The evening, along with all three nights of BedFEST, will take place at popular Austin live music, performance, and events venue, The North Door.
“Our last show in Austin was standing-room only, and I’m looking forward to presenting a shiny, new collection of kinky films to such an enthusiastic crowd,” says Lisa Vandever, Co-Founder and Director of CineKink. “I’m also excited to be working with the amazing women behind BedPost Confessions. They’ve done so much to expand our conversation around sexuality, I’m proud to be part of their event.”

Presenting stories in a cinematic form, especially in a town that loves film, is a great opportunity.”
