Now it all makes sense! I keep wondering why the Canadian government is getting so anxious about giving tax credits to films with risque titles (even if there's nothing really risque inside the feature). They must've gotten a heads-up on whats going on in Sweden, and then imagined a Canadian cinematic landscape with films like Crash upped with dirty, Brown Bunny-like sex, or Where the Truth lies with much more, well, laying.

Variety reports that the Swedish Film Institute is going to fund a series of mobile phone-shot porn shorts. The shorts will all come together into a film called Dirty Diaries, and the Institute is giving the production $59,300 of its $76,200 budget. On the bright side, all of the shorts will be filmed by women who have almost free reign, aside from stipulations like the participants having to be at least 18, and can't be harmed, so it should be free of the usual treatment of sex in porn.

But really, why is the Institute funding pornography? It's not like it's a risque film people are calling porn. It's being described as a list of "porn shorts." And why do they need so much money to film sex on flipping mobile phones? Sure, there's transfer costs and the like, but this is just sounding silly. And, what's the benefit of having it shot on mobile phones? The art of grainy, lo-def sex?

How about you? Are you itching for some lo-def porn shorts from Sweden?
