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.

Limited Capacity seats available

Starring the creative minds behind its writing and direction, Apartment Troubles follows a pair of dysfunctional roommates in their attempt to escape eviction by their reasonably frustrated Manhattan landlord. Jennifer Prediger plays Olivia, a spiritually inclined actress, alongside Jess Weixler as Nicole, a conceptual artist. When their landlord’s patience runs out and Nicole’s cat dies under mysterious circumstances, the duo decides to hit the road and visit Nicole’s wealthy aunt (played by Megan Mullally) on the opposite coast. Between reality TV try-outs, tarot card readings and shotgunning deserts the pair question the nature and future of their co-dependent friendship. Apartment Troubles is hilarious, charming, astute and not-to-be-missed.

- Hallie Tarpley & Jaxon Thomley
