NEW YORK — A special selection of films that celebrate and explore a wide diversity of sexuality will screen as the CineKink film festival hits the west coast Aug. 5 and 6.

CineKink: PDX will take place on Aug. 5 at the Clinton Street Theater in Portland, Oregon. The festivities begin at 7 p.m. with a screening of the shorts program, "Best of CineKink/2015," followed at 9 p.m. by the CineKink award-winning feature, "Marriage 2.0."

Next up, CineKink:Oakland,is scheduled for Aug. 6 at The New Parkway and features a one-off screening of "Best of CineKink/2015" at 8:30 p.m.

"Best of CineKink/2015," screening in both cities, is a collection of sexy shorts deemed the best during CineKink's most recent festival run. This year's assortment, with works ranging from documentary to drama, comedy to experimental, mildly spicy to explicit, includes “Zolushka” (Wes Hurley), “The Gordon Game” (Jared Robbins), “It's My Birthday and I'll Fly If I Want To” (Morgana Muses), “Rubber Romance” (Sophie Dros), “The Table” (Izabel Grondin), “Kimi Kabuki'” (Yoko Okumura) and “Tease” (Ms. Naughty).

The organizers said the CineKink 2015 audience choice award winner, "Marriage 2.0," screening in Portland only, looks at the possibilities and pitfalls of an open relationship, following one couple on their search to balance personal freedom with emotional and sexual bliss. Merging explicit presentation with a strong story-telling approach, the film stars Ryan Driller and India Summer, along with Andre Shakti, Mickey Mod, Sadie Lune, Dylan Ryan, Beretta James, Daisy Ducati, Christian Wilde, Juniper Gold, and porn legend Nina Hartley.

The film also features many luminaries of the sex-positive community, including Carol Queen, Marcia Baczynski, Reid Mihalko, Emily Morse, and noted TED speaker and author of the ‘New York Times’ best-seller "Sex At Dawn," Christopher Ryan.

"I’m really excited to be bringing another fantastic assortment of smart, sexy cinema to some of my favorite venues," said Lisa Vandever, CineKink co-founder and director, who will be traveling with the program. "It's wonderful to work with independent theaters that cultivate a great community around their love for film, and their audiences are so welcoming and enthusiastic."

The CineKink festival tour is sponsored by Bowery Bliss, KinkyMedical.net, the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, Leather Archives and Museum and njoy. Local sponsors for CineKink:Oakland include Feelmore 510.

CineKink:PDX is presented in conjunction with Oregon Leather Pride, which runs July 31-Aug. 9.

Other CineKink tour dates ahead include Chicago (Oct. 3), with additional cities to be announced shortly.
