Meet the Sickies!

Winning filmmakers will receive our beautiful “Sickie” statuettes, which were designed by Brad Bailey and are sculpted and painted by Paul and Debra Berg. Sickies will be awarded in categories celebrating performance, music, animation, and other filmmaking aspects. There will also be Sickies decided by audience votes, and two special Sickies for the films that best embody the spirit of the festival: The Golden Tentacle and The Cyber Sickie (for the BizarroLand-est film in the live and online programs respectively).
