The 2012 Award

Petra Joy

This Year's Theme

The theme of the second Petra Joy Award is "Female Fantasies". This is an erotic short film competition for aspiring female filmmakers women who are either completely new to filmmaking or amateur directors who have not been distributed yet.

Competition Format

The duration of the film can be anything between one to ten minutes. The genre is open from animation to documentary or erotic vignettes we welcome all films that feature female fantasies and in an innovative, creative and artistic way. A fresh, creative approach is much more important to us than technical perfection. Even a clip shot on your mobile phone could be the winning film, if it visualizes a female fantasy.

We appreciate all variations of female fantasies from vanilla to fetish, subtle eroticism to hard-core, straight to gay share with us your own fantasies or those of other women and make them visible to the world. We value films that promote safe sex.
