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

Deli Man entertainingly traces the origin of what is known as the Jewish delicatessen, a uniquely American creation that was forged by the melding of ethnic food traditions that Jewish immigrants brought from Germany and Eastern Europe. Once a prolific institution that boasted over 1500 kosher delis in NYC alone, there are now only approximately 150 eateries left in the entire country. This documentary simultaneously explores the struggle for the preservation of this dwindling food culture while celebrating the culinary tradition and community that has always surrounded the deli, all while profiling the charismatic Ziggy Gruber.
