“It's an honor to be nominated, and a real thrill for it to happen in a European competition,” Sparks said. “It shows that merging niche markets like petites, hairy, and exotic into a feel-good story with hot sex scenes is something that can be appreciated worldwide.”

The Venus Award ceremony takes place before a select group of about 300 invited guests in the heart of Berlin.

Awards are given in the "Big Five” categories that include Best Female Actor, Best Newcomer Actress, Best Male Actor, Best Director, Best Studio and as many as 15 other categories.

“Revenge of the Petites” captures the essence of '80s coming-of-age comedies.

In “Revenge of the Petites,” petite and nerdy Marie and her best friend Skin embark on their freshman year of college. They soon realize college life is not as easy as it seems.

“Revenge of the Petites” features a diverse cast of 23 adult stars and 30 extras. The movie stars Marie McCray, Skin Diamond, and Vanessa Cage, and also features Leilani Leeanne, Celeste Star, Dani Daniels, Cassandra Nix, Ashley Jane, Zoey Kush, Riley Reid, Kris Slater, Sativa Verte, Heidi Hanson, Katie St. Ives, Seth Dickens, Victoria Rae Black, Tia Cyrus, Nina Devon, Hayden Hawkens, Talon, Sarah Shevon, Trinity St. Clair, and James Deen.

Named an XBIZ Editor’s Choice, Managing Editor Dan Miller hails the movie as “a funny and thoughtful homage to American coming-of-age comedies such as ‘Revenge of the Nerds,’ ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High,’ ‘American Pie,’ and even ‘The Graduate’... more than just a sex movie.

"The film looks great and captures a nice nostalgic vibe that should have viewers digging through their old VHS tapes for a John Hughes fix.”

Earlier in the year, “Revenge of the Petites” was honored as Feature Movie of the Year at the 2012 Urban X Awards.

Additionally, “Revenge of the Petites” is also nominated for Best Feature Production at the 2012 NightMoves Awards.

The annual Venus International Fair is scheduled for Oct. 18 -21 at the Messe Berlin expo center, at Messedamm 22 in Berlin.
