SideTalks is the official podcast of the Sidewalk Film Center + Cinema. Hosted by Sidewalk Creative Director Rachel Morgan and Programmer Corey Craft, featuring the Sidewalk staff as well as industry professionals, SideTalks takes on all things cinematic. Released Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and produced by Boutwell Studios in Birmingham, Alabama, the podcast provides a fun, fast-paced spotlight on select current and retrospective films from all eras and genres and related cinematic topics by way of debates, deep dives, interviews and notes on “what we’re watching”. The podcast also highlights select events and films screening at the annual Sidewalk Film Festival and year-round Sidewalk Cinema (newly opened as of Fall 2019) and provides an awesome companion for festival-goers, cinema patrons and film enthusiasts alike.
