Rowntree’s panel ‘Using Explicit Sex as a Storytelling Element’ will be held on March 11

AUSTIN, TX (March 11, 2018) -'s well-known and esteemed director Angie Rowntree will be in Austin, Texas this weekend for SXSW, where she will speak on the panel "Using Explicit Sex as a Storytelling Element."

The event will be held on Sunday, March 11, at 3:30 PM. The panel's official hashtag is #sexstoryfilm.

In addition to discussing artistic and technical choices related to using explicit sex in filmmaking, Rowntree will also discuss various social and cultural issues impacting adult content production today. These include safety standards, workplace ethics, representation, and common misperceptions of porn.

"I appreciate the opportunity to speak about the differences between mainstream and adult films - and the unique challenges that come with shooting porn," Rowntree stated.

"Really engaging why explicit sex is important to our narrative as human beings and talking about some of the misconceptions people outside the adult industry have about shooting adult content - and how work like mine is challenging some of those off-mark ideas - is important. I'm excited to take part," she added.

Later that evening, Rowntree's work will be part of a small private screening - #SexStoryFilmFest - at the Austin Dungeon. Tickets for this separate event can be purchased for $12 via EventBrite here.
