Two Hot Nights: Adults-Only Weekend at Animest

Erotica – The Night of Erotic Animation, the special selection of titillating films for 18+ audiences, is back in a new formula at Animest 16th edition (October 8-17, Bucharest), following its resounding 2019 success. Volume 2 will be part of a new section that explores an array of perspectives on sexuality and celebrates diversity. Happening during the first weekend of the festival (October 9-10), Two Hot Nights – that the shiest ones may skip and minors have to skip – will consist of two nocturnal screenings, and a unique discussion with Cris and Maxi, the hosts of Women Watching Porn – an educational podcast about female pleasure. On top of the Animest selection of films, spectators will get to enjoy a program curated by Kaboom Animation Festival from the Netherlands, one of the most prominent cinematographic events in Europe.

Animest.16 festival passes are already available online, at

A collection of stories on sexual diversity, passion, sex, feminism, orgasm, nature and love, Erotica – The Night of Erotic Animation Vol. 2 pushes against the limits of the conventional, inviting moviegoers to step outside their comfort zone. Using diverse animation techniques to explore daring material, the short films selected by the Animest team will entice and entertain mature audiences on the first weekend of the festival. A special screening will be dedicated to the Animated Guide to Female Pleasure selection, put together by the Kaboom Animation Festival. This section will challenge the audience to discover new approaches to pleasure, unleashing their imagination in the pliable universe of erotic animation.


“Let your imagination run wild in a world of animated porn and erotica with discussions about female pleasure, masturbation and how exploring yourself can change how you explore the world,” say Cris and Maxi, who will host an intimate event, where topics such as female pleasure, ethics in pornography and erotic attraction for surreal stories in animated art will be on the table. For the first time in Romania, two of the moderators of the Women Watching Porn podcast (the series of educational chats on pleasure) will share their own experiences, inviting the audience to join the dialogue anonymously (using an app), starting from some of the erotic short films in the Kaboom selection."

To reiterate, access to the event is only permitted to adults, and the number of seats available is limited.
