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.

Welcome To Leith is the shocking-but-true story of a 24-person ghost town in North Dakota struggling against one man's extremist vision. Shot over an 8-month period, the film documents white separatist Craig Cobb’s arrest for terrorizing the citizens of Leith on an armed patrol and his release from jail six months later. Set against the stark, desolate beauty of this almost abandoned state, Welcome To Leith asks who will be allowed to shape the future of one small town, and subtly questions what exactly might be at stake for all Americans.
