The 18th Annual Sidewalk Film Festival
August 26-28

Sidewalk Film Festival is produced by the Alabama Moving Image Association, a federally recognized 501c3 non-profit organization with a mission to inspire, encourage and support filmgoers, the city of Birmingham and the filmmaking community. In addition to hosting the annual film festival, we host monthly networking and educational events, a monthly documentary series, short film and screenwriting competitions, manage a youth board and a variety of other year-round programs. 

Tickets sales to our events cover approximately 1/3 of our annual operating cash budget, so we depend on corporate sponsors, grant-making organizations and individuals like you to survive. if you’d like to know more about supporting Sidewalk, please contact us at sidewalk@sidewalkfest.com.

Using Sched.org as our primary scheduling tool, we are happy to offer four different ways to view this year’s lineup. By hovering your cursor over the "Schedule" tab below, you can take your pick of a Simple, Expanded, Grid, or By Venue view.

The Master Cleanse

The Alabama Theatre is sponsored by the Greater Birmingham Convention & Visitors Bureau.

A group of strangers attending a spiritual retreat in the woods become emotionally attached to the toxins removed from their bodies. A transformation that begins with nauseous reactions to foreign herbal elixirs slowly turns each guest’s deeply rooted psychological issues into cute pipe germ monsters. The range of reactions from each participant’s experience is exhibited in their personally birthed creature. A rare indie creature feature, both heartwarming and scary, The Master Cleanse will keep you gripped and guessing until the end. The film features performances from Johnny Galecki, Anna Friel, Oliver Platt and Anjelica Huston.
