Our Backstory

In 1970, San Francisco broke ground as the first city in the United States to host a public screening of hardcore sex, with the International Erotic Film Festival at the Presidio Theatre. Sexual rights and free speech are as important now as they were half a century ago. The festival’s debut honors our city’s sexual rights movements and cinematic history.

The San Francisco PornFilmFestival seeks to showcase the creativity and craft of adult-oriented filmmaking from the San Francisco Bay Area, and beyond. Inspired by numerous adult film events, we want to specifically thank the Berlin PornFilmFestival for its namesake and guidance in forming this new American landmark festival. We embark on this journey to celebrate a vibrant legacy of sex-positive film artists.
