The 2013 festival saw Audience Choice Award honors given to “Remedy” (Cheyenne Picardo) for Best Narrative Feature with “Betty Page Reveals All” (Mark Mori) winning for Best Documentary Feature. In the shorts competition, juried festival awards went to “Pinecone” (Michael Markham) for Best Comedy Short, “Krutch” (Matthew Clark) for Best Dramatic Short, “Impact” (Mollena Williams) for Best Experimental Short, and to “Zucht und Ordnung” (Jan Soldat) and “Ritual” (Jörg Fockele), tied for Best Documentary Short. Honorable Best Mention awards were presented to “50 Seconds of 50 Shades” (Bo Blaze), “Amber” (Aven Frey, Gala Vanting and Frank Ly) and “Rift” (Keith Hodder). The annual CineKink “Bring It!” award, determined by audience vote during a showcase of current adult cinema, went to “Joy Club” (Petra Joy).
CineKink is currently completing its 2013 tour with a series of screenings in Australia, a first for the organization, concluding a season that also saw the festival visiting Portland, San Francisco, Austin, Chicago, Berlin, and more.
