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.

In this award-winning Sundance favorite, follow nine high school students as they prepare to compete in the world’s premier science fair. Dr. McCalla, a dedicated teacher and mentor, captures the essence of the documentary when she says, “These kids are going to change the world because they are the best
and brightest.” And these students allow that reality to fuel their success. By the end, you will find yourself pulling and cheering for these current and future world-changers, proving science fairs can be super exciting.
