CineKink to Showcase Feminist Porn at 10th Annual Film Festival
NEW YORK — The 10th anniversary edition of CineKink NYC, “the kinky film festival,” that runs from Feb. 26 through March 3 will present an afternoon dedicated to feminist porn on its closing day.
Producer and performer Tristan Taormino will host ”The Feminsit Porn Show,” and play a selection of short clips she has curated from filmmakers around the world. The show highlights the work of both pioneers and newcomers, many whose works have previously screened at CineKink, and includes Candida Royalle, Annie Sprinkle, Nina Hartley, Jackie Strano and Shar Rednour, Petra Joy, Erika Lust, Shine Louise Houston, Anna Brownfield, Carlos Batts, N. Maxwell Lander, Emilie Jouvet, Louise Lush, Jaiya, Maria Beatty, Buck Angel, Madison Young, Courtney Trouble, Morty Diamond, Tobi Hill-Meyer, Kelly Shibari, Loree Erickson and more.
“I am so thrilled to bring ‘The Feminist Porn Show’ and a discussion about feminist porn to CineKink,” Taormino said. “CineKink is one of the only film festivals that supports and nurtures feminist porn, and creates space to talk about the politics that come along with it.”
Following Taormiino’s show will be “The Feminist Porn Panel” with filmmaker Candida Royalle, porn scholar Mireille Miller-Young, and sex-positive performers Jiz Lee, Sinnamon Love, Kelly Shibari, and Courtney Trouble for a discussion of their contributions to “The Feminist Porn Book: The Politics of Producing Pleasure (Feminist Press).”
Immediately following the panel, CineKink will host a reception and book signing.
CineKink’s annual competition and showcase, “Bring It” will follow the signing and feature an array of talent from today's adult cinema, all stepping up with a hot sampling of their recent creative endeavors.
Ticket prices are $10 for each individual program, $15 for the “The Feminist Porn Show and Panel,” or $25 for the entire afternoon, with additional discounts available for advance, online purchase. An all-access festival pass, including admission to all screenings and parties taking place during CineKink NYC, is also available.
The Festival's special day of feminist programming will take place at Anthology Film Archives at 32 Second Avenue, New York City.
A full festival schedule will be announced in early February. For more information and advance tickets, visit CineKink.com.
