CineKink, which bills itself as “the kinky film festival,” is looking for “films and videos, of any length and genre, that explore and celebrate a wide diversity of sexuality.” In the last decade, CineKink has screened an eclectic mix of documentaries and narrative movies, camp comedies, and experimental efforts, ranging from the “mildly spicy” to no-holds-barred sexually explicit fare.

According to its press release, CineKink is “dedicated to the recognition and encouragement of sex-positive and kink-friendly depictions in film and television.” Possible topics include “BDSM, leather and fetish, swinging, non-monogamy and polyamory, roleplay and gender bending, sex work, and sex geekery.”

At CineKink 2013, entries included Cheryl Dunye's romantic sex comedy Mommy Is Coming; Mark Mori's documentary Bettie Page Reveals All; Hunter Stone's short Getting Off, in which a dying man “struggles valiantly to go out in the very moment of orgasmic bliss”; the compilation of video shorts Strange Live Acts; and Courtney Trouble's lesbian sex feature Lesbian Curves.

CineKink 2014 will take place in February 2014. It will be followed by a national tour “showcasing favorites from the NYC festival selections.” Note: discounted, early-bird entries have a post-marked deadline of October 11, 2013; the regular deadline is Nov. 15, and the final deadline is December 6.
