LOS ANGELES — “Homegrown Video: Vol. 850” was named Amateur Release of the Year at the 2015 XBIZ Awards. Volume 850 of the popular, long-running series from Homegrown Video was honored the event held at the JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. Live on Jan. 15.

“Homegrown Video: Vol. 850” features 100 percent amateur sex footage from real life couples and partners, in what Newsweek has called the “longest-running amateur video series in the history of porn.”

“We’re very pleased with this award for ‘Homegrown Video: Vol. 850,’” said Homegrown Video owner Farrell Timlake. “After producing this amazing series for so long, we’re thrilled to see that it still has the quality and spontaneity that first made it a hit all those years ago.”

Adult and mainstream media outlets have praised homegrown Video’s flagship series over the years. In addition to Newsweek’s endorsement, U.S. News & World Report heralded it as “a clearinghouse for the democracy of porn, supplying hardcore videos by the people, for the people.” Hustler said, “Unique, innovative, hip, and sexually powerful – that’s Homegrown Video! Homegrown is the best amateur XXX in the market today.”

The award marks Homegrown Video’s third consecutive win in the Amateur Release of the Year category, after trophies in 2013 and 2014.

While other companies try to mimic the success of the studio’s videos, Homegrown Video has been able to achieve the truly realistic look with actual amateur couples and individuals willing to have sex on camera.

CEO Spike Goldberg remarked, “It’s no secret one of the keys to our success is our fans, who our loyal to our brand, purchase the movies composed of scenes from others in the Homegrown community, and make their own videos to submit to us. We are forever thankful to them.”

All Homegrown Video releases are available through Girlfriends Films Distribution. Retailers and distributors interested in ordering Homegrown Video titles may contact David Diamond of Girlfriends Films at ddiamond@girlfriendsfilms.com
