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.

The Greasy Strangler, all merits aside, is the grossest and most depraved comedy we’ve shown in a while. And that’s saying a lot. The film follows a father and his grown son who live together in a complicated relationship. The two fall for a woman and compete against one another for her affection. All the while, a hideous grease covered monster preys on its victims in the night. I can’t explain our fascination with this film, but we love it and quote it a lot. Imagine a NC­17 Tim & Eric family drama walking a thin line between genuinely funny and relentlessly nightmarish.
