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.

"A Peaceful Man"
Dir: Harrison Norris
RT 4 min. Australia
Beaten within an inch of his life, a peaceful man has a gruesome epiphany through violence.

The Invitation
Will and his new girlfriend are guests at a dinner party hosted by his estranged ex-wife. Considering the couples past some unpleasantness is expected, but Will quickly begins to suspect that something more than typical inquietude is afoot. The Invitation captures the essence of the most awkward social gathering imaginable and combines it with the momentum of a runaway train. Creepy and captivating, the thriller does an incredible job keeping its audience guessing. Sharp casting and precise direction lead the list of wonderful things about The Invitation and there’s truly not a wasteful minute in the feature.
