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

With the sounding of a conch shell, runners start on the Barkley Marathon. Cloaked in secrecy and sadistic eccentricity, the Barkley is a 100-130 mile race through the Tennessee Mountains featuring 120,000 feet of elevation change and a rich quirky history of camaraderie and competition. Those few that even finish join a minuscule group, an honor that has made it an international affair. The Barkley Marathons documents the 2 and a half-day journey of 40 runners as they embark on one of the most grueling trail races in the world.
