Winners Announced for CineKink 2020 Film Festival

NEW YORK — Winners of the CineKink 2020 Film Festival were announced during a virtual ceremony Sunday night, including the CineKink Artist Spotlight, designed to recognized outstanding artistry over a body of work, to Shine Louise Houston.

The 17th annual edition of CineKink, originally scheduled for last spring, pivoted to a virtual presentation in the wake of coronavirus lockdowns and broadcast from December 2-6 on Houston’s PinkLabel.tv.

“We’re so very grateful that we were finally able to present these works to our audience,” CineKink Co-Founder and Director Lisa Vandever said. “Congratulations and thanks are in order, not just to the winners tonight, but to all of the filmmakers for contributing to this year’s outstanding lineup.”

The 2020 CineKink Artist Spotlight honoree Shine Louise Houston has exhibited films at CineKink since 2008, including this year’s “The Camera & I,” “Tickle Takedown” and “Writing in Bed.”

“In addition, Houston’s creation and curation of the streaming platform PinkLabel.tv has opened up resources for independent adult filmmakers and festivals, allowing them to bring their works to a global audience,” noted a festival rep.
