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.

Trials: Finding the Medals profiles four of the best para-rowers in the country as they train and compete in hopes of landing a place in the para-rowing category on the U.S. National Rowing Team. Each of the competitors face their own individual challenges and have to overcome insurmountable odds to pursue their dreams. Included among the stellar athletes profiled is University of Alabama coach Margaret Stran, who helped to build the college’s acclaimed wheelchair basketball program. Trials is a celebration of the human spirit and a true love letter to the majesty and sport of rowing.
