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.

Almost thirty years after her untimely death, LOVE GILDA skillfully constructs the cinematic biography of legendary comedian Gilda Radner via interviews, writings, home movies, and, most impressively, recently discovered audiotapes. Featuring interviews with Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy, Cecily Strong and more, LOVE GILDA is a beautiful time capsule of a documentary. Hearing Radner reflect on her life in her own words and voice is a true privilege and watching her successors bask in the glow of Radner‘s writings is breathtaking.
