The 4th annual Sick Chick's Film Festival! Screening at the lovely Cary Theater in downtown Cary, NC. We accept short films in one of the following genres: Horror, Sci Fi or Fantasy. Our emphasis is female filmmakers so we do require that at least one of the primary creative roles is filled by a woman (writer, director, cinematographer/director of photography). We will be showcasing work by some of the best indie filmmakers from NC and around the world.
For the first time this year we will be allowing filmmakers in attendance to pitch their next film project to the audience. The audience will vote on which project gets funded. The winning project will get a cash award to be used toward their film.
