A dancer at the 2006 FICEB
Barcelona International Erotic Film Festival or FICEB ( Festival Internacional de Cinema Eròtic de Barcelona in Catalan) is an annual Spanish pornographic film festival and awards ceremony. It is the oldest adult film festival in Europe. [3 ]
The event dates from 1992.
[4 ] Since 1997, it has been held in the La Farga convention center in [3 ] L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, a town outside Barcelona. [5 ] [1 ] [2 ] In 2005, the event was recognized by the regional [6 ] government of Catalonia, but, in 2006, the L'Hospitalet municipal government controversially voted not to renew the festival's contract, requiring it to seek a new location ( [4 ] Madrid) for 2007-08. [5 ] The FICEB moved to Madrid in 2008 [3 ] and was held at the Room Fabrik. [7 ] [1 ] [2 ]
Compared to the analogous
Hot d'Or film festival in Cannes, the Barcelona festival has been called less exclusive and more comprehensive. Besides film awards and star appearances, the five days of FICEB include hundreds of strip-tease and live sex shows, as well as a lingerie show and a sex product fair with adult toys. [8 ] [9 ] The event exists, in part, to promote the [6 ] sex industry in Spain by promoting the domestic production of adult films and organizing discussion forums. At or above 50,000 people attended the festival in 2005, 2006 and 2007. [6 ] [4 ] [10 ] The FICEB has served as launching pad for actresses, actors and [3 ] directors such as: Sophie Evans, Celia Blanco, Nacho Vidal, Max Cortés, Sara Bernat and Toni Ribas. [6 ]
The Mexico Erotic Festival is backed by the same group responsible for the Barcelona Erotic International Erotic Film Festival.
FICEB awards [ edit ]
The FICEB has three awards for different categories of pornographic films, the
Ninfa ( Nymph - where there are some twenty-eight categories ) for heterosexual pornography, the [7 ] HeatGay for gay pornography films and the Tacón de Aguja ( High heel or Stiletto heel) for BDSM and sexual fetish films. [12 ] The year 2002 was the first year with a "Short Film Competition X" at the FICEB, where the winner of that contest was endowed with 2,400 [13 ] Euros and second place was awarded 1,200 Euros. [6 ]
The following is a list of the winners in the major categories for the Ninfa awards
