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.

File this under advanced storytelling. In 1917, copper miners in Bisbee, Arizona staged a strike that was met with extreme resistance. Fearing that the shutdown would hinder the war effort overseas, thousands of deputized men rounded up the 1100 plus workers, put them on a train bound for New Mexico, and left them to die in the desert. 100 years later, filmmakers and the town’s citizens stage a fiercely dramatic reenactment of events in an effort for reconciliation and to shed light on the largely unspoken tragedy.
