Courtney Trouble heads to Australia for Two Week Tour; Honored Guest at Perv Film Festival
Two screenings, two presentations, and a handful of performances scheduled.
Courtney Trouble heads down under this month for multiple screenings, presentations, and special appearances in both Sydney and Melbourne.
As an honored guest of the Perv Film Festival (Sydney, Oct 31st – Nov 3rd) Trouble will be presenting a special “Introduction to Queer Porn” screening and Q&A, as well as acting as special guest judge for the festival’s short film competition. Trouble will also be a guest at the festival’s special panel of Australian feminist porn makers, including Liandra Dahl, Anna Brownfield, Gala Vanting, and Ms. Naughty.
“I’m profoundly impressed by the pornography that comes out of Australia,” says Courtney. “The women and men making erotic works down under are incredibly focused on artistry, passion, and impeccable on-set ethics and shooting standards. I am sure I will learn from them as much as they’ll learn from me, if not more.”
In Melbourne, Trouble will be presenting a unique collection of her all-time favorite porn scenes from the TROUBLEfilms DVD line (troublefilms.com), and collaborating on a very special workshop that will discuss “how to watch porn,” in regards to supporting artists, women in the industry, and ethical businesses.
“A lot of people harbor guilt or shame around watching porn, or think that they ‘should be’ watching a certain kind of porn, but they don’t know what or where that is. I’m excited to host a panel with Australia’s finest porn makers and feminist thinkers to have a heart-felt discussion about sex-positive and porn watching, and bring to the table a few of my favorite sex-positive porn suggestions.”
We can expect to see collaborations with Australia’s best porn companies, Feck (I Shot Myself, Beautiful Agony, I Feel Myself) as well as Liandra Dahl, Anna Brownfield, and a special performance with Penthouse Pet Zahra Stardust. “I’m getting more work in Australia as a performer than I have from American companies all year, so that’s a major highlight of my upcoming trip”
