Good Vibrations' Independent Erotic Film Festival Presents Pink & White Delight: An Evening with Shine Louise Houston
San Francisco, CA -- (August 31th, 2011): Good Vibrations is thrilled to present an evening with Shine Louise Houston, founder of Pink & White Productions, on Wednesday, September 21st at the SF LGBT Center as part of Good Vibrations’ 6th annual Indie Erotic Film Festival. Join the filmmaker as she journeys through some of her favorite selections and speaks about creating a sustainable adult entertainment company that exposes the complexities of queer sexual desire.
Pink & White Productions, award-winning porn production company founded and directed by Shine Louise Houston, produces sexy and exciting images that reflect today’s blurred gender lines and fluid sexualities. From feature films to popular websites, her work portrays authentic sexuality that has been screened globally from film festivals to university/college classrooms and is as hot as it is a culturally significant reflection of queer sex.
Houston explains, “There is power in creating images, and for… a woman of color and a queer to take that power… I don’t find it exploitative; I think it’s necessary.” Houston’s past projects (The Crash Pad, Superfreak, The Wild Search, CHAMPION: Love Hurts) and popular Crash Pad Series DVD volumes have been recognized year after year by AVN Awards and the Feminist Porn Awards. Last year, Houston was honored 2010 Feminist Porn Awards “Visionary.”
Enjoy steamy scenes from her various erotic film projects along with questions moderated by Good Vibrations’ Staff Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen. DVDs will be available for sale at the event. Following the screening, head over to the Lexington Club for a champagne toast and continued celebration of Shine Louise Houston and Pink & White Productions!
