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.
