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.

Hacker Porn brings to Rome the best selection of kinky, weird, post-porn and queer cinema. We hack and destabilize expectations about what is considered exciting, obscene, inconvenient, secret. HPFF is a completely independent and self-funded event, created to give value and visibility to independent and DIY productions, making bodies, sexuality and subversion of the norm new subjects of investigation. The first edition of the Festival took place from April 26th to April 30th, 2017 at Il Kino film club. After that, Trenta Formiche started collaborating with us and have been hosting the festival every year since then.

HPFF23 returns from 26th to 30th April, 2023 with its seventh edition always hosted in the Trenta Formiche bunker. The main event will be preceded by three Wednesdays (April 5, 12, 19) in which we will present some works from the new edition of the festival.
