The 17th Annual Sidewalk Film Festival
August 28-30

Sidewalk Film Festival is produced by the Alabama Moving Image Association, a federally recognized 501c3 non-profit organization with a mission to inspire, encourage and support filmgoers, the city of Birmingham and the filmmaking community. In addition to hosting the annual film festival, we host monthly networking and educational events, a monthly documentary series, short film and screenwriting competitions, manage a youth board and a variety of other year-round programs. 

Tickets sales to our events cover approximately 1/3 of our annual operating cash budget, so we depend on corporate sponsors, grant-making organizations and individuals like you to survive. if you’d like to know more about supporting Sidewalk, please contact us at sidewalk@sidewalkfest.com.

Whether you’re a writer, producer, or director, it’s critical to make sure that the story you’re setting out to make is the absolute best it can be. Is your project generating buzz and attracting money and talent? Do people get excited when you share your idea (or better yet, when they actually read your script)? In this seminar, Steve will share how to address 5 of the biggest screenplay problems that keep financiers, producers and industry insiders from investing in your project — and, even more importantly, that keep audiences from connecting with your story. A USC School of Cinema-Television graduate, Steve is a screenwriter and veteran story consultant who collaborates with other writers and producers working across the television and feature landscape, including CBS, SyFy, Showtime, Lionsgate, Fox Searchlight, Warner Brothers, and others.
