After fifteen years of bringing HUMP! to movie theaters—after fifteen years of making it possible for people to be porn stars for a weekend in a movie theater without becoming porn stars on the Internet for life, after fifteen years of getting people together in theaters to watch porn the way their grandparents did—we faced a tough choice after the pandemic hit early last year. We obviously couldn't pack people into theaters. That meant we could either cancel HUMP! 2020 or make HUMP! 2020 available—for the first time—on the dreaded Internet. Last year's HUMP! Film Festival started before the pandemic hit so we reached out to the filmmakers and performers and asked them what they wanted to do. They'd made their films to be shown in theaters, not streamed on the Internet, and we were willing to cancel the festival. But the filmmakers wanted their films to be seen! So thanks to them—thanks to HUMP! filmmakers and performers—the show went on and HUMP! fans were able to enjoy HUMP! 2020 in the comfort and safety of their own homes!
And that's how HUMP! fans will enjoy HUMP! 2021: in the comfort and safety of their own homes! And we've got a great new lineup of fun and hot and sexy and crazy and interesting and moving HUMP! films, all made during the quarantine, all streaming online starting January 30th. More than 120 films were submitted for HUMP! 2021 and being locked up for the last ten months really inspired people to make some amazing dirty movies for this year's festival. This is not only going to be one of the best HUMP!s ever, it's also the most diverse HUMP!s ever and one of the most visually interesting and entertaining HUMP!s ever! Check out the trailer below! (Trailer by Shane Wahlund, music by Erik Blood.)
We've added a number of special viewing parties to the lineup—I'm hosting the opening night viewing party on January 30th—and tickets are on sale now!
The 2021 HUMP! Film Festival is happening as a livestream event with screenings/streamings between January 30th and March 6th. Order tickets here!
There are a handful of events where you can watch live with other HUMP! fans! If you want to watch other HUMP! fans laugh, scream, cry, and squirm in their seats just like you did in the theater, grab a ticket to one of our viewing parties!

All ticket holders get to vote for their favorite films in the categories of Best Sex, Best Kink, Best Humor, & Best in Show! And a portion of every ticket sold goes right to the filmmakers who made it into the festival!
Every year we invite the filmmakers to include a few props in their films—little Easter eggs for HUMP! viewers to watch out for—and while the Extra Credit Props are optional, lots of this year's filmmakers included them in fun and creative ways. This year's Extra Credit Props to watch out for are: bubbles, photo booths, and Carol Channing.
