Do you know someone who believes in the power of movies with all their heart? Who likes the idea of a movie marathon, more than they like the idea of running? Do you know someone who loves Sidewalk and shouts it from the mountain top? Or would you like to torture the cinephile in your life by forcing them to sit through hours of bad movies? Nominate that special someone for the Sidewalk Bad Movie Marathon now!

Participants will compete to see who can last the longest in the face of some really terrible movies. In addition to watching bad movies, participants will work with Sidewalk staff and volunteers to raise much-needed funds to support the important education and outreach work of Sidewalk Film.

By participating and fundraising, your nominee will help ensure the continuation of important educational programs like the Sidewalk Youth Board, Sidewalk EDU, and the Black Lens Filmmaker Grant and Membership Program.

Registration, Fees, and Fundraising Goals:
Each marathoner will be asked to raise a minimum amount of funds to cover their expenses and to help Sidewalk Film continue its mission to encourage filmmaking in Alabama and build savvy, media-literate audiences. A non-refundable $100 nomination fee is required at the time of nomination and will be credited towards your nominee's fundraising goal. Registration is open to all and is unlimited, however, The Bad Movie Marathon event is only open to 30 participants. 


Each share, tweet, and email helps us spread the word about Sidewalk Film Festival / Sidewalk Film Center + Cinema.
