9th edition of Porn Film Festival Berlin have been another great meeting for lovers, friends, filmmakers, sex workers, performers, curators, producers and, of course, the lovely audience every year goes to Kino Moviemento to support their local and foreing pornographers.
Program was huge and very interesting as every year and I regret not having seen things like The Foxy Merkins, Love Hotel or Jan Soldat Filmmaker in Focus. But I’ve seen other wonders and that’s what I’m going to share with you, dear follower. Reviews are going to be pretty short, I don’t want you to get bored but interested in each beautiful film.
(Different cathegories, let’s make some noise)
Bearmania by Aron Kantor
Ok, this is personal. Glitter and beards are really my thing. Men wrestling like fucking, yes, I definetly love that. Music is perfect, it takes you to outterspace, rythm plays with your anxiety.
Here you got it COMPLETE!:
Put the needle on the record by Shine Louise Houston
I like it very much when music is integrated in any kind of scene. I mean, when it comes from the scene and is not an external effect to make you feel something. This make you listen to the same music as the people on screen and as a viewer is instant magic. Sure it has a technical name, whatever. Thanks to that the story is narrated is more deep in your mind and makes the scene works perfectly well.
Watch the trailer here and then watch it complete
Music box by Morgana
A story that starts in a very naive way and end in full perversion. Give it a look:
Once upon a time there was an unfaithful mummy by Joanna Rytel
Winner of the Shortfilm Competition. This is one of my favorites of the whole program. It’s so natural and so sweet. And it’s not porn but it’s the kind of things that makes Porn Film Festival Berlin a meeting about sexuality, any kind, any vision. To know what I’m talking about, watch the trailer here:
Ladybeard by Marit Östberg
I can be wrong but I see this shortfilm as a self-portrait playing with gender-roles symbols. And I like it. Here is a link to know a little bit more.
Fuck Art School – Untitled III by Abigail Gnash and Eric Pussyboy
Well, this is my very favorite shortfilm of all PFFBerlin. Edited like a video clip, I don’t remember very well if it has only music or music and sound and I can’t find more information but this website about them LOGOTORIUM. And I don’t even know if it’s the real project. I remember it turned me on with this banana strip-tease and I found it fresh and hot at the same time. If someone knows this people, please, be so kind to tell them I really want to see this shortfilm again and give them our contact. Or something. Toytool has a facebook now, did you know it?
Neurosex Pornoia by Abigail Gnash and Eric Pussyboy.
As a Sci-Fi lover, this shorfilm satisfies me completely. I like the idea of this kind of cyborg experiments and honestly I think Mad Kate and Ganymede performance is perfect.
Space Labia by LO-FI Cherry
As a Sci-Fi lover, this shorfilm not only satisfies me completely, it also amuse me and it gave me a very nice feeling after watching it. It’s funny, witty and resourceful and I hope the girls had a lot of fun making this incredible adventure from outterspace.
Here you can find some pics
And please, don’t forget a single post of the very interesting Lo-Fi Cherry´s blog
Concha by Lo Pecado y Judy Miel
Two ideas and one personal thought:
1. Concha means cunt in Argentina
2. Authors work in this piece with Foucault’s concept of the degenitalization of sex and pleasure. A little theory behind scenes is very welcome sometimes.
3. I find people eating jelly or sweets very very sexy and now I don’t know what to do with this new fetich.
Biodildo 2.0 by Christian Slaughter
Another succesful scene by Mr. Slaughter. I must say I like this 2.0 more than the 1.0. To watch this 4 incredible pornstars together is like to open a jewler and stare at the sparkling of every precious stone. But the action is not the only thing I like, I love the rythm and the locations and, most important: the sound. To hear breath and moans of this four people is the better soundtrack.
The Shadow of your Smile by alexei Dmitriev
A simple video with pictures of old VHS. Yes, same as Super8 format 2-4 years ago, VHS is on fashion now but not every body knows how to work properly with it.

In Trouble with Cathy by Amaury Grisel
After watching this short documentary I really wanted to meet this incredible woman and her dogs, including human dogs. Visit her dungeon, have a look, touch some things and then, sit down in a corner, became invisible and just watch her and other lifes there.
Sorry but I fund no further info in the internet. No links for this awesome work.
El sexorcismo de Aily Habibi by Aily Habibi
Some things you have to shout them out loud to be free at least from the conditioning every of us have been suffering in our lifes. If you are sensitive about religion issues, don’t watch it.
Regla de 3 by Eva Pez and Nelo Vilar
Regla in spanish means Period. Just to talk about it is a political statement. Sorry, no further info.
Pepper by Katrin Memmer and Cecilia Molano
Very short therefore very precise. I really like the delicate way she shows in her movements, being very gentle touching the pepper with knife and fork to give it the perfect shape to eat a pepper.
Ideología by Felipe Rivas
Sex and politics. Always together. This shortfilm is on the same line as El sexorcismo de Aily Habibi but it is aimed at the communist regime of Allende en Chile.
If you have reach the bottom of this post, congrats! Stay tuned for more.
