Veteran adult film director/producer Ivan is being honored for industry excellence over the past two decades with his official induction into the 2023 AVN Hall of Fame on Saturday, January 7 during the AVN Awards Show in Las Vegas.
The filmmaker and CEO/Creative Director of upstart creative studio AltErotic.com, who got his start in the adult biz in 2002 working for production houses such as Extreme Associates, Evolution Erotica, Anabolic, Desire Films, Allure, Pornstar Empire and Tom Byron Pictures, among others, is thrilled to be recognized by AVN for his achievements.
“Thank you so much to AVN for this huge honor as a 2023 Hall of Fame inductee representing the Video Branch,” said Ivan, who was also inducted into the Urban X Awards Hall of Fame earlier this year.
“I’ve been working towards this professional recognition for years as a director alongside some of the most talented and amazing people on Earth, and I am super happy to end the year like this. I appreciate this acknowledgment so much, as well as every single person who helped get me to where I am today.”
