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.

"Last Christmas"
Dir: Nathan Adloff
RT 11 min. USA
A suicidal young man finds a friend in the unlikeliest of places.

Bridging Ireland and Alabama, The State Of Being Human traces the roots of filmmaker David Merriman’s own admitted homophobia. Featuring conversational interviews with members of the LGBTQ community in both Ireland and Alabama, Merriman, who remains at the center of the film, works to revise his initially narrow viewpoint and to understand the true cost of bigotry. The documentary also features an unforgettable interview with Chief Justice Roy Moore. The 2015 Shout screening of The State Of Being Human marks the film’s world premiere.
