    Even though were unable to attend, I was so impressed with this festival. All along the way leading up to the event, Flicks by Chicks was incredibly communicative and helpful. Their staff was hard working and reached out often to make sure my team knew all of the important details leading up the festival. I felt included in the process and aware of all the events the festival offered (which looked awesome!). I have even interfaced with attendees, even though I wasn't at the event. It's really a wonderful festival through and through. I really hope to be a part of Flicks by Chicks again in the future!
