Youth Board

Sidewalk’s Youth Board are a group of high school students from across the Birmingham area who share a love for movies. The Youth Board write, produce, direct, edit, and screen their own short film, which will also appear in the Sidewalk Film Festival lineup. Youth Board members also get to help choose films submitted by other teen filmmakers for consideration at the festival.
