LOS ANGELES — Trouble Films has been nominated for five XBIZ Awards for the 2015 show on Jan. 15. The ceremony will take place in downtown Los Angeles.

The studio, headed by Courtney Trouble, is up for a nomination for Feminist Porn Release of the Year for "Doing It Again: Volume 1, Playful Awakenings," which was directed by Tobi Hill-Meyer. The film weaves together explicit scenes and interview footage from a diverse range trans women and their partners to paint a holistic portrait of trans women’s sexuality.

“Doing it Again‘s compelling and human stories of the actual performers you see having sex has the potential to engage audiences in new and exciting ways,” Hill-Meyer said. “We need more encouragement to experiment with different formats in this industry, and it’s amazing to see it getting attention from awards like XBIZ.”

Also up for Best Alternative Site is QueerPorn.TV, the second time the site has been nominated in the category. IndiePornRevolution.com, launched in 2002, has been nominated as Best Alternative Site as well.

"San Francisco Lesbians: SCISSR Sex App," Trouble’s collaboration with Smash Pictures for the label Pink Velvet, is up for All-Girl Release of the Year, as well as Feminist Porn Release of the Year. Pink Velvet, Smash’s new lesbian label under which Trouble directs, is up for an additional award as Best New Studio.

“Having my work with a major studio recognized in this way gives me such inspiration, and I hope to do more collaborations in the future,” Trouble said. “Queer porn and mainstream porn can and are creating beautiful, erotic work together, and I believe that collaborative efforts like the Smash Pictures/Courtney Trouble 'San Francisco Lesbians' project will continue to bring new, exciting ideas to the porn industry!”

The 13th anniversary of the adult awards show will be hosted by popular performer James Deen, and will take place January 15th. It marks the end of several days of industry discussion, panels, and parties, where the movers and shakers of pornography get to discuss their work at XBIZ 360.
