CockyBoys Films Screening at Berlin Porn Film Festival
NEW YORK — CockyBoys announced today that two of its films have been selected to be screened at the 2014 Berlin Porn Film Festival. Now in its 9th year, the festival will run Oct. 22-26 in Berlin at the Cinema Moviemento.
One of the titles to be screened is “Fuck Yeah Levi Karter,” a documentary featuring an intimate look at the CockyBoy star's life and fast rise to porn stardom before winning Best New Porn Star at both the 2014 Grabbys and Cybersocket awards.
The others is “Answered Prayers:The Banker,” part one of an allegory "set against an ancient family feud and the follies of men." The five-part mini-series was profiled in The Village Voice, with a multi-page story detailing the inspiration behind the gay adult feature.
Both films will screen Saturday, Oct. 25, at 9:15 p.m. with an encore screening of both films on Sunday, Oct. 26, at 5 p.m.
CockyBoys' Owner and Director Jake Jaxson, along with Director of Photography RJ Sebastian and Creative Director Benny Moorecock, will be on hand to introduce the films and do a Q&A with the audience after the screenings.
CockyBoy exclusives Levi Karter and Ricky Roman and CockyBoys' editor Cilantro Che Guevara will also be in Berlin for the festival.
The day before the screenings, CockyBoys will be holding a fan appreciation event in Berlin on Oct. 24 at a time and place TBD.
"I am very excited that our work has been chosen to be a part of this visionary film festival,” Jaxson said. “The collaborative efforts that have gone into these two films have been a highlight of my career. I am even more excited to bring our team to this event so they can see their work highlighted and appreciated in this very special venue.”
Festival Founder Jürgen Brüning adds, "I started the festival because I thought … I’ve worked in film for a long time, and I've had explicit images in my films and my productions, so there was always this discussion [of] is this porn or is this art? I was kind of fed up and at a certain point it came together that a lot of artistic people and independent filmmakers, and even people from the porn industry, were trying new things and I thought there has to be a festival where these films and videos can be shown.”
He notes that he receives no public funding for the festival and has only a few sponsors, “but we have a very great audience and we have fantastic filmmakers from all over the world."
