Mexico Welcomes the International Film Festival of Female Directors of Erotic Cinema with Work by Candida Royalle & Others

Candida Royalle, famed producer and director of couples-oriented pornography and founder of Femme Productions (a film company focused on the goal of making erotica based on female desire), will be heading down to Mexico City this month to take part in the first International Film Festival of Female Directors of Erotic Cinema to be held in Latin America.

Incidentally, Ms. Royalle produced and directed Under the Covers,

one of my first and only forays into pornography (as yet) and I can say from experience that this true renaissance woman of the erotic will be sure to add come mindful hedonism to the mix with her film submission, “Eyes of Desire”.

“Cinema and Sex, the Feminine Glance” is taking place August 20th through 26th, at the Cultural Center Tlatelolco of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and the Lido Cinema, operated by National Film Archives and the Ministry of Culture.

Candida will discuss her work and introduce her feature, “Eyes of Desire”, at screenings through out the week. Other women-directors to be featured are Tristan Taormino, Jennifer Lyon Bell and Liandra Dahl.
According to the organizers of the event, “the festival’s objective is to serve as a platform for the exhibition of the most representative films, while establishing a place for dialogue, debate, and reflection from different female visions of pornography, sex, and pleasure.In addition, three interdisciplinary panels will discuss “Pornography and Freedom of Speech,” “Appropriation of the means of representation” and “Sex, fictitious or sexual education”.
I must say I am quite happy to see that an all female representation of erotica/pornography in latin america, a region historically dominated by male gender-sex stereotypes (machismo) and look forward to reading more about what comes out of the conference.
It’s always satisfying to watch the work of someone who has been an inspiration as they continue to branch-out and expand their aspirations and reach new goals…their successes sparking the same determination and dedication in you…Thank you Candida, and congratulations on yet another success…for women and SEX!

      I think my erotic film days are over…it was an amazing experience, but more about THE EXPERIENCE than the production, I could care less what happened to the films after they were done, never watched them…sometimes the process outweighs the product ya know?

        Conchita, your facial expressions were really great. Was that your real life BF? I’ve never been in a (distributed) film, so I wouldn’t know, lol. I’ll take your word(s) for it tho.

        I wouldn’t have done it with someone i wasn’t in love with…it was important that we do it together…you know that was made during the first 5 years of my “Sexual awakening” not to be cheesy but it’s true…and there’s nothing to seal a relationship quite like making porn together! LOL!

    “awakening” lol. Were u really conservative before that or something? U look like you are laughing about something during that scene!

  2. Brian says:

    Hey, didn’t anyone ever get insecure & think u were laughing at them, jaja? I had someone do that to me almost 10 years ago and when I told her about she had no idea, lol.
