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.

When Arthur Martinez, a real-life actor and computer technician, sets out to star in a
semi-autobiographical narrative about his life, the lines between fact and fiction become
heavily distorted. Finding himself often at odds with directors Mike Ott and Nathan Silver,
Martinez struggles to deliver a “marketable” film that maintains emotional truth. A sort of
companion film to Kate Plays Christine (also playing at Sidewalk), the two explore the
process of finding one’s character, as well the trust and manipulation that come from
working within someone else’s vision. - Kyle McKinnon
