Her debut feature film, A Luv Tale (1999), won the Audience Award at the Hollywood Black Film Festival.
Sidra also produced the 2013 NAACP Image Award-winning documentary Free Angela and All Political Prisoners.
Sidra lived in Ghana for two years where she produced documentaries, 50 episodes of a Pan-African talk show.
She also created Gate Pass Entertainment, a New York-based event planning business to satisfy her love for helping people bring their ideas to life.
