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.

Life & Liberty

In 2012 the players of a Steubenville, Ohio football team raped a female teenage classmate. The circumstances surrounding the crime are beyond disturbing. However, even more unsettling is what followed the incident – a town that ignored the crime, covered it up and blamed the victim. Bravely, by scouring social media, amateur crime blogger, Alex Goddard, was able to uncover the horrific details. ROLL RED ROLL skillfully recounts the crime and its circumstances and in so doing investigates rape culture, the American sports cult mentality and dangerous, toxic masculinity.
