Held at the iconic Grand Lake Theater in Oakland, BRIEFS features a hosted screening by none other than Tourettes without Regrets founder Jamie Dewolf, and a non-hosted screening shortly after.

Films will be judged by all attendees, along with a handpicked group of special guests. A cash prize of $500 is awarded for the Judges' Choice and $1000 for the Audience Favorite.

Last year's judges were: Iconic queer pornstar, Jiz Lee; Owner and Founder of Feelmore510, Nenna Joiner; Gender rebel and Pleasure Professional at O.school, Q-Tip; Owner of Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe, Steve Mills; journalist, educator, performer, activist, and professional slut, Andre Shakti; and, ladies of the House of Kristine, Vivica K Montenegro, Sondra Rae Ayala & Tatiana Kristine.

Location for the after party & awards ceremony will also be announced soon, but attendees can most certainly expect controversial burlesque, wild interactive audience games, and jaw dropping dance performances creating an all-around crazy, fun event not intended for the light of heart!

BRIEFS teams up with various sponsors and partners who generously support the event. Last year's sponsors were: Drake's Brewing Co., Tourettes Without Regrets, Sacramento Horror Film Festival, PinkLabel.tv, The Watergarden, Feelmore510, and The Uptown Nightclub.
