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.

After a weekend of drinking beer and skipping stones, co­directors Ryan Seitz and Daniel Skaggs had a curious thought: what if people skipped stones professionally? A quick Google search led the filmmakers to a meeting with the people who make up the little known community of competitive stone skippers, including Guinness World Record holder Kurt “Mountain Man” Steiner. Motivated to expose the phenomenon of this obscure sport to the world, Seitz and Skaggs profile Steiner and Russ “Rock Bottom” Byars, among other competitors, as they train to compete for the currently held world record.
