MIX COPENHAGEN: This Is How We Do It

Mix Copenhagen film festival

MIX COPENHAGEN celebrates 10 days of events, debates, concerts, and an impressive line-up of films, including several adult works found on PinkLabel.tv in its This Is How We Do It Screening. Here’s a peek:

This Is How We “Do” It

Get it? With this short film program we show a small selection of the vast diversity of sex-positive, queer, feminist, and LGBT porn that has thrilled audiences and juries at porn film festivals over the past few years. Trans and queer people in particular are claiming their place both in front of and behind the camera and demanding to determine how their bodies, desires, and identities are represented. It’s porn that’s meant to enlighten, entertain, and most of all excite – and to show and celebrate the diversity, creativity, and enthusiasm that characterizes contemporary LGBTQ porn. Bonus: Some film makers will be in attendance. After the film screening there will be a debate about queer porn. (Source: mixcopenhagen.dk)

Adult Filmmaker Anna Brownfield is at it again, this time bringing us an erotic docudrama that celebrates the development of sex and sexuality in Australia.

Set in the same bedroom — over six decades — The Bedroom revels in sexual diversity and evolutions from The Pill to the sex toy revolution. It features an all-star cast of Australia’s hottest porn performers including Angela White, 2014 Feminist Porn Award-winning Heartthrob Zahra Stardust, Chloe B, Lily Rei, and more.

(SAY WOT?!) UK’s WOTEVER DIY Queer Film Festival

WOTsmut WOTever Film Festival UK queer porn DIY Alternative Indie Porn

Now in its third year, the WOTEVER Film Festival showcases the best DIY, queer film from UK’s queer community proving that you don’t need a million pounds to make a great film! The 2014 programme offers huge variety of films from all over the world on topics from as fat positivity, lesbian football players in South Africa, love after death and waltzing with tomatoes, and pornography in their WOTSMUT screening.

Why Variety is Important
“Growing up sexual images and attitudes were all around, porn was considered a sin and bad for nice girls like me…

Then I grew up and decided I was not 100% a girl, and not that nice anyway… but where would I find the images that excited me?? Bodies like mine, sexual acts I liked?

Me and other Queers started to do our own, gender fluid, exciting porno shoots involving people who shared their lust and humor with us… you will see some of these films from Spain, Germany, Sweden and UK Filmed with and by Queer Feminists who will talk about why they take part and do this.”

WOT SMUT is divided into the following broad themes:

FINDING AND USING UNUSUAL LOCATIONS

The Library, Sweden, 1:56
Quick use of one of Sweden’s oldest University buildings.

Cruising, Berlin, 11.26
A scene set in the afternoon by the canal

POLITICAL MESSAGES

Three, Bodily Fluids Amongst Safe Partners, London,10.53

Cunts in the C(o)untryside, Sweden, 9.56
Doing a ‘classic gay male cruise scene’ with women and genderqueers.

Trio In Da Woods, Sweden, 12.31
Turning the roles around: Attacker, bully and victim.

Perving 12.31
Jocks and sportswear, muscles playing in the sunshine.

HUMOUR

Meat, Hard-hitting Hunting season in the Norwegian Woods, Norway, 5:20

Space Labia, Berlin, 9.04
In a dentist’s office…

Interviews with some of the actors sharing their experience of being in front of the camera, and with AK, Ulrika and R who have all been part of some of the films shown.

Curated and Lead by Ingo, Founder and Director of Wotever World

QUEER PORN AUCTION: Own a Piece of Porn History: Buy “The Crash Pad” Original Video Camera



EXT. ATA, LADYFEST 2005, SAN FRANCISCO – NIGHT

As the short film screening at Ladyfest 2005 ends, throngs of riot girls mill about, socializing. Shawn and Shae have both been volunteering to help curate and organize the film festival. They stand outside talking about the films they just saw and wishing on the future.

Shae

I would love to make some porn, like, from our generation. Is there anything out there right now?

Shawn

I have a filmmaker friend who wants to as well. She’s writing a script. I’ll introduce you.

Shae

I got a camera. Lets do it.

Two weeks later.

INT. MUDDY WATERS, CHURCH ST, SAN FRANCISCO – NIGHT

Shine Louise Houston and Shae sit together at a tiny coffee shop table. It wobbles a bit and they ignore it as they review the storyboards of Shine’s demo script. This is the first time they have ever met, but their dispositions blend nicely. By the end of the meeting, Shae offers to shoot the demo scene for free, just to try out her new camera.

 

What they filmed helped secure the financial backing to produce The Crash Pad, jumpstarting the queer porn revolution and inspiring the works of future directors to come.

 

THE AUCTION

Pink & White Productions has placed one of the original video cameras up for auction on EBay over San Francisco Pride Weekend, raising money for the Bay Area queer community by selling a piece of queer porn history. The company auctions the original Panasonic video camera used to film the company’s breakthrough debut film, The Crash Pad.

Shae Voyeur

Co-director Shae Voyeur on the set of The Crash Pad. 2005

 

THE CAMERA

The Panasonic AG-DVX100A still sells online for about $800.00 from trusted retailers. I picked it up brand new at 2,750.00 when it came out in 2004. At that time it was the hot camera for independent filmmakers. In 2004, CNET called it “the kind of camera that sends shivers down the spines of pro videographers and serious amateurs with modest budgets.” The site boasted that it was a digital camera that could shoot video that looked like film. It offered various frame rate options, including the infamous 24 frames a second. At the time it “made news by being the only 24P camera available for less than $25,000,” CNET wrote.

That’s how we shot Shine Louise Houston’s groundbreaking feature film The Crash Pad. We are now auctioning off the original camera that shot the movie, with a starting of $400. After the auction, 20% of the proceeds above $400 will be donated to CUAV (Communities United Against Violence, a non-profit that works to build the power of LGBTQQ (lesbian, gay,bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning) communities to transform violence and oppression.

 

THE HISTORY

After The Crash Pad, the camera went on to shoot the CrashPadSeries.com for a few years with the amazing DIY lenses that Shine built. Jiz Lee squirted on it during the making of the original The Crash Pad movie. Vai squirted on it in the first season of the CrashPadSeries.com. And Lorelei Lee squirted on it during the making of Feminist Porn Award’s “Hottest Dyke Scene” winner Superfreak. (The camera was not harmed in the making of any of these scenes!)

 

HELP PROMOTE

Lorelei Lee posed with the camera when she came to set to film the CrashPad’s Guide to Fisting. Use these images to help promote the auction, or contact us at jiz@pinkwhite.biz for more. (Click thumbnails for larger images.)

The auction runs seven days, ending on Tuesday, July 1st. For more information, camera specs, and to place a bid, visit: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Panasonic-DVX100A-Professional-MiniDV-10x-Video-Camera-with-a-Sexy-History-/331243405842

SLOW PORN: Sensate Films’ Ethical Erotic Works



Pink & White Productions is proud to add “slow porn” company Sensate Films to its fair-trade video on demand hub, PinkLabel.tv. Directed by Gala Vanting and Aven Frey, Sensate premieres their wildly-acclaimed first film, Amber, and subsequent female fantasy trilogy: TakenFlare, with the soon to be released third in the series, PreOccupied, staring Feminist Porn Awards’ Heartthrob of the Year, Zahra Stardust. 

What is the “Slow Porn Movement?”

As described by Sensate Films: The mass-production mentality of the adult industry draws producers into its ‘more, faster!’ mindset and mode of production. This often sacrifices both the quality of the product and the experience of its creation. Our response to this is to slow down. This gives us the time and presence to pay attention to those details that the mainstream so often misses; the quality of a breath, the words in a whisper. It gives our contributors the time to make choices about their representation, and also to take their time, to indulge themselves, to respond to the process of being documented. We are holding ourselves to the standards of other ‘slow’ movements and focussing on the wider impact of our work on our contributors, our audience, and ourselves. We value sustainability of energies and ethics in what we create. In so doing, we hope to generate change in the way that erotic imagery is experienced.

Vanting draws from a diverse background in sexuality and brings a conscious queer feminist approach to her work. Central to all of this is the core value of intimacy and the democratization of sexy.

“This is the first time we’ve undertaken any substantial form of distribution (bar homemade DVDs sold from suitcases in front of queer bars, which was also good) and I am honored to have our work curated into PinkLabel’s offerings,” says Vanting.

“I also appreciate that the PinkLabel.tv platform makes space for those of us who don’t produce in commercial volume, because there aren’t many channels through which we can sell and be paid fairly for our work. Because we make what we call ‘slow porn’, which often intersects genre and which takes a highly stylized approach, we are often nestled between genres or categories and this makes it hard to access either pornographic or traditional independent film distribution networks. PinkLabel.tv has an overwhelmingly inclusive approach, not just to bodies and sexualities, but also to the ways in which porn and erotic film can take shape.”

KEYHOLE SESSIONS: No Artificial Sweeteners

No Artificial Sweeteners

Pink & White Productions is proud to add Toronto-based company Keyhole Sessions to its fair-trade video on demand hub, PinkLabel.tv. Directed by Sonya JF Barnett AKA The Madame, Keyhole Sessions marks its premiere with the 2014 Feminist Porn Awards’ Sexiest Short Film No Artificial Sweeteners and The Keyhole Sessions’ first Urban Peepshows: “Drips, Clicks, Squirts.”

The Keyhole Sessions recently ventured into film through the use of accessible smartphone video technologies. No Artificial Sweeteners was shot entirely on the iPhone 5. Along with Lust Cinema, Pink & White Productions will be among the first to offer video on demand distribution to the new producer via the company’s fair-trade site: PinkLabel.tv.

KeyHole Sessions

“I can’t express how excited I am that PinkLabel.tv is distributing my work,” The Madame shares. “To be recognized early in my porn producing career with two Feminist Porn Awards, then dealing with a company I respect, for both its ethics and artists, is an honor. I have been following these artists for some time, and to now have my work alongside their’s is incredibly inspiring. I’m a firm proponent of celebrating sexuality, and Pink & White Productions certainly does that in spades.”

A two-time recipient of the Feminist Porn Awards, Keyhole Sessions states: “We want to show that adult cinema’s boundaries can be pushed not with how much a woman’s body can endure, but how much pleasure she can feel and share. Sex isn’t just about the happy ending, it’s about the whole journey.”

NOW PLAYING: CrashPad’s Guide to Fisting (Queer Porn meets Sex Ed!)

CrashPad's Guide to Fisting

Queer porn meets sex ed in CrashPad’s Guide to Fisting, the first “experts guide” to feature the sensual and consensual act of fisting. 

Starring Lorelei Lee and Beretta James, the short educational sex film offers a beginners’ introduction from the perspective of a lesbian couple watching episodes on CrashPadSeries.com. They browse videos featuring vaginal and anal fisting as demonstrated by performers including Maybelline & Mariah Cherry Christmas Special, Jacqueline Woods & Stefani Special, and Red Jackhammer & Javier. Even the CrashPad’s voyeur  — played by director Shine Louise Houston — gets in on the action. (Fun fact: Shine’s background includes being a trained sex educator!)

CrashPad's Guide to Fisting

CrashPad is known for its depictions of consensual sex and its collaboration with performers who call the shots. Filming the guide gave its stars a chance to role-play a beginners’ introduction to fisting. (Fans of the series will note that both Lorelei and Beretta are obviously no strangers to fisting, as evidenced in their prior appearances.)

In CrashPad’s Guide to Fisting, Lorelei and Beretta watch various episodes, then talk and fuck their way through a hot one-on-one educational sex scene, demonstrating how to fist through first-hand experience.

“It will be fun,” says Lorelei to Beretta, whose curiosity is piqued. “We’ll talk our way through everything and communicate the whole time.”

CrashPad’s Guide to Fisting is free to CrashPadSeries.com members, and is also available to stream video on demand, right here at PinkLabel.tv. Here’s a short trailer:

Pink & White Does Canada: The 2014 Feminist Porn Awards & Conference!

Feminist Porn Awards

It’s feminist porn season, and our fair-trade VOD site PinkLabel.tv is an official sponsor of the 2014 Feminist Porn Awards!

The 9th Annual Feminist Porn Awards (presented by sex-positive Canadian sex shop Good For Her) will take place April 3-4 in Toronto, Ontario. Feminist porn is a framework used to define and discuss pornography created by a growing number of female, independent, and queer pornographers (like much of the work on PinkLabel.tv). Its definition often includes production ethics with gender equality and socio-economic values at its core. Many describe it in relation to expanding conventional ideas about desire and beauty standards, sex-positive ideas of gratification and power dynamics, and ethical notions of equal pay, performer sexual health and consent. And, it’s hot!

Here’s the play-by-play of what we’ll be up to. Follow #FPAwards and #FPCon2 on Twitter, and @PinkLabelVOD.
