MORE THAN TWO (Shorts Program)
This collection of shorts explores a range of minglings that move beyond the traditional couple construct...polyamory, swinging, just "open." Sometimes successfully, sometimes not so much.
Monkey Lion and the Wolf
A pansexual fable, set in a primeval forest. Monkey Lion was master of the chase, but his charms and his pride could not prepare him for the coming of the Wolf. (Directed by Nara Denning, 2014, USA, 8 minutes. World premiere.)
The Ethical Slut
Bridging the gap between middle-class reality and the sexually-liberated underworld, this web series, inspired by the infamous book of the same name, follows Dotty and Jackie as they navigate the world of polyamory. (Directed by Ben Fritz, 2015, USA, 21 minutes. Stars Melissa Nearman and Betsy Cruise.)
The delicious pleasure of breakfast in bed and other surprises. (Directed by Urvashi, 2106, USA, 11 minutes. Stars Satya, Avalon and Julian.)
Four-Day Weekend
A middle-aged couple, married for twenty-three years, takes a four-day break from each other. The aftermath leaves their relationship shaken and tested. (Directed by Nicole Jones, 2016, USA, 20 minutes. Stars Ben Koldyke and Nicole Jones.)
Like Totally Hot Couple Seeking Same
Isabelle and Jean Luc are a normal, uptight, Parisian couple in search of a way to spice up their marriage. So they travel to the one place in the world known for its debauchery...Williamsburg, Brooklyn. (Directed by Marcel Simoneau & Kirsten Russell, 2015, USA, 17 minutes. Stars Celine Perra, Roger Contebardo, Marcel Simoneau and Kirsten Russell.)
Been Too Long at the Fair
A longtime patron recalls his erotic encounters at the Fair Theater, revealing how this New York institution has managed to stay open and serve its gay clientele for over 35 years. (Directed by Charles Lum & Todd Verow, 2015, USA, 6 minutes.)
"Sometimes in a relationship you need to shake things up a bit."
(Directed by Ms. Naughty, 2017, USA, 6 minutes. Stars Lina Pembe, Parker Marx and Rooster. US premiere.)
** Expected to be on hand for a post-screening Q&A are Chris Cocholo ('Monkey Lion & the Wolf'), Ben Fritz ('The Ethical Slut'), Charles Lum ('Been Too Long at the Fair'), Kirsten Russell ('Like Totally Hot Couple Seeking Same') and, Uryashi, Cortez and Kama from Spark Erotic ('Daybreak')!

KINK & COMMUNITY (Shorts Program)
There are many tastes and predilections that make up the world of kink. Here, a sampling of just a few ... and the museum that strives to document them all!
Spank You Very Much
An original song celebrating the joys of spanking. (Directed by Thomas Florek, 2016, USA, 3 minutes.)
Folsom Street
A kink and fetish-fueled dance explosion in celebration of the Folsom Street Fair.
(Directed by Aron Kantor, 2015, USA, 6 minutes.)
You've Got Tail
A mail carrier is in for a salty surprise. The pups at this house are a little friendlier than he was expecting... (Directed by Danny Tayara, 2016, USA, 4 minutes. Stars Ari Chivukula, Azure Blank, Foster Larson (Pup Kero) and Wolf Pup Tibor. New York premiere.)
Playing Scrabble
A couple explores their fantasies through a very kinky game of scrabble. (Directed by Jessie Sparkles, Paradoxipus & The Linguist, 2016, USA, 5 minutes. New York premiere.)
Coming of Age
The planned Daddy-Son-Afternoon turns into a conversation about male role models – until the roles get fixed again. (Directed by Jan Soldat, 2016, Germany, 13 minutes. US premiere.)
Please May I Come Mistress?
A gorgeously intimate scene of loving dominance and orgasm control between two real-life BDSM play partners. (Directed by Pandora Blake, 2016, United Kingdom, 17 minutes. Features Charlie J Forrest and Zak Jane Keir. US premiere.)
By The People: 25 Years Of Community Archiving at Leather Archives & Museum
Illustrates the rise of The Leather Archives & Museum (LA&M), from a co-founder's Midwestern basement to the professional institution it is today…all thanks to the ongoing efforts of those within the communities that LA&M represents. Demonstrates how professional archiving and public display of alternative sex and culture materials are acts of activism, and a path toward ending the stigma and shame that many in mainstream society often seek to place on those with kinky inclinations. (Directed by Christina Court, 2016, USA, 39 minutes. World premiere.)
More info:
** And coming out to chat about their works are Christina Court and G Sharp ('By The People: 25 Years Of Community Archiving at Leather Archives & Museum'), Jessie Sparkles ('Playing Scrabble') and Thomas Florek (whose 'Spank You Very Much' was originally scheduled for our cancelled kick off gala).
** Friday, March 17 – 7:00 PM
US Premiere!
One bedroom, six decades. A fun and playful roundelay of six erotic episodes, all set in one bedroom over six decades, traces the changes not just in dress and decor, but in sexuality and sexual mores over the years. From the invention of the pill in the 1960s, through the gay revolution, through to cybersex and female-pleasing sex toys. (Directed by Anna Brownfield, 2016, Australia, 82 minutes.)
preceded by
A car traverses the night and bodies become subjects to light and dark.
(Directed by Lo Liddell & Vile Mae, 2015, Spain, 5 minutes. US premiere.)

As we ready ourselves for new political realities, these short films stake a claim for female agency and the power of speaking one’s desires.
