(VALENCIA, CA) -- Girlfriends Films was recently presented with the top studio honors at the 2013 AVN Awards – Best Overall Marketing Campaign – Company Image. The award was one of five bestowed upon the lesbian film studio, including its sixth consecutive accolade for "Women Seeking Women" as Best All-Girl Series.
"The Company Image award is the most important one to Girlfriends Films," says Girlfriends Films owner Dan O’Connell. "In everything we do, we try to present the best image to the public. It doesn’t matter whether it concerns only Girlfriends Films, our performers, or the industry as a whole."
"I firmly believe in our industry’s products," continues O’Connell. "They are there simply to give people happiness and contentment. But the other awards? We’ll take them too. Girlfriends Films tries its hardest to make good products, and I’m very happy everyone involved with our award-winners get acknowledged in this way."
In the news as much for its philanthropic endeavors as its movies, Girlfriends Films Charities (www.GirlfriendsFilmsCharities.com) donates $1,000 each month to AIP-certified charities selected by performers. Charities assisted in 2012 include the National Breast Cancer Coalition, American Red Cross, Best Friend Animal Society, and more. Girlfriends Films encourages fans to join in the giving.
Throughout 2012, Dan O’Connell was one of the adult industry’s leading advocates against Measure B, the Los Angeles County mandatory condom law. O’Connell addressed his peers on several occasions, as well as worked to educate fans, consumers, and Los Angeles voters on the repercussions of the measure.

"Thank you to the AVN voters for helping make ‘Women Seeking Women’ the juggernaut it is, as well as bringing attention to our recent endeavors, like ‘Cheer Squad Sleepovers.’"
