‘Marriage 2.0’ Wins Best Narrative Award at New York’s CineKink Film Festival

NEW YORK—Marriage 2.0, which was just released on Feb. 26 on AdamAndEveTV.com, won the Best Narrative Award on March 1 at New York’s CineKink 2015 film festival.

The film, produced by LionReach Productions and distributed by Adam & Eve, features powerful sexual performances from adult stars along with a compelling narrative.

Adult performer Andre Shakhti, who played Athena in the film, accepted the award on behalf of the film’s producers, cast, and crew.
We are very grateful for this amazing honor from CineKink,” said Marriage 2.0 screenwriter and producer Magnus Sullivan. “Our goal was to create a movie that happens to have sex but is not necessarily an adult film. We wanted to redefine how sex can be used in an artistic and meaningful way in films, and I believe we succeeded.”

Marriage 2.0 is a beautiful and artistic look at the changing nature of our relationships, and the growing phenomenon of consensual non-monogamy,” said CineKink Founder Lisa Vandever. “What especially attracted me to the film is how it deals with potential conflicts like jealousy and insecurity, not glossing them over, but showing the importance of communication and honesty in moving beyond them to reap the potential rewards at hand.”
The film, widely considered a groundbreaking effort that has redefined the potential of adult cinema, is earning strong accolades from industry critics.
Marriage 2.0 features performances from adult entertainment stars such as India Summer, Ryan Driller, Dylan Ryan, Nina Hartley and Mickey Mod, along with appearances from internationally renowned sex and relationship experts such as Emily Morse and Reid Mihalko. The film follows a couple (India Summer and Ryan Driller) on their search for personal freedom, as well as emotional and sexual bliss within the context of an honest and committed modern relationship. 
Marriage 2.0 delves into the nature of commitment and relationships by weaving hardcore sex into a compelling, touching, and controversial narrative, which ultimately drives a film that challenges the portrayal of sex in cinema.   
Cinekink, which ran from Feb. 24 to March 1, was established in 2003 as an effort to recognize and encourage positive depictions of sexuality and kink in film and television. The annual event features film dramas, comedies, documentaries as well as a variety of shorts and videos from filmmakers around the world.
