TORONTO — Good for Her, Tristan Taormino, and The Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies announced the dates and submission deadlines today for the 2014 Feminist Porn Awards and the 2nd Annual Feminist Porn Conference.

The 9th Annual Feminist Porn Awards will be held April 3 and 4, in Toronto. The events include a screening of nominated films with directors, producers and performers in attendance as well as the Feminist Porn Awards Gala at the Capitol Theatre.

The Feminist Porn Awards have been celebrating diverse sexuality, desire, and ethically produced porn since 2006. They offer audiences an alternative to mainstream porn and access to films that are sometimes not available to a wider audience.

“We’re very excited about receiving this year’s submissions,” says Carlyle Jansen, founder of Good for Her and The Feminist Porn Awards. “Every year we have an even more diverse group of films by people of all sexes, genders, bodies and desires to share with our growing audience. We look forward to seeing what expanded feminist expressions of porn look like on screen, and seeing more locally produced films.”

The deadline for submissions to the Feminist Porn Awards is Jan. 17.

The 2nd Annual Feminist Porn Conference will take place April 5 and 6, at the University of Toronto. The deadline to submit presentation proposals is Dec. 23.

The Feminist Porn Conference brings together academics, students, cultural critics, sex workers, activists, fans, performers, directors, and producers to explore the intersections between feminism and pornography as well as feminist porn as a genre, industry and movement. The conference includes sessions devoted to both academic and non-academic presentations, film screenings, a keynote talk and networking time.

This year, the conference will include a business track featuring workshops on production and filmmaking, legal issues, marketing and branding, social media, affiliate programs and web-based technologies.

“I’m thrilled to return to the University of Toronto for the conference. Last year’s event exceeded all my expectations, and I look forward to expanding to two days of programming this year,” says Tristan Taormino, founder and producer of the Feminist Porn Conference. “Plus, with generous support from The Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies, we were able to move to a fully accessible building on campus.”
