In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Grab your popcorn! Sidewalk announces full film lineup

The 19th Annual Sidewalk Film Festival takes place August 25th – 27th. Those 3 days will be packed with a whopping 266 films! Check out a full list of what’s coming this year below:

Opening Night Film, STEP

STEP documents the senior year of a girls’ high-school step dance team against the background of inner-city Baltimore. The film earned high acclaim at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and was acquired by Fox Searchlight Pictures.

Closing Night Film, My Friend Dahmer

Before Jeffrey Dahmer became one of the most notorious serial killers of all time, he was a teenage loner. My Friend Dahmer chronicles the origins of the man, the monster – and the high school senior.
