The deadline for submitting films for the 13th Annual HUMP! Film Festival—the Pacific Northwest's biggest, best, and only short porn film festival—is coming up! Here's our call for submissions...

HUMP! invites filmmakers, porn-star wannabes, hotties, kinksters, regular folks, YOU, and other creative types to make short porn films—five minutes max—for HUMP! 2017! HUMP! films can be hardcore, softcore, live action, animated, kinky, vanilla, straight, gay, lez, bi, trans, genderqueer—anything goes at HUMP! (Well, almost anything: No poop, no animals, no minors.) HUMP! films are not released online or in any other form. Filmmakers retain all rights. Appearing in a film for HUMP! means you get to be a porn star in a movie theatre for a weekend—not on the internet forever!

We got a wonderful note this week from one of the teams who made a film for last year's HUMP! Film Festival. After the festival kicks off in Seattle and Portland, HUMP! hits the road. The HUMP! 2016 Tour has visited 21 cities so far and will visit 13 more cities before the tour ends. Unlike most short film festivals, people who make films for HUMP! get a percentage of every ticket sold during the tour—and with the tour only 2/3 over, the filmmakers who wrote in this week had already made back all the money they'd spent on their film.

There's also no charge to enter HUMP! and cash prizes are awarded to filmmakers by audience ballot after the festival concludes in Seattle and Portland! There's still time to get started on your film for HUMP! 2017! Details below...

Tickets on Sale for the 13th annual HUMP! Film Festival: 9/15

In Portland: Nov. 2 - 11 at Revolution Hall
