SAN FRANCISCO (November 18th) — Pink & White Productions’ Video on Demand website, PinkLabel.tv has joined forces with San Francisco Bay Area based retailer Good Vibrations to promote the 8th annual QUICKIES Indie Erotic Short Film Competition as Media Sponsor.
On Friday, December 6th, filmmakers from around the world will show their stuff at the historic Castro Theatre in San Francisco. Funny, serious, explicit, romantic, straight, queer, kinky, and more, the Quickies celebrates the range of sexuality with a fun and sexy party and screening of selected shorts, each 7 minutes or less.
As an online distributor of PinkLabel’s diverse adult films including shorts, documentaries, parodies, erotic art films and more that are range in sexualities heterosexual, queer, and kinky, the company is well-versed in the world of independent porn.
Several of PinkLabel’s directors were selected in prior QUICKIES screenings, including work by Louise Lush and performer/producer duo Dylan Ryan and Rozen DeBowe’s Tooth & Nail. With international connections and deep ties in the Bay Area porn scene, PINKLABEL was able to expand Good Vibrations’ reach and diversity of submissions. This year, the Feminist Porn Award’s “Best Short Film” BIODILDO is included in the selections, along with films by future PinkLabel filmmakers.
