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.

In an attempt to find her place in the world, tenacious 11-year-old Toni joins the dance drill team at her local recreation center. Lush and mesmerizing, The Fits delicately shows Toni’s yearning for acceptance, a desire that becomes more difficult when her newfound teammates begin to have horrifying fainting fits. The film is an engrossing psychological journey into the end of childhood, one that offers no easy answers for viewers. Variety writer Nick Schager accurately calls The Fits “a meticulous mood of psychological isolation and beguiling mystery”.
