Film director, producer, and manager of the Berlin Porn Festival, Jurgen Bruning, is scheduled to arrive in Israel as a guest of the Tel Aviv International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (TLVFEST) which will open June 18.


For the Tel Aviv festival, Bruning edited a special collection of films from the Berlin Festival which explore, he said, the fine lines differentiating porn, art and politics.


The festival program includes works from around the world and deal with a variety of subjects: the world of cyber-sex, same-sex relationships, a tribute to Divine and sado-drag.


"Some of the films contain explicit sex scenes and disturbing violence," says Yair Hochner ,the Tel Aviv's Festival's director of programming.


 "The festival particularly aspires to present Israeli audiences with important and world-renowned Queer works that are still unfamiliar to the local scene, to examine boundaries between art and pornography, to investigate social issues and to shed light on those who live their lives on the margins."
