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.

On August 1, 1966 a lone sniper terrorized the campus at the University of Texas at Austin from the observation deck on the 30 th floor of the University’s iconic tower. For over an hour Charles Joseph Whitman reigned terror from above, wounding 32 people and killing 14. With little place to hide, hundreds were trapped without a way to escape. Tower recounts the events of the day through archival footage, modern interviews, and unique rotoscope animation of dramatic recreations of what happened until 3 police officers and 1 citizen were able to end the assault.
