Ever wanted to make your very own erotic/porn film? Then look no further. Come along and express your erotic imagination with Lyon Bell's From Fantasy to Film workshop.

Read the Run-Riot Interview with Lidia Ravviso, Artistic Director, UNCENSORED Festival.

Welcome to the beginners film laboratory presenting the tools to plan and create your very own erotic/porn movie — whether you later decide to pick up a camera and do it, or whether you just like knowing that you could.

In this unique DIY workshop Lyon Bell will give you exercises to tweak your erotic imagination and help you decide what you’d personally love to see on film, no matter how soft or hard. She will walk you through some porn and erotic genres and styles to help you choose how you want to express your idea. Maybe you’ll even come up with something new. You’ll make your own storyboard to take home.

There will be no nudity required or actual sexual activity involved. All genders, orientations and proclivities are welcome. This is a safe, non-judgmental place where you can explore your ideas and creativity!

Blue Artichoke Films, based in Amsterdam, creates diverse fiction films, documentaries and experimental films that all illuminate the riveting, intimate, and sometimes delightfully awkward side of sex. Founded by director/producer/writer Jennifer Lyon Bell, her handcrafted films are ‘erotic film for people who like films’.

A Harvard psychology graduate with a master’s degree in Film Studies, Lyon Bell’s award-winning films screen at international festivals, cinemas, and museums all over America, Europe, Japan, and South America.

Her body of work recently won the European Feminist Porn Award. Her trilogy Silver Shoes premiered at the London Institute of Contemporary Arts, screened by invitation at the Schwules Museum Berlin, and received the ‘Movie Of The Year’ grand prize at the Feminist Porn Awards in Toronto. Her explicitly erotic fiction film Matinée has won three Best Film awards including one from the Melbourne Underground Film Festival which it won by jury prize -even though the film was technically banned from the festival by the Australian Classification Board for its intense sexual content. Her love/porn collaboration Skin. Like. Sun. has been embraced by sexologists at home and abroad for its unusually realistic depiction of female pleasure. And her arty erotic documentary Headshot, which screened at the Cannes Short Film Corner at its launch, broadcast recently on primetime television for half a million viewers. Her virtual reality 3D 360° immersive experience film Second Date was nominated for a VR award at the Raindance Film Festival (London) at its World Premiere, and recently screened at the EYE Filmmuseum in Amsterdam. Her newest film Adorn is an experimental erotic game in reverse and is currently premiering at festivals all over the world.
