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.

Lisa (Regina Hall) is an overworked manager at regional, just-off-the-interstate Hooters knock-off, Double Whammies. She navigates the usual challenges of running a sports bar while being underappreciated and second-guessed. A break-in and employee in a bad relationship raise the stakes on the usual hokum. Leading the cast, Hall’s character balances tolerance and strength with building fury as she navigates the unavoidable culture of misogyny. Yet her most driving trait, like the undercurrent of the film, is simple kindness. SUPPORT THE GIRLS sub-textually raises the questions: what is strength and what is success, yet, all-the-while, delivers a super funny alt-comedy.
