Paris is excited by the Sexy International Paris Film Festival!
The 2nd edition of the Sexy International Paris Film Festival (SIPFF) will roll out the pink carpet from 24 -27 June 2010 in Paris, France showcasing an international programme of films dedicated to desire, eroticism, sexuality and sex.
Four days of cultural festivities will commence with the opening night of «Pink Eiga» erotic films, premiering in Paris for the first time on the big screen. Complimenting this is a diverse and rich four day programme of films from all over the world as well as creative performances and expositions.
«Sexy» will brighten the darkened the cinema room of one of the most dynamic, independent cinemas - the Cinéma Le Grand Action, as well as a special «Best – of» and Gay | Lesbian Panorama celebration at the Yono Bar in the Marais, in the heart of the Parisian Gay District.
Art lovers and cinephiles will meet and take advantage of the diverse programme.

Prizes include Best International Short, Best Francophone Short, Jury Prize and Audience Prize.
An international Sexy Festival, but not sexist.
The theatre will be honoured each evening with Performances by a team of wonderful actors, « Adlib444», who will transport audiences each evening with their thematic performances of Japan, Nouvelle Vague, Pyjama Party and Vintage Hollywood. The performances will accompany each nightly session, from opening night to closing night.
This year, Gay Pride and the festival will uniquely fuse at the Yono Bar for one night only in a special panorama of short films with Thalie Astrée and friends opening the screenings with her unique brand of music
Ladies night will celebrate films made by women, with our first programme «Sexu-elles» dedicated to Francophone «Femmes» filmmakers and desire. Following this will be X-Femmes, four explicitly erotic films from secondsexe (www.secondsexe.com) made for Canal Plus made by women for women. The selection includes Zoe Cassavetes «Samedi Soir» , Toni Marshall's « Le Beau Sex» and Mélanie Laurent's «A Ses Pieds»
Finally, the closing night will hightlight the image of the festival: Glamour, class, sensuality and eroticism. The best film prizes will be presented, surrounded by music and performances.
SIPFF gives back
The objective of the festival is to rise above the taboos that lie within the concept and the world of «Sexy» and replace it with the celebration of the body and the heart. The festival wishes to promote the cultural diversity of films that are 'Sexy» and value rich ideas and discoveries. SIPFF is unmissable for all who are passionate about cinema and sensuality.
