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.

Opening Night
A victim of the Great Recession, Florida family man, Rodney Hyden, hears a fantastical tale that he thinks just might be the answer to his ever-mounting debt. A Caribbean Island with buried treasure in the form of $2-million worth of cocaine and a verbal treasure map virtually pointing to the locale of the fortune. What
could it possibly hurt to try and find the loot and dig it up? While a cautionary tale of the trappings of the American dream and the story of good-intentions-gone-bad, the docu-narrative WHITE TIDE is also a heartening and fun as heck roller coaster ride of a film. The stylish, lager-than-life, action- heist-thriller-documentary will kick Sidewalk weekend off in the true spirit of fantastical Southern storytelling. Multi-year Sidewalk Film Festival alums, director Theo Love and producer Bryan Storkel, along with subject Rodney Hyden and Alabama native Jamie Hyden, are scheduled to join us for opening night. Party and treasure hunt to follow the screening.
