Continuing its longstanding tradition of featuring compelling entertainment, the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo is pleased to offer attendees the first exclusive look at a documentary that explores the world of live-cam models. Titled Cam Girlz, the feature-length documentary is set to premiere for the first time ever on Jan. 22 at 8:30 p.m. at Vinyl, inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
The screening is sponsored by Chaturbate and all industry members, press and Extreme VIP badge holders will be allowed access.
Directed by Sean Dunne, Cam Girlz is a documentary film that enters the world of internet sex workers who find economic freedom, empowerment, intimacy and creative self-expression from the comfort of their own homes. Dunne is an accomplished documentarian. His first feature, Oxyana, which explored the devastating effects of Oxycontin on a small town, premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, where the filmmaker won the Best New Documentary Director award.
“I had been yearning to make a film about women that challenge the establishment,” Dunne told Medium.com. During the making of Oxyana I remember being curious about the lives of the women who you see in those pop ups while you’re watching porn. Real women broadcasting from their bedrooms. Who were they? What were they like? How did they end up doing this? I did some research and stumbled into this fascinating online community of women who did this sort of internet sex work from the comfort and safety of their homes. I saw them refer to themselves as cam girls and that sounded like the title of a film I would want to see so I decided to make it.”
Chaturbate, sponsors of the premiere, are excited to be involved with the project. A few girls that cam on the site are featured in the movie.
We are so excited about this movie, Shirley from Chaturbate said. Chaturbate is familiar with Sean Dunne’s work, American Juggalo,which had gone viral. When we saw he was working on a documentary based on cam girls we jumped at the chance to get involved. They had casting calls in New York, Seattle, and LA – many of our cam girls showed up and were casted. We also booked a location and flew in girls to Hollywood, California so they could be filmed. It was great experience!
Many popular cam models are featured in the documentary including Abby Rhode, Conner Jay, Ginger Meadows, Awesome Kate and Sophia Locke.
Chaturbates Shirley believes Cam Girlz adds a healthy dash of humanity to the stars of the live cam industry.
“Currently there are commercials for live cam sites on cable TV, and I think there’s a big misunderstanding between porn stars and cam girls – theyre very different,” Shirley said. This movie will set the record straight. Cam girls are so much more than a sex object, it’s a real hustle. We’re happy to see a movie add depth, understanding, and positive reflection to the live cam industry as a whole. I definitely think this film is going to further this niche in mainstream.”
