TAMPA, Fla. — Girlfriends Films’ founder Dan O’Connell will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2015 NightMoves Awards, this Sunday, where Girlfriends Films’ contract star Prinzzess Felicity Jade will be on hand to accept it.

“I can’t begin to express how flattered and pleased I am to be receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from NightMoves,” said O’Connell. “I’m a real believer in this industry and always try to honor it in a positive fashion, something that is essential if the sex business is to ever get wide, unprejudiced acceptance.”

“Thank you so much to Paul and Tracy Allen and Art Koch for all the support NightMoves has given Girlfriends Films over the years,” O’Connell adds. “I’ll keep those movies coming and keep up the fight!”

O’Connell received XBIZ’s “Man of the Year” award in 2012.

In addition to the Lifetime Achievement Award for Dan O’Connell, Girlfriends Films received seven nominations in five categories at the NightMoves Awards, including three nominations for “Best All-Girl Release.”

The popular lesbian studio has a rich history of accolades at the annual event, such as the 2012 “Best Production Company (Editor’s Choice)” award and 2013 “Best On-Going Series (Editor’s Choice)” for “Women Seeking Women.”

“We’re very honored and thankful to the staff of the 2015 NightMoves Awards,” said Girlfriends Films’ President Moose. “These nominations are a credit to our amazing creative team and to the talented performers, as well as the fans who have been supporting Girlfriends Films for so many years.”

“Additionally, they couldn’t have chosen a better person for the Lifetime Achievement Award, which looks beyond all the great movies Dan has made and speaks to Dan’s whole body of work in our industry,” Moose added.

The 23rd Annual NightMoves Awards will be held on Sunday, Oct. 11 at the Tampa Gold Club. The event honors the adult industry’s top films, stars, and filmmakers as voted by fans across the country, and is part of the four-day NightMoves Awards weekend that includes Fanfest, a VIP party and Star Caravan, presented in various gentlemen’s clubs across Tampa.

Girlfriends Films is nominated for “Best All-Girl Release” for the films “Lesbian Seductions Older/Younger 50,” “Mother-Daughter Exchange 36,” and “Women Seeking Women 113,” which is the studio’s longest-running series and one of its most acclaimed.

The company is also nominated for “Best Feature Production” for “In the Flesh,” as well as a nomination for “Best Production Company,” which it earned in 2012. Girlfriends Films’ contract performer Prinzzess Felicity Jade is nominated for “Best Adult Star Feature Dancer,” while the company’s exclusive director B. Skow is nominated for “Best Director (Feature).”
