DIY 4EVER / Queer shorts
floZif proposes a program of queer, BDSM, trans* short films offering an experimental vision exploring the diversity of sexual identities and bodies. With an original touch and free of restrictions, sexualities are questioned, they shift, they are recreated and they are examined. The rich imagery of the films takes the audience on a voyage towards differences, otherness and various genres, following the radical and alternative thoughts of the creatives behind these films. The evening is a peek inside different worlds of possibilities.
floZif appears in three of the selected films: Much More Pussy –GangBang (Emilie Jouvet) – / A Good F* (floZif) / This is the Girl (Catherine Corringer)

Porn talk by Susanna Paasonen
The history of Finnish porn is largely that of print. This talk explores two particular moments in this history: the increased presence of hardcore, as facilitated by transformations in the interpretation of the obscenity law in 1973, and the attempts to launch gay porn magazines in 1983/1984. Rich in examples, the talk outlines the business of Finnish print porn and addresses its attempts to balance the international with the markedly home-grown.
Bio: Susanna Paasonen is professor of media studies at University of Turku, with a long interest in pornography. Her books include Carnal Resonance: Affect and Online Pornography (2011), Pornosta (2015) and Many Splendored Things: Thinking Sex and Play (forthcoming).
