The freshly legalized Pornotopia Film Festival is gearing up for its fifth year of “celebrating the beauty and diversity of sexuality.” Organizers are looking for submissions featuring “luscious, kinky, consensual, gender-bending, sex-positive, empowering, educational and downright dirty interpretations of the erotic.” Interested filmmakers can submit their content via Pornotopia’s website through June 30. There is a $20 entry fee per filmmaker—unless you’ve been featured in Pornotopia during previous years. This year’s Pornotopia will take place Nov. 14 through 16 at Albuquerque’s Guild Cinema.
