by: Company Press Release
(HOLLYWOOD, CA) -- Xfanz, the online adult consumer portal, has announced the dates for its 2007 Xfanz Film Fest, a two-day consumer event that will showcase exemplary erotic video. The festival will take place Sept. 15-16, 2007, at the popular Knitting Factory in Hollywood, Calif.
The venue features three screening rooms as well as several lounges in which to dine and hang out. Screenings will run daily from 1–6 p.m. The opening night also will feature an Xfanz "Studio 69" party.
Xfanz will solicit creative submissions not only from the adult industry, but also from enterprising film students across the country. The film festival will challenge professional and amateur filmmakers to expand the limits of erotic moviemaking while also educating and entertaining festival attendees.
The first day of the festival will feature an "Old School" theme celebrating 35 years of porn on the big screen, with emphasis on the classics such as "Deep Throat" and "Debbie does Dallas." Stars and filmmakers of yesteryear will be invited to share their experiences with the audiences.
The second day will be "Cutting Edge," during which studios, independent filmmakers and amateur directors submit and screen short films that represent their visions of what is the cutting edge of erotic entertainment.
"The Xfanz Film Fest celebrates the adult industry's colorful history and aims to encourage both amateur and professional adult filmmakers to submit shorts that push new boundaries," Xfanz Managing Director Alan Hawkins said.
Xfanz event planner Joetta said she plans to transform the gritty Knitting Factory into a scene reminiscent of the Studio 54 days.
"The Xfanz ‘Studio 69’ Party will pay homage to the glamour and overindulgence of porn’s big-screen beginnings," Joetta said. "Stars and fans will come together to get their disco groove on or chill in the rock ‘n’ roll lounge. We'll have bands, DJs and gorgeous dancers to entertain all night long."
"There is a whole new generation of creative directors working in erotica," Xbiz Publisher Tom Hymes said. "Xfanz is providing a hip showcase for their work, and also for the work of up-and-coming filmmakers. Add in a great venue, a cool theme and another awesome Xfanz party, and voila, you have two days filled with erotically-charged creativity." .
