Merrill's Roxy welcomes HUMP! Film Festival to it's Burlington premiere this October for TWO NIGHTS ONLY!

What is HUMP! Film Festival? HUMP! has been bringing audiences a new kind of porn since 2005. The festival features short dirty movies - each less than five minutes - all created by people who aren't porn stars but want to be one for a weekend. The filmmakers and stars show us what they think is hot and sexy, creative and kinky, their ultimate turn-ons and their craziest fantasies. Their carefully curated program is a cornucopia of body types, shapes, ages, colors, sexualities, genders, kinks, and fetishes - all united by a shared spirit of sex-positivity. HUMP! is a celebration of creative sexual expression. You will see films at HUMP! that shock you, make you laugh, and turn you on. You will also be touched by the sincerity and vulnerability with which these films are lovingly made. HUMP!'s main mission is to change the way America sees - and makes and shares - porn.
