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.

This film is a part of the Life & Liberty Sidebar sponsored by EBSCO.

This screening is sponsored by Birmingham-Southern College.

This film plays out like a fairy tale; a young Alabaman woman falls in love with a
Costa Rican man while visiting family. The small twist is that this man would later
foment a revolution in his home county and face years of exile. However,
Henrietta Boggs is not the “helpless Southern belle” in this story, she’s a fiery,
intelligent young woman. She plays an active role, doing what she can to shape
the political upheaval and subsequent reform in a country that she considers a
second home. Henrietta currently quietly resides in Montgomery, Alabama.
