This week for ICYMIXXX, Peepshow draws attention to BIPOC-AIC‘s call for film submissions to the Black, Brown, & Blue Film Festival run by the BIPOC-AIC and Festival producer Tiana Glittersaurus Rex. The festival’s website promises a 2-day virtual event that will include films all day, an awards show, and a Q&A with iconic crossover adult performer Jeannie Pepper.
Here’s the call for submissions, word for word. Please follow the BIPOC Adult Industry Collective website for ongoing information.
The Black, Indigenous, and People of Color Adult Industry Collective (BIPOC-AIC) accepting submissions for its inaugural film festival, “Black, Brown, and Blue,” celebrating representations of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color on the blue screen. The deadline for submissions is February 10, 2021, at midnight EST.
All submissions should center BIPOC individuals, including those involved in pre- and post-production. Projects submitted should be a minimum of 10 minutes and a max of 30 minutes. Additional submission specs can be found on the festival website. Submissions can include any range of erotic poetry, striptease, masturbation, nudity, hardcore sex, kink, fetish, POV, or whatever creators find sexy, erotic, and fulfilling. All submissions must include a model release, 2257, & IDs for all participants. Forms are available on the “Black, Brown, and Blue” website for those in need.
The virtual film festival aims to center and elevate the artistic vision, experiences, and voices of people of color and their relationships with eroticism and sexuality. BIPOC-AIC encourages all self-identifying people of color to submit content, regardless of the filmmaker’s geographic location, native language, culture, gender identity, sexuality, age, body type, ability, or neurodiversity. The festival seeks creators in North America as well as those in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, South America, the Caribbean, Central America, and Europe. The goal is to create the most diverse and inclusive amount of erotic storytelling possible in a safe, secure, and welcoming independent digital space.
“Black, Brown, & Blue” promises the diaspora a safe, inclusive space to showcase representations of sex, love, relationships, and play among BIPOC & QTPOC without limiting creators to harmful, racial, sexual stereotypes.
Festival producer Tiana Glittersaurus Rex says, “Erotica and sexual self-expression of marginalized people are fundamentally policed around the world. We want to honor the past, present, and future of the erotic arts and their content creators!” Recently, in collaboration with production partners Domme Kat & Lola Jean, Rex produced the 2-day SW Survival Guide, sponsored by PornHub, offering advice on safety and security, production and content creation, marketing and branding, laws and legislation, and community.
“Black, Brown, and Blue” concludes on Monday night with a classic feature presentation and live Q & A with Industry icon, Jeannie Pepper. Immediately after the screening, we will announce the festival winners. First & second place in each category will receive cash prizes.
