The HUMP! annual film festival in Seattle, Washington, initiated in 2005, showcases home-movie erotica, amateur sex cinema, and locally produced pornography.[1] Films are rated by the audience, and awards are given. The films are then destroyed before the live audience at the final showing of the festival, by the master of ceremonies, Dan Savage. However, the recognition has become so significant that several films which had premiered at HUMP! have been re-released and achieved significant commercial success, most notably among them the gay feature "Lawnboy" and Gloria Brame's short mockumentary, "How To Get A Leg Up In Porn."[2]In 2007 the short film which won "best hardcore" was produced by Two Big Meanies and starred Ms. Leather Washington State, Miss Candy, titled "Lauren Likes Candy."[3]

At the 2009 Sundance film festival an independent film featured the HUMP! film festival in the subject of the film. Filmmaker Lynn Shelton's feature about two straight men making a gay porno film entry for the HUMP! film festival, titled "Humpday," opened to strongly positive reviews.[4][5][6][7]
