“Honestly, it's unsurprising Girlfriends Films took home three of our top awards this year," TLARaw.com General Manager Brian Sokel said. "Our customers are ravenous for their films, and each new release showcases their distinct ability to lock in on a specific niche and explore it perfectly for fans. Girlfriends consistently brings beautiful women and true sexuality to the forefront, and we look forward to many more years of working with them.”
“These awards mean a lot to us because they come from the community watching our films,” Girlfriends Films Vice President Moose said. “On behalf of everyone at Girlfriends Films, I would like to thank TLA, its staff, and customers, for honoring Girlfriends Films with not just one, but three top accolades.”
Dan O’Connell, Girlfriends Films owner and the writer/director/producer of Poor Little Shyla and Prague adds, “I would like to thank both TLA and the fans who cast thousands of votes for our studio and movies. Without their support, I’d be back working a ho-hum job instead of living out a dream. I’d also like to extend my great appreciation for Shyla Jennings and all the other extraordinary women appearing in Poor Little Shyla and Prague. You are all talented and wonderful.”
Moose continues, “Poor Little Shyla was a labor of love; we pushed against stereotypes and broke away from tried and true story lines. Its resulting success is a testament to originality and quality. Prague is a brand new line for us and the critical acclaim is a reflection of a remarkable country and its amazing women. We consider ourselves fortunate to be able to make movies with such beautiful scenery. Topping these prestigious acknowledgments with Studio of the Year marks one of Girlfriends Films’ proudest moments. We are humbled, and we thank you, TLA. We look forward to making movies you will enjoy for years to come.”
