Some Distribpix Archive artifacts.....

Besides the wonderful film elements in our archive we have also collected some interesting tools and machines used to edit, process and work with film, throughout the golden age of adult filmmaking.

Surrounded by FILMS...literally

Over the last several years, we have tried our best to archive our entire library of 16mm and 35 mm film negatives/prints, as well as organize and digitize thousands of images from the vault.

David Friedman dies at 87..... another huge loss for film fans

As most of you already know, legendary film maker David Friedman died on Monday. I was fortunate to get to meet Dave on several occasions, mainly when he came into NYC to meet with my father, as they were very friendly and fond of each other.

John Leslie, a true legend

I have thought about John every day since his passing, even if  just for a moment, I am still blown away from this past year, losing a few of the greats...Jamie Gillis, Joe Sarno and most recently John Leslie. I did get to meet with him a few times at AVN while he was working for the Evil Empire.
