Call for Entries – CineKink 2016

CineKink –“the kinky film festival”–is seeking films, videos and, for the first time, original digital series that explore and celebrate a wide diversity of sexuality.

Dedicated to the recognition and encouragement of sex-positive and kink-friendly depictions in film and television, we’re looking to blur some boundaries and will be considering offerings drawn from both Hollywood and beyond, with works ranging from documentary to drama, camp comedy to artsy experimental, mildly spicy to quite explicit–and everything in between.

Cutting across orientations, topics covered at CineKink have included–but are by no means limited to–BDSM, leather and fetish, swinging, non-monogamy and polyamory, roleplay and gender bending, sex work and sex geekery. Basically, as long as it involves consenting adults, just about anything celebrating sex as a right of self expression is fair game. (Far be it from us to define “kink” – if you think your work might make sense in this context, please send it along!)

Scheduled for its 13th annual appearance in February/March 2016, the specially-curated CineKink NYC will also feature a short film competition, audience choice awards, a special “Bring It!” adult entertainment showcase/contest, a gala kick-off event and a sexy closing-night party. A national tour will follow, showcasing favorites from the NYC festival selections.

“It’s rare to visit a festival where sexually-themed documentary, racy art film, and adult cinema can share a program together,” says CineKink alumni filmmaker Jennifer Lyon Bell. “As an independent adult cinema director, I enjoy hanging out with filmmakers from other genres and cross-pollinating ideas about sexuality.”

“Screening at CineKink is like being part of an amazing, warm and kinky family,” observes Morgana Muses, another festival alumnus. “Being part of CineKink has helped us find audiences who trust the curated tastes of the festival will excite and expand their own viewing habits.”
