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.

The Alabama Theatre is sponsored by the Greater Birmingham Convention & Visitors Bureau.

One of the most beautiful, entrancing and intensely original films in the line-up, MA is an artful non-verbal work (it features only a few lines of dialogue). Written and directed by the amazing (VMA award-winning and Emmy nominated) choreographer, dancer and filmmaker, Celia Rowlson-Hall, who also stars, the film is truly visionary. It is also, perhaps, the most experimental film in the festival weekend. Part dance musical, part melodrama, part religious allegory... not to be missed. We are incredibly honored to have MA in the 2016 Sidewalk line-up.
