BARCELONA, Spain — Award-winning adult entertainment director and Mercenary Pictures owner Lexington Steele will be attending the 12th Annual International Erotic Film Festival of Barcelona, which begins today.

“I’m going there mostly for business,” Steele said. “But I’m also looking forward to spending some time in Spain and at the convention, which I’ve heard a lot of wild stuff about.”

The five-day festival will feature appearances by stars like Ron Jeremy, Silvia Saint, Nacho Vidal and Rocco Siffredi, as well as fashion shows, award ceremonies and a gala dinner on Oct. 3.

“Mercenary won’t have a booth,” Steele said, “but I plan on attending the convention and getting the word out about Mercenary and out product.”

Steele also noted that he has a large fan following in Europe which that he’s looking forwarded to meeting.

During the final gala dinner, the 2004 Ninfa award-winners will be announced. The awards, whose name literally means “nymph” in Spanish, have become one of the most prestigious international awards presented in recent years.

In 2003, Ninfa winners included Private Media’s “The Scottish Loveknot” for Best DVD and Max Hardcore for Best Director.
