About the Festival
The Black, Indigenous, and People of Color Adult Industry Collective (BIPOC-AIC) are accepting submissions for its inaugural film festival, “Black, Brown, and Blue,” celebrating diverse representations on the blue screen. The deadline for submissions is February 10, 2021, at midnight EST.
The 2-day, virtual film festival aims to center and elevate the artistic vision, experiences, and voices of people of color and their relationships with eroticism and sexuality. BIPOC-AIC encourages all self-identifying people of color around the world to submit content, regardless of the filmmaker’s geographic location, native language, culture, gender identity, sexuality, age, body type, ability, or neurodiversity. The festival seeks creators in North America as well as those in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, South America, the Caribbean, Central America, and Europe. The goal is to create the most diverse and inclusive amount of erotic storytelling possible in a safe, secure, and welcoming independent digital space.
“Black, Brown, & Blue” promises the diaspora a safe, inclusive space to showcase representations of sex, love, relationships, and play among BIPOC & QTPOC without limiting creators to harmful, racial, sexual stereotypes.

“Black, Brown, and Blue” concludes on Monday night with a special feature presentation and live Q & A with Adult Industry Icon Jeannie Pepper.
Immediately after the screening, we will announce the festival winners.
First & second place in each category will receive a cash prize.
All submissions should center BIPOC individuals, including those involved in pre- and post-production.
