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.

Director Joshua Oppenheimer revisits Indonesia and it’s bloody past in this companion piece to the Oscar-nominated The Act of Killing. The Look of Silence follows optometrist Adi, whose brother was killed during the Indonesian genocide of 1965 by murderous factions still currently in power. After learning of the identities of the perpetrators, Adi decides to end the cycle of suffering. He confronts his brother’s killers, offering them eye exams in exchange for a recollection of their past atrocities. While unraveling the horrific story of his brother’s death, Adi discovers the numb and unnerved state of a silenced people.
