The 17th Annual Sidewalk Film Festival
August 28-30

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 schedule is subject to change.

I'm a video producer for a newspaper by day and an aspiring filmmaker by night. I'll be at Sidewalk with my good friend and writing partner promoting our one room web series, Dirty Laundry that can be watched in its entirety on our site. We're both really into sketch comedy and things of an episodic nature. I've recently finished my first feature screenplay, Something Left, and looking forward to focusing my attention on some pilot ideas in the near future.
