FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CineKink Kicks off 2010 National Tour in Las Vegas
May 13 – 15, 2010
NEW YORK, NY – Tied Up Events and MakeLoveNotPorn are delighted to bring NYC’s only kinky film festival, CineKink NYC, to Las Vegas to begin its annual national tour. Starting with a wine and chocolate gala benefit at the Erotic Heritage Museum, Cinekink brings a specially curated program of films and videos that celebrate and explore the wide and exciting world of sexual diversity.
Billing itself as “the kinky film festival,” the event will run May 13-15, 2010 and offers, in addition to individual screening rates, budget friendly all-festival passes and special student/senior pricing. CineKink, now in its seventh year, is an organization dedicated to the recognition and encouragement of sex-positive and kink-friendly depictions in film and television. Works presented at CineKink will range from documentary to drama, comedy to experimental, mildly spicy to quite explicit – and everything in between.
The festivities begin Thursday, May 13th, at 8:30 PM, with a wine and chocolate gala at the Erotic Heritage Museum that includes film shorts by noted photographer, JM Darling, an erotic rope bondage performance by Reverse Tensionz, and an extra special performance from Peep Show by Dr. Carol Queen and of The Pinky Song by Alicyn Packard, along with other fun and kinky surprises. Funds raised from this benefit will go to support the museum and Cinekink.
The festival then moves to Onyx Theatre on Friday, May 14 through Saturday, May 15, with several different film and video programs scheduled for each day. A panel discussion featuring ULNV’s Dr. Lynn Comella, Good Vibrations’ Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen and director Felicia Giouzelis will follow Friday’s 6:45 screening of My Sexuality: A Sensory Experience.
The full festival schedule and tickets to the festival are available
Start off the festivities on Thursday, May 18 at 8:30 PM by joining us at the Erotic Heritage Museum for a benefit like no other. Complimentary hard cider generously donated by Original Sin Cider, wine and chocolate will tempt and tingle your taste buds while performances by Reverse Tensionz, Dr. Carol Queen and Alicyn Packard serve up visual and auditory stimulation. Film shorts from the festival and JM Darling will play in the museum’s theatre, tantalizing you with just a taste of what to expect when the festival moves to the Onyx Theatre. We’ll end the festivities with a raffle, giving you the chance to win erotic objects from Njoy, specialty rope from MauiKink, a gift basket from Kink Academy and much more.
Kicking off Friday, May 14 at 3:00 PM, WAXIE MOON features Boylesque sensation Waxie Moon taking the world of neo-burlesque by storm in this hilarious and thought-provoking portrait of one artist’s unlikely journey. Preceded by the short, THE SHEEP AND THE RANCH HAND, a funny, sexy romp in which a woman dreams she’s been transformed into a sheep. At 5:00 PM, a special industry 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 creative endeavors. At 6:45 PM, the documentary, MY SEXUALITY: A SENSORY EXPERIENCE, shines light on five ordinary women from different backgrounds, sexual preferences and past experiences as they experiment with five deliciously different activities intended to boost both sense of self and sexuality. This screening is immediately followed by a panel discussion featuring the film’s director, Felicia Giouzelis, UNLV’s Dr. Lynn Comella, Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen and others.
Cinekink concludes its Las Vegas kick off Saturday, May 15 at with four screenings. Beginning at 1:00 PM it’s YES, MISTRESS, the film shorts program that asks (and sometimes answers!) the question: “How may I be of service?” At 3:00 PM, SWINGERS has first-timers Diana and Julian inviting a couple they’ve met online to join them for an adventurous weekend in the country. At 5:00 PM we present S&M JUDGE, a compelling drama in which a respected judge finds his job, reputation and family life in jeopardy after he and his wife begin to explore sadomasochism. And, closing out the festival’s regular screening schedule at 7:00 PM it’s BEST OF CINEKINK featuring select shorts deemed the years best during the festival’s latest run at CINEKINK NYC. Head back to the Erotic Heritage Museum after the last screening for a closing party that will go until the clock strikes midnight. This party is free to those with who purchased an all events pass or attended the Thursday fundraiser (with stub or other proof) and $10 for all others. With a DJ, cash bar and other entertainment still to be announced, you’ll end the festival surrounded by your fellow revelers while benefiting the museum.
