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.

This film is a part of the Life & Liberty Sidebar sponsored by EBSCO.

Speed Sisters follows the lives of the five members of the Middle East's first all-female racing team. Attempting to practice and compete in any sport in occupied Palestine presents unique challenges, doing so as a woman, especially in a traditionally male dominated sport, is nearly impossible. Without access to practice tracks or the means to acquire actual racecars, the racers scrap together street vehicles and practice on dusty roadways in the shadow of Israeli military compounds all while dodging bullets, literally.
