A closer look at Sidewalk’s 2006 competitive slate

Last week, the Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival announced its competitive feature film lineup for its 8th annual festival here in the Magic City. The festival will take place in Birmingham’s downtown area September 22 – 24, 2006.

We figured it didn’t make a lot of sense to reinvent the postings that had already occurred in the Birmingham News and, but it would make perfect sense to provide some additional information to help prepare you for the film festival.

Where available, we’ve made the film’s title link to its website. There are also links to the film’s Internet Movie Database (IMDB) listing. Links have been provided to trailers when possible. If necessary, other online information is listed if a website is not available.
