And the award goes to…

SECS Fest 2017 was a huge success. Thank you to all of the organizers who spent the last year planning the event, the volunteers who helped throughout the weekend, the filmmakers who submitted their work and finally, to all those who attended. I don’t think it would be possible for a very first film festival to have mostly full screenings, especially with so little time to get the word out. But you came and made it an exciting weekend.

*not a golden raincoat award.

On Sunday night, at the closing party, the winners of the SECS Fest 2017 Golden Raincoat awards were announced. There were four awards, Best Feature, Best Short Film, Best Sex-Positive Film, and Best Humor.

 

And the first ever Golden Raincoat winners are…

Best Feature: Exotic, the very smart documentary on sex-work in Guam from director Amy Oden.

Best Short Film: Sonata by David Bloom.

Our selection for a film that communicates progressive sex-positive values goes to See Me by Ms. Naughty.

And finally Best Humor goes to the film that kept the SECS Fest jury rolling is the aisles with laughter,  House of Air from filmmaking duo Brian and Karl.

Congratulations to our winners. Our Jury deliberated long and hard trying to choose favorites as there were so many favorites. So I’m going to list some of the honorable mentions that really could be right there with the winners.

Feminist and Submissive from Erika Lust, Cake by Anne Hu, The Training of Poe, the French dramatic short, Jules and finally the experimental short Cellular Activity: Bedtime Story.

So again, thank you to all that made the weekend momentous. The organizers are in need of a few days of rest and then, we will be putting out the call for submissions for 2018 and sending out physical awards to the 2017 winners.

Tomorrow is our monthly erotic cinema event at the Grand Illusion Cinema. This is a rarely seen example of French erotic horror.

And remember, the Grand Illusion is a cash only venue.

Seattle Erotic Cinema Society volunteers will have a card reader on hand, so we will be able to sell SECS Memberships. And if you would like to buy a pass for SECS Fest 2017, you need to be a SECS member.

In preparation for the festival, SECS Volunteers hit the streets and postered numerous Seattle neighborhoods. So hopefully, you will see our poster at some of your favorite locations around the city.
