Overall Rating
  • Desiree Faust

    Bump’n’grind fest is an original art house film platform that addresses performance art, dance, specific genres of pinup girls and burlesque, (the body as icon and artist’s tool). I was delighted too to discover an activist edge to this film platform and a serious programming suit behind the scenes. Q&A’s with film makers addressed themes of liberation in art and film with a great talk back host. Participating in Bump’n’grind offers a rich and varied meaningful experience. Thanks for a great Inaugural festival still dining out on you weeks later!

    ...These were well what is art, film, race, gender, creed and unexpectedly holds a space for an activist Filmaker who uses the body to express

    We ARE serious about our Programming Erica. Thank you for that great compliment. We believe in full Freedom of Artistic Expression. We're so glad your film found its way to us in our first year. You shared SO much of your private world. We're glad we could be part of that shared experience. Hugs!
