We’re excited to be partnering with some of our accepted filmmakers to host some live streamed online Q & As on Sidewalk’s Facebook page, in addition to hosting an online table read for our winning Sidewrite scripts and an online workshop with Michael O’Neill!

Below you’ll find the complete schedule for all our online events (they are all free and open to the public with the exception of the Michael O’Neill workshop – Michael is generously donating all the proceeds from that workshop to Sidewalk!)

We may be adding a few more sessions between now and the end of the fest so stay tuned!
