The position of most nominated lesbian studio exemplifies the extraordinary year Girlfriends Films experienced, from launching bestselling series "Budapest," "Net Skirts" and "Pin-Up Girls," to setting higher standards within the adult industry regarding the treatment of cast, employees and consumers, as well as philanthropic duty.

Often referred to as the leader in lesbian erotica, Girlfriends Films’ series "Women Seeking Women" received the Best All-Girl Series award the past three years. In 2010, the series was also presented with the XRCO award for Best All-Girl Series. The series’ success, as well as the critical and retail success of all of Girlfriends Films’ series, derives from realistic lesbian sex. A Girlfriends Films performer must be more than beautiful; she must be genuinely passionate about other women. Likewise, a Girlfriends Film scene must be more than sex; it must provide captivating scenarios and capture true chemistry.
Critics around the entertainment industry also rave about Girlfriends Films. Apache Warrior of XCritic.com writes, "[‘Women Seeking Women’] has to be the front-runner to win Best All-Girl Series for a forth straight year…This series deserves a win!" the Phoenix, a popular weekly city paper in the New England area writes, "Up-and-cumming studio Girlfriends Films flips the paradigm with muff-munching movies hot enough to make women and men pop their respective corks…Quite possibly the steamiest Sapphic excursion this side of Lindsay Lohan’s jail cell."
On top of her XBIZ nomination for MILF Performer of the Year, Girlfriends Films contract star India Summer was declared the MILF of the Year by review site CAVR.com. India is the lead in recent Girlfriends Films productions "Lesbian PsychoDramas 5" and "Bus Stops 3," which demonstrate her beauty, energy and sexuality.
