Taormino's 'Chemistry' to Screen in New York, Slovenia

NEW YORK - Tristan Taormino's AVN Award-winning gonzo series Chemistry continues to score prestige points. Two volumes in the Vivid Entertainment series have been separately selected to screen at upcoming film festivals in New York and Slovenia.

An excerpt from Chemistry 3 will be shown at the 2009 CineKink Film Festival at the Anthology Film Archives in New York City.

Scheduled for Feb. 28 at 11:10 p.m., the screening is part of a special event titled "Bring It!" which features "a dazzling array of talent from today's adult cinema, working in a wide range of genres and visual styles, step up with a hot sampling of their recent creative endeavors."

"I'm a big fan of CineKink and think it's an amazing festival," said Taormino. "I'm thrilled that Chemistry 3 has been selected to be part of this year's line up. The organizers selected one of Roxy DeVille's scenes in the film, which is among my favorites because it's real, raw, and smokin' hot!"

CineKink was founded in 2003 to recognize and encourage the positive depictions of sexuality and kink in film and television. This year's fest runs Feb. 24 - March 1.

The original Chemistry, which won the 2007 AVN Award for Best Gonzo Release, will be shown at the 10th Annual Red Dawns Feminist and Queer Festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Running March 5-8, the festival features exhibitions, performance art, film screenings, workshops, and concerts.

Chemistry was one of three adult movies chosen by Red Dawns festival organizers. A discussion of feminist, alternative, and queer porn will follow the films.

"When the festival's producers contacted me, I was overjoyed," Taormino said. "It's incredibly groundbreaking for such a festival to exist in Slovenia, and I am so honored to have my movie be a part of it."
