NOTE: Due to the pandemic, the 2021 event date has been moved to February 11-19 2022. Unfortunately, the FilmFreeway system wouldn't allow us to change the date to proper reflect this and this call is to seek erotic shorts to be added to those that have previously been selected for 2021.

Call for erotic art films.

From sensual to shocking, we are looking for a new generation of filmmakers to put their spin on erotica.

The Dirty Show® is an internationally renowned erotic art exhibition.
