(Massachussetts) August 10, 2017 – Bella Vendetta’s directorial debut, The Training of Poe, starring multiple AVN-nominated Chelsea Poe, will have its official world premiere at the SECS Fest this September 8-10 in Seattle, WA.
While previously available to promote online for a limited time for by webmasters in download & dvd format, or in snippets from Vendetta’s own clipstore, the movie has only screened select scenes for specialty conference and art show groups, as well as when it was nominated and awarded Honorable Mention at the Toronto International Porn Fest.
“It’s a feature-length film,” says Vendetta of her 122 minute opus. “Only select scenes and trailers have been shown at film festivals. This will be the first time the film has been shown to a wide audience in it’s entirety.”
The Training of Poe has generally been lauded by critics who’ve viewed it in its entirety as “a beautiful film about power, trust, joy… and whips, shackles, clothespins, and dog bowls.”
The SECS Fest will be held by the Seattle Erotic Cinema Society, which in 2013 grew out of the Seattle Erotic Art Festival, at The Grand Illusion Cinema in Seattle.
Vendetta, who has since produced her second film, The Adventures of Bella and Morgan, has not said whether she will be in attendance. The Training of Poe is playing on the final of the three days, Sunday, Sept. 10, at 11 AM.
