Nice of CIMMcity to do up the walls to match our blog headers, eh?!
We made it to CIMMcity twice so far--to pick up press credentials and network and to attend the Artists' Reception for Women in Film. It was catered by one of our neighborhood favorites, Friendship Chinese!
Check out our photo recap below including the coolest film fest awards "trophies" ever.
Full slide show is here. Favorites are embedded below.

Day 1-Instagram Fun
Thanks to fest promoters for going above and beyond. Here's my 10 year old daughter, Sagezilla, modeling her rockin' CIMMfest2014 tee shirt! They also gave us buttons (from Busy Beaver Button Co--another of our neighborhood favs) and sweet swag bags with goodies & coupons from loads of luscious locals (Threadless, Friendship Chinese, IV Lab, Arabesque Chicago, Restaurant Sarajevo) and snacks from Milk & Honey (Rick Bayless's Mexican Mix!), Popchips & Kind bars.
I even got to sample Crafthouse premixed cocktails, served by the Co-Owner of Subterranean before I headed over there to shoot the opening night show. I only had time to check out the grapefruit one, but it was excellent. I'm dying to try the other 2. Vita Coco was in the house with loads of flavors of coconut water including a new lemonade. CIMMcity also had soft drinks for the underagers & others not partaking in the booze bonanza.
