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.

This screening is sponsored by Jackson Women's Health Organization. 

The debate regarding abortion remains a steady battle in the U.S. No community knows such better than the city of Jackson, Mississippi. Focusing on the last open abortion clinic in the poorest state in America, Jackson profiles three women affected by each side of the debate, the abortion clinic’s director, a pro­life pregnancy center director, and a poor, single mother pregnant with her fifth child. Edited from 700 hours of footage and shot over three years, Jackson provides shocking glimpses of the reality faced by women living with the constant threat of the removal of choice.
