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

Rudy and Rennie North were happily enjoying their retirement years in their upscale Las Vegas community. Then a stranger arrived, identified herself as their new guardian and confiscated their lives. The North’s story, among others, is profiled in THE GUARDIANS, a documentary that shines light on the legal kidnapping of elderly people. Using court orders, professional for-profit guardians are able to take control of individuals’ healthcare and financial decisions, exerting complete authority, separating individuals from friends, families and spouses and stealing entire estates.
