HUMP! Film Festival returns to Merrill's Roxy on Friday, September 21st and Saturday, September 22nd! The film festival will screen twice each day - 7:00 & 9:15pm. Tickets are $20 each and currently available to purchase through HUMP! Click here to reserve your tickets now.

What is HUMP? The HUMP! Film Festival 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. The 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 that will shock you, make you laugh, turn you on, and 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.

Last year was the first year Roxy participated in screening HUMP, making this our second annual screening of the film festival! This year is HUMP's 14th annual film festival, originating in Washington. To read more about HUMP, visit their website by clicking here!
