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.

A love letter to the dying art of the drive-in movie theater, this documentary depicts the lengths to which a band of ragtag film aficionados will go to save the Mahoning Drive-In Theater in the Pennsylvania countryside. When economics and changing technology prevent the theater from showing first-run movies in 2014, the days of this drive-in seem numbered — but a staff of fanatical volunteers takes charge, determined to keep it afloat with an exciting new business model.
