About us

Hacker Porn Film Festival was born in Rome from the idea of Fran Stable (producer of Porn to be Free, documentary by Carmine Amoroso) and Lucio Massa (producer of indie porn movies like Beyond Madness and Undercover Mistress), as independent and self-produced project, with the collaboration and participation of various artists, performers and activists who work together to give life to the event.

HPFF brings to Rome the best selection of queer, post-porn, kinky and weird cinema! We hack and destabilize the expectations of what we consider exciting, obscene, inconvenient, secret. HPFF is an independent and self-financed event that prioritizes the visibility of independent and diy productions, while focusing on bodies, sexuality and subverting norms. The first edition of HPFF took place from 26 to 30 April 2017 at Il Kino film club. Afterwards Trenta Formiche started the collaboration with us, still hosting the new editions of the festival nowadays.

After a massive double edition that accompanied us in the last three months of 2021, we return to our spring abnormality with a new edition. HPFF22 offers a new and rich programme, while keeping alive our idea of a festival built around people, lived experiences, socializing and the alliances that come to life through the movies and art that we show, beyond genre and gender.
