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.

Even weathered Birmingham residents are unlikely to know the story of activist Nina Miglionico, the longest-practicing female attorney in Alabama. Despite intimidating threats and even attempts on her life, Miglionico advocated strongly for racial equality and women’s rights throughout her career. Elected to the Birmingham city council in 1963, among numerous causes, she fought for women to serve on juries (a right not granted until 1966). Despite her drive and forcefulness, accounts of Ms. Miglionico reflect how she nurtured those around her and inspired the next generation of Alabama’s activists, politicians, and attorneys.
