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.

Hippopotamus aren’t exactly the most loved animals on the planet. That title is left to be decided on the battlefield where dog and cat lovers fight to a bloody end. Also, lets face it, hippopotamus are kind of jerks; plus, despite having webbed feet, they aren’t good swimmers and can’t even float. That aside, many folks out there love the uncelebrated hippopotamus, so much so that they collect anything in their likeness. The Pursuit of Hippo-ness is a profile of such individuals; the film is an entertaining, fun, sweet and beautifully photographed portrait of collectors of the hippopotamus.
