Huge thanks to the CineKink jury who awarded Matinée the Best Short Narrative Film award. Glad they agreed with the warm and enthusiastic audience, one of whom told us, "It was like something you'd see on IFC or the Sundance channel, but with, y'know, sex!"

We’re thrilled to announce that Matinée won the jury award for Best Short Narrative Film at CineKink NYC, The X-Rated Sundance!

 

This year’s jury included Bill Woods, a film festival programmer and curator of the New Filmmakers series at Anthology Film Archives, Steven Speliotis, a photographer and CineKink alumni director, and Viviane, ring-leader of the sex blog, “Viviane’s Sex Carnival.”

 

Thanks to the jury, and also our warm thanks to the many film attendees who waited in line to tell us what they liked about Matinée. Our favorite comments included: “It was like something you’d see on IFC or the Sundance channel, but with, y’know, sex!” and “That was really hot. Me and my girlfriend were supposed to meet friends for drinks right now, but we just decided it’d be more fun to go home and have sex first.” We’ll take that as a compliment.
