NEW YORK — Organizers for CineKink NYC/2013 announced today the recipients of awards in a range of categories during the film festival's 10th anniversary closing celebrations held on March 3.

"When we set off on our first year of CineKink, little did we think that one day we’d be celebrating a 'decade of decadence,'" noted Lisa Vandever, CineKink co-founder and director, as she presented the awards. "It's because of amazing, quality films that we've reached this important milestone and it's a pleasure to honor just a few of those tonight."

Audience Choice Awards were given to "Remedy" (Cheyenne Picardo) for Best Narrative Feature, with "Betty Page Reveals All" (Mark Mori) winning for Best Documentary Feature. The CineKink Choice awards were determined by audience ballot just following each eligible film's screening during the festival.

In the shorts competition, juried festival awards went to "Pinecone"(Michael Markham) for Best Comedy Short, "Krutch" (Matthew Clark) for Best Dramatic Short, "Impact" (Mollena Williams) for Best Experimental Short, and to "Zucht und Ordnung" (Jan Soldat) and "Ritual" (Jörg Fockele), which tied for Best Documentary Short. Honorable Best Mention awards were presented to "50 Seconds of 50 Shades" (Bo Blaze), "Amber" (Aven Frey, Gala Vanting and Frank Ly) and "Rift" (Keith Hodder).

Determining the shorts awards, CineKink jurors this year included Viviane Tang, ringleader of the sex blog "Viviane's Sex Carnival," Mike White, editor and publisher of the independent film-focused "Cashiers du Cinemart," and Bill Woods, a film festival programmer and curator of the New Filmmakers series at Anthology Film Archives.

The fourth annual CineKink "Bring It!" award, determined by audience ballot during a presentation of excerpts showcasing current adult cinema, went to "Joy Club" (Petra Joy).

The CineKink Tribute, recognizing extraordinary depictions of kink and sex-positivity in mainstream film and television, was presented to "Sessions" (Ben Lewin/Fox Searchlight) for its "amiable and often humorous assertion that sexual pleasure is an essential human right." Honorable mentions for the CineKink Tribute went to the film "Hysteria" (Tanya Wexler/Sony Pictures Classics) and to the TV show "Our America with Lisa Ling" (OWN), with a special "'Pokemon Polyamory' Farewell Tip of the Hat" presented to the outgoing series "30 Rock" for "introducing such terms as 'normaling' and 'sex idiot' in the American vernacular." Works eligible for consideration this year were those released or aired in the U.S. in 2012.

Selections from CineKink NYC will be featured in a traveling version of the festival, slated to appear in various cities throughout the coming year.
