2:00pm: The Social Sex Revolution
MakeLoveNotPorn.tv: The Social Sex Revolution
Socializing Sex with MLNP.tv CEO, Cindy Gallop 15 mins
In a world where social media platforms accept that men have nipples but not women, won't allow visuals of breastfeeding despite the fact that we all started life doing it, and kick you off for any form of sexual self-expression, while porn dominates the internet - somebody had to take a stand. MakeLoveNotPorn is building a whole new category on the internet - social sex. Now you can celebrate your relationship on Facebook and share the great #realworldsex you're having on MLNP. You can post great selfies on Instagram and share yourself masturbating on MLNP. Cindy Gallop talks about how the MLNP team is breaking down the final social frontier to be as transformative for our #realworldsex lives as sharing everything else socially has been, to help make it easier for all of us to talk more openly and honestly about sex, and to ensure that everyone can be 'Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference.'
What does it mean to ‘curate’ #realworldsex? 15 mins
Madam Curator, Sarah Beall, and Assistant Curator, Ariel Martinez, have access to what most couples and sex therapists never get to see. We see real human connection occur through #realworldsex multiple times throughout the course of the day. We hear the pillow talk. We see people grow. We watch couples try new things and we see our MLNPstars integrate filming into their day-to-day sex lives. Allow us to walk you through the MLNP.tv curation process and introduce our amazing MLNPstars and their videos!
#realworldsex screening 40 mins
Selected with care and shown with permission from our MLNPstars, this 40 min program showcases everyday people having sex the way they like to have it in their everyday lives. From #cinematic to #contextualized to #comical to #carnal, these videos highlight both MLNP.tv's diversity and its commitment to celebrating the #messyawesomehumanness of #realworldsex!
Special thanks to Jessica Nelson for her editing skills and to our MLNPstars for allowing us to screen their videos.
makelovenotporn.tv is of the people, by the people, and for the people who believe that the sex we have in our everyday life is the hottest sex there is. We are not porn - porn is performance (often an exceedingly delicious performance, but a performance nonetheless). We are not 'amateur' - a label that implies that the only people doing it right are the professionals and the rest of us are bumbling idiots. (Honey, please.)
We are pro-sex. pro-porn. pro-knowing the difference.
We are #realworldpeople, #realworldsex, #realworldfeelings, #realworldrelationships, #realworldbodies, #realworldhotness, #realworldeverything.

6pm: AK Burns & A.L. Steiner's Community Action Center
Is a 69-minute sociosexual film, which incorporates the erotics of a community where the personal is not only political, but sexual. This project was heavily inspired by porn-romance-liberation films, such as works by Fred Halsted, Jack Smith, James Bidgood, Joe Gage and Wakefield Poole, which served as distinct portraits of the urban inhabitants, landscapes and the body politic of a particular time and place. Community Action Center is a unique contemporary womyn-centric composition that serves as both an ode and a hole-filler.
Because the video contains sexually explicit content, the term ‘porn’ is relevant and the artists have an interest in exploring the trappings of the term itself.

(North American premier: Amalia Ulman ‘International House of Cosy’
World premier: DADDY music video (Tim O’Keef & James Franco)
w/ Kristin Smallwood, Grottie Lockett & Bonnie Lane
‘International House of Cozy’ is a film by Amalia Ullman in which she takes her research into the boundaries of authenticity and consumerism to the extreme. The title also refers to a feeling of coziness and ‘home’ as marketed through lifestyle blogs and websites such as Airbnb. The film uses porn as a tool to legitimize a visual aesthetic while transforming it into a categorized fetish. In this case it'd be hipster culture as image void of meaning: as the commercial corporate beast it has become.
Grottie Lockett is a sudo-name the artist(s) have created a fictional character inspired by the 'reality tv' blueprint careers of celebrities such as Paris Hinton and the Kardashians, via. working class London. There is no aspect of Grottie's existence she isn't willing to commodify.

1:30pm: Antonio Onio's Loose Holes
From the artist:
“As an artist, I am interested first and foremost on evoking sensation.
Through pornography, which is in itself an art form so many times underused in its potential, sensation is suggested through stimulation of our most repressed human instinct : sexuality. The perverted game between both of them is the fact that new technologies and digital information are used to stimulate something that is inherent to our nature.
Thus, it is my opinion that pornography should aim at awakenings of sensation and thought process, and not only be an instrument for us to get off. It is politically and socially charged with all the choices of the pornography maker, and it plays (aware or unawaringly) a major force in the struggle against the patriarchal culture.
I have made a selection of works from artists that I believe push through the boundaries of pornography and actually end up exponentiating the potential of itself.
In the presentation Antonio Onio will present the movies in the form of a salon, embodying his Facebook online Goddess, BabyHay.”

Antonio MV ELAGABAL PORNUTOPIA
Viewers watching may wonder what all the fuss is about, but will quickly realize that it leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination. There is a tremendous amount of nudity: there is very explicit gay, lesbian, and straight sex, kinky sex, and a grand orgy complete with dancing Roman guards thrown in for good measure. The film is also incredibly violent and bloody, with rape, torture, and mutilation the order of the day. In one particularly disturbing scene, a man is slowly stabbed to death, a woman urinates on his corpse, and his genitals are cut off and thrown to the dogs.
Running times: 2:42 / 4:36 / 2:53
Antonio Da Silva / BEACH 19

Mikka Gro Nielssen SKETCH
I recently read an article about Gary Hills piece “Tall Ship” from 1992 and was inspired by his way of using the moving image in a real-life action. I would like to make a piece of work with this parallel reality that arise. The media makes it possible to distort reality in editing. It is very few tolls that have to be used to make a recording of something real unreal, but then when you at the same time puts it in a context of something happening right now, you experience a kind of gap in experience between the video and act - as the video subsequently become part of. However, it is reality in the most literal sense. A kind of impression of reality. Two or more layers wherein one or more of them are a kind of "virtual reality". As in Gary Hills works, I am attracted by the emphasis it puts on human relations and whoever is in the middle. The space linking all these things together in a relationship.
My contribution to the porn-film-festival 2016 will be a mix of performative elements and moving images (final work will be one or two videos). Based on my own physical limits to explore boundaries and fantasies of the viewer.
Oskur Garzia BERLIN- RAW TO THE BONE (THE SEXLESS EDIT)
Queer , sexy, self destructive, apocalyptical – welcome to Berlin's underground gay world. In this movie, Oskur Garzia adapts his porn movie and cuts all sex scenes, giving us what's left- a place of nothingness where apocalypse lurks but it is not the end...it is just the beginning.
In Collaboration with Antonio Onio, Oskur has removed all the sex scenes from this edit and the question lingers: what is more enticing about the scene? The guys having sex or just the arousal of senses through the suggestion of sexual encounters?
Sunday 5th June

5pm: The Golden Age of Porn
with Ron Jeremy & Gerry Visco
Gerry Visco performer, writer, photographer, nightlife host and club kid, will be curating and hosting a segment for the NYC Porn Festival dedicated to the golden age of porn during the 1970s and 1980s by showing a film she was cast in called “Joy.” It’s hilarious, sexy, a bit politically incorrect, and a full-length excellent porn flick starring the phenomenal porn star Sharon Mitchell and directed by Harley Mansfield in 1977.) Starring a young Sharon Mitchell as the titular character who is sexually assaulted, then Joy gets inspired and goes on a man-raping spree, although can’t rape the willing and these men are ultimately very willing. Many other women in NYC are inspired by Joy and go around “raping” men who enjoy every moment as well. “Joy” was named the top porn flick of the year by the late Al Goldstein, publisher of Screw Magazine. She will talk about the film and what it was like to act in porn during those days.
She was also Al Goldstein’s personal assistant in 1980 and met the pornography icons that Goldstein worked with including Ron Jeremy, Robin Byrd, etc. and took frequent phone calls from Hugh Hefner from Playboy Magazine and Larry Flynt from Hustler Magazine.
The crew and hosts from the late night TV cable porn talk show Midnight Blue were also housed in the office with Screw Magazine. Midnight Blue ran from 1974-2003 and was described as “late-night cable's most depraved cavalcade of politics, pornography and perversion hosted by controversial Screw Magazine publisher Al Goldstein.”
Sunday 5th June
7pm: Daliah Saper (Entertainment and First Amendment Attorney) presents Revenge Porn
The term “Revenge Porn” made headlines recently when hacked, nude photos of celebrities like Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence and supermodel Kate Upton were widely disseminated online. The vast majority of revenge porn cases, however, involve victims of a jealous or vengeful ex -the once-married individual, the college coed, or the high school teen.
Saper Law will join the NYCPFF to discuss some of the technical and legal hurdles that victims of revenge porn victims face in prosecuting defendants. For example, many offenders upload these images and videos anonymously, using proxy servers to mask their identities and IP addresses. Once online, such content can go viral, circulating in and out of subreddit chains, BitTorent files, and other impossible-to-control downstream distribution networks.
Even when the individual offenders’ identities can be discovered, moreover, federal and state law often falls short of offering meaningful relief. This has led victims to take matters into their own hands, for example in Brooklyn last year girls made posters of there exes & post them on lamp-posts warning other girls of them, which was amazing and scandalous.
Sunday 5th June
8:30pm: Furrie culture & sexuality
The subculture of Furry involves anthropomorphic animal characters with human personalities and characteristics. There is a huge community of people (mostly male) who gather on the internet and at furry conventions where they dress in full furry costumes most often resembling wolves and bears.
The concept of Furry was officially created in 1980 when a character drawing from Steve Gallacci’s Albedo Anthropomorphics started a discussion at a science fiction convention. Fans consider the origins to be as early as 1965 with Richard Adam’s novel Watership Down and Disney’s Robin Hood being important examples.
Sexuality within the Furry community is a polarizing issue with less than half of the fans reporting sexual attraction as important in their Furry activities and a majority taking a negative stance towards zoophilia. However Furry is generally viewed as having a quality of sexual perversion, with Furry porn and cyber sex being a huge part of the culture.
Sunday 5th June

Vamping: Part Three - The Provisional Adoration Zefrey Throwell 2016 (6:00)
The Provisional Adoration is Throwell's third piece in a series of reinterpretations of classic works by masters. Stolen by the Sicilian mafia in 1969 from the Oratory of San Lorenzo in Palermo, Italy - this piece is still missing. Considered one of Caravaggio's best works, it is the most expensive painting in history. In this video, Throwell extrapolates the subtext of the painting and gives voice to the sensual suggestions underlying the work. Half fetish film, half high art. Half fun and half love letter to the master.

Business Crush Isabel Frances McGuire 2016 (4:14)
"You step into the theater. You are at an artist's talk at some institution for some big name art bro and it's time for the Q&A. Fed up with the undertones of misogyny and unbecoming lack of awareness on behalf of the artist, you raise your hand. Someone gives you a microphone and you ask him some HARD PRESSING questions. The two of you argue while the audience of bored students goes on Instagram. You finall say over the mic, "The power dynamic of a Q&A isn't really my cup of tea... Let's talk after." He says, "Fine." You meet up at a coffee shop and fight HARD. He never falters or gives up. He always thinks he's right. He says things along the lines of "I understand what you mean, but you're really not getting the point." And "Okay, but i can use anyone's image if they put it on the internet." You're so stressed, but you invite him to your house anyway. He enters and see that you have a dog kennel, but no dog. He says, "Is that for you, you fucking bitch?" You nod and say, "Yes, sir." - Isabel Frances McGuire

Self Love Ritual Lena Marquise 2016 (5:43)
Self Love Ritual is a film directed and edited by Lena Marquise that depicts a woman (Seraph the muse) in varying stages of ritualistic preparation for self love and a fantastical male presence (Rhetor the narrator) that seemingly governs her actions. It is intentionally difficult to distinguish who is fantasizing about whom; the fantasy and reality interchangeable depending on the viewer's perspective.
