Sick Chick FLICKS Film Festival

The first festivals devoted to showing and celebrating films made by women arose in the late seventies in response to the worldwide film industry's domination by men. There are more than a hundred such festivals at the moment, from Texas to Taipei, and the trend seems to be toward genre specificity. In the spirit of 2015's Ax Wound Film Festival in Brattleboro, Vermont, the Sick Chick Flicks Film Festival focuses on women's work in the world of independent horror and suspense, with some fantasy and sci-fi thrown in. Films by an international and local roster of directors, none longer than twenty minutes, will get the jury treatment. The day's segments are divided among "creepy and disturbing," "dark and twisted," "scary and Southern," and more as twenty-seven films vie for top honors. By the time the winner of the inaugural Best Sick Chick Flick award is announced, the suspense should be unbearable. —David Klein
