Pornfilmfestival Berlin 2017 Awards

Best feature film

by Edgardo Castro

This film is a trip on its own, it follows the protagonists from up close and with a lot of empathy for the small moments of many sex and drug induced nights. The director stages himself, completely free of shame, in scenes turning the inside out with such intensity, that it is a bliss to see it done with so much sober clarity. Many things come together: a discrete camera, gently pulling us in, the outstanding editing, throwing us from one situation into the next, and the casual tension of the amateur actors, letting us feel the story in present tense. A film that will stick with us.

Best short film

by Matt Lambert

Best documentary feature film

by Nicoletta Nesler & Marilisa Piga

The programmers of the Pornfilmfestival Berlin decided to give the documentary film award 2017 to a film about strong and independent women resisting a society that tries to force them into the traditional idea that every woman’s purpose in life is to be a mother. It is a film that is also made by two strong and independent women who share their thoughts and experiences as childless women with us and who won the hearts of the festival team as well as those of the audience.

Honorable mentions feature film

by Oompon Kitikamara

A special mention goes to the film “PlayBoy and the Gang of Cherry” by Oompon Kitikamara, because it shakes our viewing pattern with its particular, lyrical and cunning imagery, and leaves us both – curious and perplex.

by Émilie Jouvet

A special mention goes to the film “My body my rules” by Èmilie Jouvet, because it celebrates the female body in all its facets, and opens a loving and self defined space for them, in which they can live it up to the maximum.
