Jennifer Lyon Bell

Jennifer Lyon Bell is the founder of independent film company Blue Artichoke Films in Amsterdam. She directs and produces creative erotic films that portray sexuality in an emotionally realistic way. These films win prizes from not just the porn industry, but from art film festivals and sexology associations worldwide. Her work includes both cinema and Virtual Reality; her pioneering erotic 360º 3D VR experience “Second Date” was, for many international festivals, the first erotic film they ever screened. Jennifer is a former brand strategist who now helps educate brands, agencies, and everyday folks about the value and power of representing sexuality ethically in the media. She does this through her talks (e.g. Cannes Lions and Eurobest), internationally popular erotic filmmaking workshops, writing for academia and pop culture magazines, “sex scene advisor” work for TV and film, and consulting.
