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.

The Babushkas of Chernobyl documents the lives of those who, against government policy and advice, have decided to return to live within the 30km Exclusion Zone around Reactor #4, site of the worst nuclear disaster the world has ever seen. Around 100 people, the majority elderly women, returned to live off the land and their meager pensions until the end of their lives. Through stories of mutual strength, pride, and stubbornness, the documentary weaves together the lives of these women as they struggle to survive in the irradiated fallout area.
