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.

Looking for new perspectives on life is often best gained from experience first hand.
By The River is a documentary exploring this practice. The filmmakers set out on a
journey from Texas to California with no plan but to encounter the unknown.
Interviews make up this existential thread weaved together in a natural seamless
conversation between strangers met along their journey. Always guided by the drive
to move forward, Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood) and director Kevin Ford rekindle
audience's curiosity and desire for travel and expansion of self.
