(PORTLAND, OR) -- The 2013 CineKink Festival Tour hits the ground running this weekend, with a one-night screening of sex-positive and kink-friendly films in Portland, Oregon on Sunday, August 4. CineKink PDX will begin at 7pm with a screening of the "Best of CineKink/2013," followed by the full-length, audience-award-winning film Remedy, at 9pm. All screenings will take place at the Clinton Street Theater.
"I’m originally from Portland, and it’s always fun to come home to show off the year’s kinky best," says Lisa Vandever, CineKink co-founder and director. "We’re excited to be an official event of Oregon Leather Pride, once again, and we’re looking forward to a great turnout!"
The "Best of CineKink/2013" short films program is comprised of productions awarded prizes by CineKink jurors at the annual CineKink NYC festival, which takes place each year in late February. With works ranging from documentary to drama, comedy to experimental, mildly spicy to quite explicit, this year’s edition includes 50 Seconds of 50 Shades (Bo Blaze), Naked Love: Ea’s Garden (Sara Kimmel), Impact (Mollena Williams), Rift (Keith Hodder), Ritual (Jörg Fockele), Zucht Und Ordnung (Jan Soldat), Amber (Aven Frey, Gala Vanting, and Frank Ly), Krutch (Clark Matthews), and Pinecone (Michael Markham).
Immediately following the shorts program, CineKink will present the award-winning dramatic feature, Remedy, with filmmaker Cheyenne Picardo attending for a post-screening Q&a. Based on her personal experiences in the world of professional domination and submission, Remedy received an Audience Choice Award for Best Narrative Feature at the New York festival.
