Great news! The “Smut Capital of America” documentary that Jack, Ben Leon and I put together about the birth of the porn industry in the late 60s, is going to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival next month. We’d love to see you guys there!

For screening times and ticket info (as well as extended clips and assorted sexual detritus, check out our Facebook page. We’re using that as the film’s home base for now.

The film premieres on April 24 as part of Tribeca’s “Off the Grid” shorts program. To whet your appetite, a clip from an interview with we did with John Waters, about sex culture in San Francisco in the 70s.

Like us, damn it:

By which we mean, thanks — we couldn’t have done it without you.

    It might have been nice considering where your inocme comes if you had premiered at an LGBT film festival

    Agreed, Norm, but so far we’re still waiting to hear back from places like Outfest and Frameline. Hopefully we’ll be able to do a West Coast premiere there. The reason that we chose Tribeca was, frankly, because Tribeca asked.

    Unfortunately, most of the gay festivals don’t screen until June or July so we were faced with a tough choice. I hope you won’t hold it against us.
