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.

In 80’s communist Romania the series Dallas was the only U.S. television allowed as it was thought it would serve as a cautionary tale of despicable Western greed. Such backfired and Dallas became obsessively well loved in Romania, so much so that billionaire Ilie Alexandru built a full size Southfork ranch replica outside of Bucharest (accompanied by a replica of the Eifel Tower). But Hotel Dallas isn’t about that... well not exactly. The docu-narrative-experimental film beautifully, abstractly and often strangely explores communism and the allure of the fantastical. Dallas’ Bobby, Patrick Duffy, stars.
