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.

In the 2012 Olympics, women’s boxing was included for the first time. Representing the U.S. was Claressa “T-Rex” Shields, a contender for gold and the youngest competitor at just 17. Raised on the tough streets of Flint, Michigan, Claressa is undefeated, with a fierceness that extends beyond the ring. The only stable force in her life is her coach, Jason Crutchfield, who has trained her since she was 11 years old. Claressa dreams of taking her family to a safer place and winning a gold medal may be her only chance.
