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.

Gregory Kohn - Writer/Director
Gregory’s first feature, Northeast, a “vividly natural portrayal” of an aimless playboy, was part of the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival and later distributed by Tribeca Film.  After Northeast, Gregory directed numerous music videos, most notably for the band Sleigh Bells. He also directed for television, including true-life crime shows for networks such as ID, Oxygen, and The Travel Channel. From these jobs, he was able to pursue his own artistic endeavors, including the project that ultimately became his second feature. That film, Come Down Molly, premiered at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival with a sold out screening and great reviews. Gregory was born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida. He now lives in Los Angeles with his wife Jane and his dog Richard.
