    I was so bummed I couldn't attend -- this one sounded like so much fun! The organizers are super nice and very well organized and made me feel like a part of the family. And speaking of family, I have some who live in Cary and used my passes, coming away most impressed. A great line up of films, too. If I'm lucky enough to screen here again I will not miss it. Highly recommend!

    Sick Chick Flicks is a kickass genre festival strictly for female filmmakers and the result is a fun camaraderie of like-minded souls with equally entertaining films. Christine made everyone feel special and welcome and provided a sweet VIP room with snacks and beverages where everyone could hang. We're so glad we made the trek from NYC!

    Very nice and warm festival, great communication! Unfortunately I wasn't able to attent but they created a special Facebook page for selected filmakers, they took pictures and live videos so I was able to follow all the event and award ceremony from home in France, as if I were there!
    The festival's team is great, they gave me a review of public impressions of my movie by email and will send my trophies to France! It's so great to have a festival which celebrates genre films and also directed by women! Hope it will make things change for women in cinéma! Anyway, thank you so much SCFF Festival!
