Hump! Film Festival Comes to Ann Arbor

hump-feature

The Hump! Film Festival describes itself as a film festival featuring short dirty movies made by people who aren’t porn stars, but want to be one for a weekend. Since 2005, audiences have made five-minute-or-less films that divulge into what the filmmaker finds sexy while exploring their fantasies. The films included will make audiences laugh, turn them on, and make them blush. The festival does not shy away from its goal in changing the stigma and connotations that surround porn in the United States.

Hump! is spearheaded by Dan Savage, an author, columnist, and activist for the LGBT community. His nationally syndicated column, Savage Love, gives readers relationship and sex advice. In regard to the festival, he has said that the internet was invented for pornography. He and a panel of 12 judges decide on which films should be shown in the festival. Names are kept anonymous and the films are publicly destroyed after they are seen. It’s an opportunity for filmmakers to show a small audience what they find erotic and interesting for one night — no matter how crazy it may be.
