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 interactive documentary explores Guntersville, Alabama, through the lens of its local newspaper, The Advertiser Gleam. Visitors are invited to experience the world's first audio visual small-town paper via computer and headphones. You explore the stories that interest you – be it an underground fight club, a 1950s plane flight, or a newborn goat named Miracle (just to name a few). The filmmakers will be on hand to answer questions and present portions of the film live. This programming is available to all VIP, Weekend, and Day passholders, but seating is limited.  Guests will be seated on a first-come, first-serve basis.  The interactive programming runs on Saturday only.
