PORTLAND, Oregon—The HUMP! film festival steams into Portland, Oregon this weekend for a three day program at Cinema 21. Started in 2005, Hump! showcases "home-movie erotica, amateur sex cinema and locally produced porn, and bills itself as "The Pacific Northwest's biggest and best amateur-produced porn festival!"
The peripatetic festival, which takes place annually in Portland and Seattle, Washington, has already completed this year's five-night run at On the Boards in Seattle, which took place between November 1 and 9.
At Cinema 21, the HUMP! program begins tomorrow, November 14 and ends on Sunday. An additional screening will take place in Olympia, Washington on Friday, November 15 at the Capitol Theater. Many of this weekend's screenings, which are either 18+ or 21+ for admittance, are already sold out.
According to the HUMP! Wikipedia page, "Films are rated by the audience, and awards are given. The films are then destroyed before the live audience at the final showing of the festival, by the master of ceremonies, Dan Savage."
This Saturday, November 15, the 12:45 p.m. screening will also include Savage performing Savage Love Live.
Cinema 21 is located at 616 NW 21st Ave, Portland, OR 97209. Visit the theater's site for more information, or call is at (503) 223-4515.
