CineKink Announces Kinky Line-Up for Annual Film Festival

April 3-7, 2019

NEW YORK, NY; March 19, 2019 – CineKink NYC returns for its 16th annual appearance on Wednesday, April 3, bringing with it a specially-curated program of films and videos that celebrate and explore a wide diversity of sexuality. In addition to screenings, plans for the festival also include a short film competition, presentations, audience choice awards, a fund-raising kick-off gala and a concluding “AfterGlow” play party.

Billing itself as “the kinky film festival,” the event will run April 3-7, 2019. Presented by CineKink, an organization dedicated to the recognition and encouragement of sex-positive and kink-friendly depictions in film and television, works presented at CineKink NYC will range from documentary to drama, comedy to experimental, mildly spicy to quite explicit – and everything in between.

“It’s stunning how sex-positive filmmaking has evolved in the years we’ve been presenting the festival,” said Lisa Vandever, co-founder and director of CineKink.”We had such amazing works to choose from this year, from both alumni filmmakers, whom we’ve showcased before, and many newcomers. It’s exciting to able to offer such a rich and diverse festival line-up.”

The CineKink NYC festivities commence Wednesday, April 3, at 8 PM, with a fundraising kick-off extravaganza to be held at M1-5 Lounge (52 Walker Street, NYC),

The festival then moves to Anthology Film Archives (32 Second Avenue, NYC) from Thursday, April 4,through Saturday, April 6, with several different film programs scheduled for each day.

A filmmaking workshop, an awards celebration and an AfterGlow play party at Bowery Bliss complete the festival’s run on Sunday, April 7.

WEDNESDAY

The CineKink festivities get going with the annual CINEKINK KICK-OFF GALA, taking place Wednesday, April 23 at 8 PM, a pansexual celebration that includes burlesque performances, sexy “sensation stations” for the kink-curious, a raffle of sex-positive swag, and some decadent cinematic morsels.

THURSDAY

First up, on Thursday, April 4 at 7:00 PM, the documentary THE ARTIST & THE PERVERT takes an intimate look at the complicated relationship between a world-renowned composer and his “slave” wife. Then, at 9:20 PM, a collection of lusty shorts, HOTELS & HOOK-UPS, explores libidinous pursuit, from a back-alley tumble to a high-thread count rendezvous.

FRIDAY

On Friday, April 5 at 7:00 PM, a set of masterful shorts, IN THE DARK, cruises through dungeons, parks and porn booths, exploring a bit of Leather pride and history along the way.

And at 9:20 PM, a sexy round-up of queer and feminist works, TAKING FLIGHT, travels to such magical places as a Brooklyn flat, a Berlin dungeon, a Nordic forest and the very gates of Heaven.

SATURDAY

Kicking off Saturday, April 6 at 1:00 PM, the shorts program, WORK IT!, profiles the passion – and work – that goes into making sex-positivity one’s mission and business.

At 3:00, a love letter to the movies, the documentary SICKIES MAKING FILMS, is an engaging, historical look at society’s urge to censor films.

At 5:00 PM, CineKink’s annual showcase, BRING IT!, features a dazzling array of talent from today’s adult cinema, each representing a wide range of genres and visual styles, all stepping up with a hot sampling of their recent endeavors.

At 7:45 PM, the romantic comedy TWO IN THE BUSH: A LOVE STORY, a wise and witty look at the world of bisexuality and polyamory, asks us to consider what risks are worth taking for love.

And at 10:00 PM, SWEET SPOT is a kinky collection of shorts that poke and play with the dynamics of scratching just that very particular itch.

 

SUNDAY

For those inspired to take on creating their own erotic cinema, an afternoon workshop, FROM FANTASY TO FILM: DESIGN YOUR OWN PORN FILM, will take place from 2:00 to 5:00 PM.

CineKink NYC concludes the evening of Sunday, April 7 at 7:00 PM, with the CINEKINK AWARDS CELEBRATION, including presentation of the annual festival awards, to be followed at 9:00 PM by the CINEKINK AFTERGLOW party, one last chance to mingle with like-minded festival-goers and enjoy a few additional screenings, this time in a relaxed, play-party setting.
