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.

Run Time 103 Minutes

With executive producer Robert Redford, this documentary is a love letter to surfing and the friendships forged among those credited with bringing mainstream popularity to the sport. Following the lives of legends like Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, Benji Weatherly, and more, learn how what began as an escape from family difficulties transforms into a thrill-seeking hobby and eventually an all-consuming way of life. This emotional look at loss, separation and redemption proves that brokenness builds brotherhood. MOMENTUM GENERATION screens directly after surf narrative, AGE OF SUMMER, consider a double feature!
