Girlfriends Films Picks Up Bonnie Rotten Studio for Distro

VALENCIA, Calif.—Girlfriends Films has announced a distribution deal with Bonnie Rotten for her first foray into production and directing under the label Mental Beauty, Inc. The deal includes national and international DVD, VOD and broadcast cable distribution. The award-winning tattooed vixen will release six titles per year from the studio, featuring boy/girl, girl/girl and kink content with tattooed and un-inked performers.

The 20-year-old performer, who is a nominee for AVN's 2014 Female Performer of the Year, is one of the youngest in the adult industry to garner such a deal.

“I’m honored to have Girlfriends Films provide me with a platform to direct and produce DVDs,” Rotten said. “My brand of filming is something different for the Girlfriends Films brand, and I’m looking forward to creating some really great projects for them. I’ve already shot my first scene for the debut release, and it’s very, very cool. My fans are going to love it!”

Rotten’s first title under the deal, a young girl violation release, is slated to release in April.

“My style is ‘creepy cinematic,’” Bonnie said. “It’s a little kink, a little Andrew Blake. The scenes will take things out of the bedroom and are super edgy, but with a real cinematic feel to them. I’m very happy with how things are going on set, and how the scenes are shaping up on the screen. I am definitely looking forward to unleashing it in April!”

Girlfriends Films president Moose said, “At an impressively young age, Bonnie has made a mark for herself as an in-demand performer. Already her fans love what she’s done for Girlfriends Films, and it’s a true pleasure to work alongside her to bring strong, boundary-pushing releases for those who like their porn on the kinkier side. We’re happy to welcome her to the Girlfriends Films family, and we’re sure her fans will find her projects exactly like her—sexy, edgy, explosive and very addictive.”

Rotten, a relative newcomer to the adult industry, has made a mark as indelible as her many tattoos since her entry into the business in 2012. The sought-after performer has garnered fan and critical praise for her riveting performances, which incorporate fetish and kink aspects. Her most recent release with Girlfriends Films is the Skow for Girlfriends Films project Sexually Explicit. To view the trailer for Sexually Explicit, click here.

Currently nominated for 24 awards for the January awards show season, the lithe, inked vixen won three 2013 NightMoves Awards trophies (Best All-Sex Release, Best Ink, Best Social Media Star) and three Inked Awards honors (Female Performer of the Year, DVD of the Year, Scene of the Year). She also won Hottest New Girl at the 2013 Sex Awards. She most recently ranked on pop culture media site Fleshbot’s Top Ten Crush Objects of 2013 list.
