2010 Cinekink Film Festival: Award Winners
The seventh annual CineKink Film Festival in NYC gave all kinds of perverts and kinky-minded individuals a warm haven during the cold month of February, Feb. 16-21 specifically. Lots of sexy fare was screened at the venerated Anthology Film Archives, but the sexiest of the sexiest? That would be these award-winning films listed below.
Your average kinky film fan was given the chance to vote for several Audience Choice Awards, but there was also a jury of super kinksters voting on short films; plus the ultimate kinky players, i.e. the staff of the CineKink fest itself, gave out a handful of special awards.
The licentious jury voting on short films consisted of Underground Film Journal pal Mike White of the legendary zine Cashiers du Cinemart, Lolita Wolf of the Leather Yenta (NSFW) blog and Bill Woods of the long-running New Filmmakers screening series.
Finally, before we get to the full list of winners — and congrats to ’em all! — I want to give a special shout-out to Zach Clark and his fantastically twisted underground comedy Modern Love Is Automatic, which won a Special Festival Award for Creative Vision. Plus, I’m happy to see Loretta Hintz‘s sexy lesbian bestiality flick The Sheep and the Ranch Hand received a short film Honorable Mention.
