NACHTSCHATTEN is a film festival that showcases international short and feature films that are specifically related to BDSM and fetish topics. Artful, experimental and documentary films, including many award winning independent films from all over the world.
Showing films far beyond the stereotypical and distorted view on BDSM of the media and press, this festival wants to contribute to sexual education, variety, tolerance and acceptance of the BDSM lifestyle.

Each year, we are happy to give away the following awards (including honorable mentions):
- Audience Choice Award (chosen by the audience)
- Best Feature Film Award
- Best Documentary Film Award
- Best Short Film Award

There are no cash awards (yet), but besides an official award ceremony, there will also be small handcrafted physical awards which will be sent out to the filmmakers.

Your film entry MUST have a relation to the fetish and/or BDSM world, or at least be sexy/erotic in some way. We are looking for interesting entries from all over the world, seeking work that confronts stereotypes, pushes boundaries, arouses and tantalizes, and above all, highlights the tremendous diversity of the fetish/BDSM subculture. We will accept short, medium and feature-length films in all kind of genres (narrative, experimental, documentary, animated films, etc.)
