(HOLLYWOOD, CA) -- View the video and film artists' visual explorations of cinematic Fetish, as the Los Angeles Fetish Film Festival [http://losangelesfetishfilmfestival.com], screens the 16 finalist entries in the first annual event, beginning at 12:00 PM (PST), Saturday, April 16, 2011, at CineFamily Theatre. Winners will be announced at the official Red Carpet Awards Show, at Bar Sinister beginning at 8:30 PM, the same evening.

While "fetish" has become somewhat of a stereotypical buzz word, it is not relegated to visions of men and women wrapped in leather. Entrants of the Los Angeles Fetish Film Festival, explore many different aspects of fetish, beyond that limited view. World renowned sexologist, author and director, Dr. Susan Block explains the scope of fetish, "A sexual fetish is a profound erotic desire for 'something'. That 'something' can be anything from high heels to hamburgers, from angora to airplanes, from money to mortuaries. One can even have a fetish for a concept, like fame, or a feeling, like love. Whatever the sexual fetish, the fetishist invests in it great sexual power."

Categories to be awarded cash prizes in the final trophy round include; "Best Feature," "Best Short," "The Director's Choice" and an award in honor of burlesque diva, Olivia Bellafontaine, the "Olivia's Favorite" award. Front runners for the finalist division include Vivian Darkbloom’s, ‘Indietro,' the political documentary on fetish, 'A Woman Under the Veil, directed by Bobbie Kitchens and the fetish driven psychological horror feature, 'American Fetish,' written and directed by Michael Simmons.

Screening of the Los Angeles Fetish Film Festival contestant entries in both the short film and feature film categories will be presented at CineFamily Theater, located at 611 N. Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, 90036. Tickets are available for the screening both in advance online at losangelesfetishfilmfestival.com and at the door. Entry is restricted to those 18 years of age and older. Screens will darken at 4:00 PM.

A red carpet arrival to the awards venue kicks off a night of deliciously deviant sensual overload, as live and recorded performance meet in the intimate sanctuary of Bar Sinister. Venus Prototype presents a special Fetish Fashion Show featuring her vinyl and latex creations. Erotic and scandalous performances will be presented by Sex and Metal and Miss Bellafontaine, while the Naked Catering team serves up temptation of another variety.

Judges for the 2011 Los Angeles Fetish Film Festival are festival producer and director, Simmons, fashion fetish photographer Alejandra Guerrero, publisher Erik von Gutenberg, fetish photographer Eric Kroll, film producer and director, Master Liam, Dr. Susan Block and Bellafontaine. The Official Media Sponsor for the event is von Gutenberg Media.

About Los Angeles Fetish Film Festival:

Founded in 2011 by movie director Michael Simmons, this event celebrates not only film and video makers that are creating entertainment concerning erotic visual presentations of fetishistic themes, but also mixes in performance art that is also themes to stimulate the senses by exploring fetish, bondage, BDSM and other aspects that are viewed as "fetish". But what is "fetish"? Fetish is sometimes defined as animating an inanimate object, breathing life into something that didn’t previously live or breathe. It is pure projection, ‘observer created’ sensual objectification. And of course, it is often erotic, which is the focus of the Los Angeles Fetish Film Festival.

About Michael Simmons:

Michael Simmons is President and Head Director of the production company American Fetish Films, which focuses on films with an erotic noir flavor. His first release is the fetish noir driven, psychological horror genre feature film, "American Fetish." His next project, outside of building the Los Angeles Fetish Film Festival into an international destination event, is production of his second mainstream release, 'LA Decadence,' shooting scheduled to begin in 2012.
