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.

Limited Capacity seats available

After being widely overlooked by the music industry, blues and soul singer Syl
Johnson took his earnings and started a chain of fried fish fast food restaurants. Syl had done well as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, but was often overshadowed by his Hi Records label mate, Al Green. Years after he stopped making music he discovered his songs are some of the most sampled in hip-hop. Any Way The Wind Blows traces Syl’s roots, and follows him on a comeback tour supporting a box set of his music released by the highly influential Numero Group.
