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.

Originally created on an obscure message board in 2009 as part of a Photoshop
contest, Slenderman has quickly spread across the Internet, morphing into
something almost folkloric. In the late spring of 2014, two 12-year- old girls
committed an act that showed just how far the myth of Slenderman had grown
and how dangerous it really had become. In this HBO Documentary, the
filmmakers take the audience through the aftermath and trial of two pre-teens
who believed in the Slenderman myth all too vividly.
