The HUMP! Film Festival is coming to Atlanta on May 30th! Marketed as an amateur porn film festival, HUMP! was established by Dan Savage in 2005 to enable individuals and couples to explore and share their sexuality through filmmaking.

Since 2005 the HUMP! Film Festival has challenged ordinary people from all over the Pacific Northwest to become temporary, weekend porn stars by making their very own five-minute dirty movies for a chance to win big cash prizes—and they did not disappoint! The resulting short films run the gamut of sexual styles: straight, gay, lesbian, transgender—every color in the sexual rainbow—and some we never knew existed.

“We bill HUMP! as an amateur porn festival,” says festival curator Dan Savage. “But it’s more than that. It’s rare for people to watch porn that takes them outside their comfort zones—it’s rare for people to watch porn that, if they were home alone in front of the computer, they wouldn’t choose to click on and watch. At HUMP! straight people watch gay porn, vanilla people watch kinky porn, gay people watch lesbian porn. And people laugh, they gasp, sometimes they cover their eyes. But at the end of every film people clap and cheer. It’s moving and wonderful and newcomers don’t expect it. The whole festival is a celebration of sexual diversity.”

HUMP! films are funny, thought-provoking, sad, artistic, outrageous, and almost overwhelmingly sexy—because they’re real. And they’re real because they were created and performed by sex-positive people, just like you. The festival will showcase 20 of the hottest HUMP films that are sure to make you laugh, squeal, and marvel at the broad (and creative) range of human sexuality.
