CINEKINK RETURNS TO NYC
Cinekink, the festival that can lay claim to being truly alternative kicks, off tonight with an 8pm gala and fundraiser at the Kush Lounge, 191 Chrystie Street. Screening will be three shorts — Petra Joy’s Artcore, Chuck Renslow’s The Blue Rose, and Eva Midgley’s Erotic Moments. Tomorrow the fest moves over to the Anthology Film Archives with screenings of Daryl Wein’s doc Sex Positive and Robert Pratten’s erotic horror film MindFLESH. Other highlights include Barbara Bell and Anna Lorentzon’s Slamdance-premiering doc Graphic Sexual Horror, which looks at how the U.S. Patriot Act was used to shutter the extreme bondage website Insex, and Un Piede di Roman Polanski, a short directed by Filmmaker contributor Lauren Wissot and Roxanne Kapista.
