Cinekink NYC

Thursday, 01 August 2024 until Sunday, 04 August 2024

CineKink is gearing up for our 2024 season... and we'd love to consider your work for the festivities!

Dedicated to the recognition and encouragement of sex-positive and kink-friendly depictions in film and television, we are seeking projects that explore and celebrate the wide diversity of sexuality for our NYC-based festival and virtual encores, and a national screening series to follow.

We’re looking to blur some boundaries and will consider offerings of any length and genre drawn from both the independent film world and the adult, with works ranging from documentary to drama, camp comedy to artsy experimental, mildly spicy to quite explicit — and everything in between. 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, do send it along. Nonetheless, please read ALL guidelines before submitting, and make sure your work fits with our sex-focused niche!!)

In addition to our annual NYC festival run, presently planned for August 1-4, 2024, with virtual encores to follow, we also award and showcase CineKink works as below:

Features (over 40 minutes):
All submitted feature works selected for competition at CineKink NYC will be eligible to receive an Audience Choice award, as determined by audience balloting.

Shorts (40 minutes and under):
CineKink will present awards to short films and videos identified by our jury as "best" in a variety of categories during the course of the festival. These shorts will be included in the festival's touring showcase to represent the "Best of CineKink" for the year following their award.

Excerpts (5-25 minutes)
CineKink will present awards to excerpted work identified by our audience as their favorite during a special “Bring It!” adult entertainment competition during the festival. Other excerpts may also be eligible, as determined by the festival director, to be included in the best shorts competition. All excerpts programmed for CineKink NYC will be considered eligible for inclusion in the touring showcase and will be selected for that on a case-by-case basis, as determined by the festival director.

Original Digital Series (up to 60 minutes total)
CineKink may present awards to original digital series/episodes identified by our jury as “best” in a variety of categories. These series will be considered for inclusion in the festival’s touring showcase to represent the “Best of CineKink” for the year following their award. All series/episodes programmed for CineKink NYC will be considered eligible for inclusion in the touring showcase and will be selected for that on a case-by-case basis, as determined by the festival director.
