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.

During a 1974 on-air newscast in Sarasota, Florida, TV host Christine Chubbuck committed suicide
with a revolver aimed behind her right ear. The first haunting image we see in Kate Plays Christine is
the actress Kate Lyn Sheil in costume, mute and introspective as a flurry of technicians ready her for
this infamous scene. The not-easily- achieved balance between art-based- on-tragedy and the
glorification of violence is explored in this hybrid narrative-documentary, which premiered at the 2016
Sundance Film Festival and was awarded the Documentary Special Jury Award for Writing.
