With screenings at the Downtown Independent and the Echo Park Film Center, CINEKINK: LOS ANGELES will offer a specially-curated program of films and videos that celebrate and explore a wide and exciting world of sexual diversity, with works ranging from documentary to drama, comedy to experimental, mildly spicy to quite explicit - and everything in between.
The festivities commence on Friday, October 8th at 8 pm, at the Echo Park Film Center. Kicking things off, in a screening that also includes a collection of past festival offerings culled from CineKink’s talented roster of Los Angeles-based alumni filmmakers, “boylesque” sensation WAXIE MOON takes the world of neo-burlesque by storm in a thought-provoking and hilarious documentary look at one artist's unlikely journey.
On Saturday the action moves to the Downtown Independent for a full day of screenings and celebration.
Beginning at 2:00 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 4:00 PM, the film shorts program YES, MISTRESS asks (and sometimes answers!) the question: “How may I be of service?”
At 6:00 PM, in the award-winning drama S&M JUDGE, a respected judge finds his job, reputation and family life in jeopardy after he and his wife begin to explore sadomasochism.
At 8:00 PM, BEST OF CINEKINK features select, award-winning shorts deemed the year’s best during the festival's latest annual run at CineKink NYC.
And at 9:30 PM, it’s up to the rooftop for CINEKINK UNDER THE STARS, a festive celebration in the Downtown Independent’s beautiful roof garden, which will feature mixing and mingling, live performances and a kinky raffle!
On Sunday, the closing screenings for CINEKINK: LOS ANGELES take place back at Echo Park Film Center. At 7:30 PM, MY SEXUALITY: A SENSORY EXPERIENCE shines light on five ordinary women from different backgrounds, sexual preferences and past experiences as they experiment with activities intended to boost both sense of self and sexuality.
And at 9:00 PM, MODERN LOVE IS AUTOMATIC rounds out the weekend with the darkly comic tale of an apathetic nurse who moonlights as a dominatrix, her aspiring model roommate, and the sad, strange world in which they live.
