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.

High school senior, Miles, is blessed with an adoring mother (the lovable Molly Shannon) and cursed by a cantankerous father (industry vet Stephen Root). When an unexpected event dashes Miles' college dreams he finds a creative solution: the girls volleyball team. A refreshing addition the 2016 film scene, Miles explores the hopes and fears of the budding of adulthood and the heartbreaks of middle age - while drawing a character who's queerness isn't their obstacle, rather, simply one color added to the many shades that create a leading man.
