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.

The Tribe Sponsored by Carmike Cinemas - Summit 16
Limited Capacity seats available

Possibly the year’s most revolutionary and controversial movie, The Tribe explores the ruthless inner workings of a Ukrainian boarding school for the deaf. Told entirely through Russian sign language and bold physicality, the film follows a new student as he navigates through the corrupt hierarchy of students and faculty. Swiftly, he marks his place within the student-run crime and prostitution ring, yet things take a turn when he falls for a girl. Desperate to hold onto her, our story spirals into a stunning climax of brutality.

- Kyle McKinnon

Reminder: Though this film is sponsored by Carmike Cinemas, it is showing at the Carver Theatre.
