porn star in a movie theater — not on the internet. Winning films will be shown in Seattle and Portland, then in a national tour. This year, all filmmakers will receive a portion of the tour’s ticket sales. Audience ballots will also determine winners of Best Humor, Best Sex, Best Kink, and Best in Show — all of whom will receive cash prizes.
Films must be under 5 minutes in length and can be submitted digitally or physically. The deadline for submission is no later than Wednesday, September 30th at 3 p.m. Further instructions for submission can be found here.
