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.

Providing an overview of the history of the first-of-its-kind basketball team, The Hollywood Shorties, the eponymously titled documentary, combines current interviews with captivating archival footage. Formed in the 1950s and made up of actors who, as little people, experienced Hollywood typecasting, the team reached its zenith in the 1980’s, dissolving not long after the peak. Frequently compared to the Harlem Globetrotters, The Hollywood Shorties put on an amazing show filled with impressive athletic skill and wild antics. Informative, entertaining and celebratory, the documentary profiles the little known team that defied cultural stereotypes and reinvented an American pastime.
