This page features erotic films that go beyond the boundaries of “porn” – these films are independently produced, or they offer an interesting perspective on sex, sexuality and erotic storytelling. Some of these films are explicit.
Note: This page is a little out of date. Will add more films soon. I recommend Pink Label as a great place to find new erotic film. And of course, Bright Desire.

9 Songs (2007)
Matt, a young glaciologist, soars across the vast, silent, icebound immensities of the South Pole as he recalls his love affair with Lisa. They meet at a mobbed rock concert in a vast music hall – London’s Brixton Academy. They are in bed at night’s end. Together, over a period of several months, they pursue a mutual sexual passion whose stages unfold in counterpoint to nine live-concert songs. Featuring nine live concert performances not available anywhere else by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Von Bondies, Elbow, Primal Scream, The Dandy Warhols, Super Furry Animals, Franz Ferdinand and Michael Nyman. Director Michael Winterbottom wondered about the double standard of why novels can have explicit sex scenes and be legit and films could not. So his short film of a relationship based solely on sex and a love for music is the result of that thought.
Starring: Kieran O’Brien, Margo Stilley, Huw Bunford, Cian Ciaran, The Dandy Warhols

From the director of ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ comes SHORTBUS, an exploration into the lives of several characters living in present-day New York as they navigate the comic and tragic intersections between love and sex. Male and female, straight and gay, the characters find one another – and eventually find themselves – when they all converge at a weekly underground salon called “Shortbus,” a mad world of art, music, politics, and polysexual carnality. One of the true sensations of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, presents sex and sexuality as never before seen in mainstream entertainment, and promises to be one of the most talked-about films for months – and years – to come.
Starring: Sook-Yin Lee, Paul Dawson, Lindsay Beamish, PJ DeBoy, Raphael Barker
The latest film from lesbian auteur Shine Louise Houston has had the critics raving. Apart from all the hot queer sex, this film has a riveting story behind it. Hotshot martial artist Jessie Easton is training for the fight of her career, yet she’s haunted by past love and current, undeniable attraction to her opponent, Violet Vahn. Throw in some conflict with corrupt nemesis Bobby Malone, and you’ve got an intensely erotic and masterful crossover film. Whether Jessie wins or loses the fight, you’ll be squirming in more ways than one.
Starring: Syd Blakovich, Madison Young, Jiz Lee, Dylan Ryan

All About Anna (2003/2008)
Anna (Gry Bay) is a young costume designer, focused on her job and wary of getting caught in romantic relationships. She has just found a new apartment, and is tempted to let her latest boyfriend, Frank (Thomas Raft), move in with her. Instead, she finds a tenant: The flamboyant, fun-loving Camilla (Eileen Daly), who shares Anna’s views on love and commitment. For both of them, it’s all about fun. Strangers without strings. No commitment, no casualties. But Anna’s resolve is challenged after an unexpected encounter with an ex-boyfriend, Johan (Mark Stevens), who once upon a time was the man in her life. Johan is ready to start over, and Anna is tempted – but also afraid of losing her newly won independency and, not least, of getting hurt. More than ever, she needs to get back on the merry-go-round and move on. In order to forget all about Johan’s existence, she stages one obstacle after another. Fortunately, she receives an offer to design costumes for a theatre in Paris. As far away from romantic temptation as possible. Or so she thinks.
