The Stranger and the Portland Mercury once again invite amateur filmmakers, porn stars, porn-star wannabes, hotties, kinksters, regular folks, and all other creative types to make short porn films—five minutes max—for HUMP! 2015. HUMP! 2015 films can be hardcore, softcore, live action, animated, kinky, vanilla, straight, gay, lez, bi, trans, genderqueer—anything goes at HUMP! (Well, almost anything: No poop, no animals, no minors.)
HUMP! films are not released online or in any other form. Filmmakers retain all rights. Appearing in a film for HUMP! means getting to be a porn star exclusively in our festival—no where else. This year, all of the accepted films will travel on an national tour with the 2016 festival. That means that ALL FILMMAKERS WILL RECIEVE A PORTION OF OUR TOUR’S TICKET SALES! If your film makes the cut and gets into the Festival, you will earn $$!
Three first place prizes and one grand prize are awarded at HUMP
! — all decided by secret audience ballot. Films may qualify in more than one prize category.
- Best Humor: $1,000 First Prize, $250 First Runner-Up
- Best Sex: $1,000 First Prize, $250 First Runner-Up
