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.

Directed by: Yen Tan
USA | 85 Minutes

Red Mountain Theatre Company

Through often-uncomfortable camera angles, a beautiful screenplay, and a black and white memoir-esque style, director Yen Tan paints an intimate portrait of a family dealing (and not dealing) with their personal HIV/AIDS story. It might be the actors' subtle performance or possibly that the film's narrow focus is unwaveringly personal in scope, but, regardless, 1985 is a gripping portrayal of the toll that this crisis had - and continues to have - on individual people.
