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.

This screening is sponsored by Alain Bouchard and Deanna Newman. 

Darius McCollum loves the New York City transit system... a lot. Beginning at age 15, Darius began stealing city buses and overtaking subway trains. Diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, he has been arrested 32 times over the last 36 years for impersonating city bus drivers and subway conductors. Fascinating, but tragic, Off The Rails not only examines Darius’ unique obsession with transportation, but also investigates the New York criminal justice system. Recently announced, there is a feature narrative film based on Darius’ life story in development, Julia Roberts is set to produce and star. - Rachel Morgan
