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.

Fraud broke onto the 2016 festival scene with instant notoriety after its controversial premiere at the Hot Docs Film Festival this past April. Though labeled a documentary at the notable premier, much of the audience found the suggestion enraging. Here we label it as a hybrid work of fiction... Labels aside, the filmmakers constructed the story after discovering countless hours of family footage on YouTube and mined them to create a piece that is simultaneously extremely original, enjoyably controversial and intensely uncomfortable. We anticipate that the Sidewalk audience will have a lot to think and say about Fraud.
