LOS ANGELES — Anti-piracy service TakeDown Piracy has announced its gold-level sponsorship of the 10th anniversary edition of the CineKink Film Festival.
Listed by Google as one of the top five reporters of digital violations in the world, and with more than 15 million infringements removed, and profiled on several media sites, TDP offers copyright holders a way to fight back against content pirates.
“At TakeDown Piracy, we strive to help independent filmmakers; it is with great pride that we support the CineKink festival,” said Nate Glass, founder and COO of TakeDown Piracy. “Without a show like CineKink and a powerful anti-piracy solution like TakeDown Piracy, these visionary filmmakers could not fully enjoy the fruits of their labor.”
Scheduled for Feb. 26-March 3, the annual CineKink.com NYC will feature a program of films and videos that celebrate and explore a wide diversity of sexuality. In addition to screenings, plans for the festival also include a short film competition, audience choice awards, a feminist porn presentation and panel curated by Tristan Taormino, a special adult entertainment showcase, and a gala kick-off event, along with retrospective screenings commemorating a decade's worth of kinky programming.
A national tour will follow, showcasing audience favorites from the festival selections from various cities.
"Thanks to our sponsors, we’re able to bring these wonderful, sexy works out into the world and introduce them to new audiences,” said Lisa Vandever, co-founder and director of CineKink. “It’s an honor to have TakeDown Piracy, a company that’s already doing so much to benefit filmmakers, partner in this endeavor.”
Sponsorship opportunities range from a full festival presenting sponsorship to its Gotham sponsorship, allowing potential sponsors to support the festival at a variety of levels. Sponsors can expect to enjoy different levels of visibility as well as such perks as all-access VIP passes to screenings and parties.
