ATTENTION: New dates: November 16-18 2020
NACHTSCHATTEN is a film festival that showcases international short and feature films that are specifically related to BDSM and fetish topics. Artful, experimental and documentary films from and for the BDSM scene and everyone interested in it. Films far beyond the stereotypical and distorted view on BDSM of the media and press, this festival wants to contribute to sexual education, variety, tolerance and acceptance of the BDSM lifestyle.
Many award winning independent films from all over the world have been screened there, as you can see in our archive: http://www.nachtschatten-filmfest.com/archive/
We are looking for interesting entries from all over the world. We seek work that confronts stereotypes, pushes boundaries, arouses and tantalizes, and above all, highlights the tremendous diversity of the fetish/BDSM subculture.
