'Marriage 2.0' to Screen at CineKink Film Festival in Portland
SAN FRANCISCO — “Marriage 2.0,” the groundbreaking adult movie that artfully addresses the complex question of whether it's possible to have a committed relationship based on sexual honesty, will be screening in its entirety at the Clinton Street Theater in Portland at 9 p.m. on August 5th.
The screening is part of the national tour of the CineKink Film Festival, where "Marriage 2.0" won the coveted Audience Choice Award For Best Narrative Feature.
"I was shocked and honored when 'Marriage 2.0' was first recognized by CineKink and the festival audience and I am even more grateful for CineKink's continued support of the movie, as full length features are rarely screened as part of the tour,' said “Marriage 2.0” screenwriter and producer, Magnus Sullivan.
'”Marriage 2.0” is a beautiful and artistic look at the changing nature of our relationships and the growing phenomenon of ethical non-monogramy,' said Lisa Vandever, CineKink co-founder and director. 'What especially attracted me to the film was how it deals with potential conflicts like jealousy and insecurity, not glossing over them, but showing the importance of communication and honesty in moving beyond them to reap the potential rewards at hand.
"The story of 'Marriage 2.0' is a very relatable one for many couples who are looking to maintain intimacy and connection while seeking the excitement and spark of other explorations. As our audience award reflects, there's a real hunger for this type of story and I expect great mainstream appeal for 'Marriage 2.0.'"
