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.

Life & Liberty

In 1970 the Dallas Cowboy’s ushered in the phenomenon of the modern NFL cheerleader. The San Diego Chargettes, Chicago Honey Bears, and LA Embraceable Ewes quickly followed. Despite the revenue generated by the new-era cheerleader, positions were mostly unpaid. Playboy entered the scene, offering compensation, but when several Chargettes posed for the magazine they were fired for such. SIDELINED recounts the untold, controversial (and maddening) story. The short documentary screens with SPECTRUMS: LEEOZ, a thought-provoking portrait of amazing Israeli trans woman, Leeoz.
