Good Vibrations Presents Sexy Cinema from Around the World plus Special Guest Joanna Angel

Good Vibrations' QUICKIES!

Any way you like it -- funny, serious, explicit, romantic, straight, queer, kinky, animated, or something else entirely -- you’ll be glowing after this quick and frisky romp.

Independent filmmakers from around the world will show their stuff in 7 minutes or less at Good Vibrations’ 7th annual QUICKIES Short Erotic Film Competition on Friday, October 26th at the Castro Theatre. Indie porn queen, director and star Joanna Angel will be in attendance, sharing her film “Fuckenstein,” an XXX-rated homage to everyone’s favorite classic horror flick featuring a monster with monstrous proportions. Guests are invited to meet her and other filmmakers at the pre-party in the Castro mezzanine at this fun and irreverent celebration of sexy cinema.

Follow two horny cyclists on a high-speed chase through the streets of Berlin in “Das Randy Radfahrers, ” navigate the politics of a birthday three-way in “Reverse Cowgirl,” delight in the simple romance between a man and his blow-up doll in “Plastic Love,” and see our hero take it shaken and stirred in “James Bondage in Double O Sexy.” With a dozen entries in this year's competition, there's something for everyone. Awarded SF Weekly’s "Best Place to See Your (Talented and Attractive) Neighbors Naked," this year’s finalists include neighbors from Australia, Germany, Canada, Israel, and the United States.

Saucy Indie film queen and drag celebrity extraordinaire, Peaches Christ and Good Vibrations’ own Staff Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen start the night with a Halloween pre-party in the mezzanine where filmgoers warm up for a night of sexy cinema with spooky tunes by the Cryptic Quartet, gory burlesque by the Can-Cannibals, cold cocktails, tasty bites, and sexy give-aways. Then it’s onto the erotic short film competition where drag divas Lady Bear and Hugz Bunny join Dr. Queen and Peaches Christ to present the films with a balance of irreverent humor and sexological insight. The audience decides who gave it best, and the film with the most applause wins $1,500.

Good Vibrations’ film festival producer Camilla Lombard explains: “Any way you like it -- funny, serious, explicit, romantic, straight, queer, kinky, animated, or something else entirely -- you’ll be glowing after this quick and frisky romp. Creativity, originality, and humor come together for an outrageous night that everyone can enjoy.”
