Sidewalk Scramble

What is the Sidewalk Scramble?

The Sidewalk Scramble is Sidewalk’s timed filmmaking competition. Fueled by caffeine and competition, teams are challenged to create a short film — from concept to completion – typically within a 48-hour time frame – and based on themes and inspiration items provided by the creative folks at Sidewalk.

Participants range from amateurs to professionals, so the results are inspiring and spectacular!
