Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January and going on to play SXSW in March, Mike Birbiglia's "Sleepwalk With Me" has slowly been building up some strong word of mouth. And in fact, just last week the film opened the BAMcinemafest in New York City to sold out crowds. At the end of the summer, the movie will make its way to theaters and to give you a little peek, we've got the exclusive poster for the film below.

On Wednesday night the Brooklyn Academy of Music kicked off its 4th annual BAMcinemaFest, a 10-day showcase of independent films culled from Cannes, Sundance, Toronto, Berlin, SXSW, and other festivals from around the world. Highlights from this year’s line-up include Sundance sensation “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” controversial true crime story “Compliance,” found-footage horror anthology “V/H/S,” psychosexual comedy “Nobody Walks” and many, many more. Check out the full line-up here. While some might have guessed ‘Beasts’ to be an obvious choice to open the fest as it's the film coming off the festival circuit with the most deafening buzz, BAM instead selected Mike Birbiglia’s “Sleepwalk With Me.” After seeing the film, which set and filmed in Brooklyn, it was clear that it was the perfect choice. Based on Birbiglia’s autobiographical one-man show, the story follows Matt Pandamiglio, (a proxy for the comedian), a struggling stand-up who moves in with his long term girlfriend and develops a sleeping disorder that causes him to act out his dreams. Both hilarious and surprisingly sincere, the film is a triumph for Birbiglia who directed, co-wrote and stars in the film.
