Rounding out multiple days of screenings and parties in its Ninth Annual appearance, organizers for Cine Kink NYC announced the recipients of awards in a range of categories during the film festival's closing celebrations held on Sunday, February 12.

Audience Choice Awards were given to "Stage Brother" by Richard Buonagurio for Best Documentary Feature, with "Cabaret Desire" (Erika Lust) and "Sweet Prudence & The Erotic Adventure of Bigfoot" by William Burke, tying for Best Narrative Feature. The Cine Kink Choice awards were determined by audience ballot just following each eligible film's screening during the festival.

In the shorts competition, juried festival awards went to "A Day in the Country" by Pella Kagerman and Hugo Lilja, for Best Dramatic Short, "Craigslist Dating" by Ryan Hunter and "Tooshie Smooshie" by Jessica King tied for Best Camedy Short, "Smut Capital of America" by Michael Stabile for Best Documentary Short, "What Makes Us Queer?" by Courtney Trouble and Tina Horn for Best Experimental Short and "Transexual Dominatrix" for Best Music Video.

Determining the shorts awards, CineKink jurors this year included sex-blogger MissyStark, Devon Tincknell, an Austin-based event producer and editor of the sex-culture blog "F*Bomb," and Bill Woods, a film festival programmer and curator of the New Filmmakers series at Anthology Film Archives.

The third annual CineKink "Bring It!" award, determined by audience ballot during a presentation of excerpts showcasing current adult cinema, went to "Live Sex Show" (Courtney Trouble).

The CineKink Tribute, recognizing extraordinary depictions of kink and sex-positivity in mainstream film and television, was presented to "3" by Tom Tykwer and Strand Releasing for its "affirming stance that what works in love and sex need not fall within society's standard definitions."

Making its ninth annual run February 7-12, Cine Kink NYC featured a specially selected program of films and videos that celebrate and explore a wide diversity of sexuality. Billing itself as "the kinky film festival," the event is dedicated to the recognition and encouragement of sex-positive and kink-friendly depictions in film and television. With offerings drawn from both Hollywood and beyond, works presented at Cine Kink NYC ranged from documentary to drama, comedy to experimental, mildly spicy to quite explicit - and everything in between.

Selections from CineKink NYC will be featured in a traveling version of the festival, slated to appear in various cities throughout the coming year.
