  • à propos

    FdS is a multidisciplinary festival that presents artistic projects around affects, sexualities and genders that disobey norms.
    The festival values the cultural field of feminist, sex-workers, LGBTQIA+ and sex-positive productions through a dazzling, raw and soft programming of cinema, mediation, performance, visual arts and music. Sometimes explicit, sometimes pudic, sexuality is presented for what it has of emancipating, revolutionary and beneficial for society.
    FdS festival is a non-profit organization, which operates with a lot of passion and volunteerism and is aware of the political issues it represents.
    The FdS is for everyone! Thus, you are welcome regardless of your age, your social class or your sensitivity because sexuality concerns any of us <3

    11th edition from 18 to 21 May 2023 at arsenic in Lausanne, as well as Théâtre Sévelin 36, HumuS bookstore, sociocultural center Pôle Sud, Maison de quartier sous-gare and DOCKS.



    The FdS considers a positive and festive approach to sexualities. Sex is for pleasure, let's make it fun ! There are three elements to be taken seriously in sexualities: consent, health and the possible procreation resulting from certain genital combinations. All of the following statements are based on these three foundations. 


    There is no more or less right or valid way to practice sex. Everyone chooses the one that suits them. You can't have too much sex, or not enough. You can't have too many partners, or not enough. There is no type of partner more valuable than another. The possibility or not of procreation is not a criterion of validity or morality of a sexual interaction.


    There are no limits to human creativity nor to the possibilities of different identities and sexualities.


    Gender depends on you. Gender is what everyone wants it to be. Human biology presents such diversity that a simple male-female binary concept can only be reductive and inadequate. Gender is a sex toy.


    All bodies are valid, whether they are beautiful or ugly. Health is not a criterion of a right or wrong body. Nor is bodily modification a criterion for the validity or morality of bodies, no matter how important the transformation is.


    All clothing choices are valid, the rest is a matter of taste and aesthetics. There is no right way to dress, and few clothes or short clothes do not induce any implicit consent.


    The biggest obstacle to a healthy approach to sexualities is taboo, censorship and prudishness. We cannot talk too much about sex, or in too much detail. Sex is for everyone. The cultural expression of sexualities is essential and important. The FdS wants it to be participatory, free and collective rather than exploitative, normative and elitist.


    The look offered by the staging of bodies and sexualities is an essential issue to take into account. The FdS seeks to highlight a plurality of cultural expressions of sexuality, beyond the overrepresentation of the audio-visual and the male gaze.


    Sex is never obscene in itself. It is violence, hatred, abuse, dehumanization and exploitation that is obscene. Creating an alternative to the destructive porn industry is essential.


    Sex work is work.


    Each person fundamentally has the inalienable right to bodily autonomy.


    None of the statements above describes the reality of the majority of humans in terms of their practical experience of sexualities and gender relations. Social reality implies a resistance that is both necessary and inescapable. Respect, awareness and humility are needed when dealing with people who do not have the luxury or envy to access all facets of sex positivity.


    The creation of the alternative is the positive foundation of resistance. The celebration of the alternative is its updated reproduction.


    It is not a question of setting up a new morality. This manifesto expresses the foundation of a minimal practical ethics that is ours today and is only valid for us here and now. All those who appropriate it are only accountable to themselves.

    Call for entries

    Every year since 2012, Sexuality & Gender Art Festival creates a radical space of expression for non-normative, creative, sex-positive sexualities and disobedient genders identities in Lausanne, Switzerland.

    La FdS has a multidisciplinary program of around 30 projects focused on genders, sexualities and affects. During 4 days, concerts, DJ sets, performances, talks, workshops, radio, exhibitions, online programs, and film competitions take place in a festive and kind atmosphere.

    The film selection seeks to highlight works that present high artistic quality, explore singular erotic narrative approaches, and renew hegemonic representations of bodies, genders, sexualities, erotic and love relations, affects and feelings.

    All formats are welcome ! Long, medium and short films, fiction, documentary and experimental, Among the many kind of films represented, we value (post-)pornography as we believe it is a powerful tool to unlearn all that is not useful to us and to create new delicious experiences and references.

    La FdS is a vibrant meeting place for artists, musicians, thinkers, activists, filmmakers, curious, queer, old and young audiences interested in sharing on genders and sexualities, where a lot of love, tears and debates are shared <3


    Only films from 2020 to 2023 are admitted.
    We encourage (teams of) filmmakers that have a political and ethical policy based on safety rules and active anti-racist, anti-transfobic, anti-validist attitude to the people they collaborate with. The film director should have a personal implication with the subject of the film and/or the aesthetic identity. If we get to know the film has any accusation of harassment or abusive treatments, if will be automatically dismissed.

    archive of award-winning films

    Since 2015, La Fête du Slip presents a international film competition each year. In the first four years, the competition was solely focused on porn shortfilms. In 2019, the festival team took the time to rethink the entire concept and terms of the competition. Since 2019 then, the competition is open to films of all genres, but also to feature films. In addition, a new Swiss short film competition was inaugurated that same year, with a new prize: the Helveslip. In this archive, you will find the complete list of all the films ever selected and prized from 2015 to today.
