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 St. James Hotel, located at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, has born witness to much of the city’s painful history, from the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement, and has remained a resilient community anchor throughout. Just years after an expensive community-driven restoration effort, economic decline and unresolved civic tensions have led this beloved community heirloom into decay. Now, with the windows of the St. James boarded up, Selma residents grapple with the multiple meanings the hotel holds, while reflecting on the ghostly presences, personal memories, and passed-down lore contained within its walls.
