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.

Set in the 1980’s, Cheerleader is a brilliantly insane style piece, but with a surprising amount of heart. It feels like a collision of The Virgin Suicide and Election, but, at the same time, is wholly its own film. You won’t find anything else like it in the line-up. It's a stylish fever dream surrounded by a thoughtful narrative... one or the other would have made the film lovable enough to program, but, considering it has both, it's pretty close to perfect. I have a major crush on this film. Major.
