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.

Using Sched.org as our primary scheduling tool, we are happy to offer four different ways to view this year’s lineup. By hovering your cursor over the "Schedule" tab below, you can take your pick of a Simple, Expanded, Grid, or By Venue view.

Robert Carter

Screenwriter / Director / Producer
Chicago, Illinois
I'm a screenwriter and director from Chicago, working mainly with comedies (usually weird, offbeat, or dark comedies). I wrote & directed my first feature film this summer -- it's currently in post-production.

I've written and directed a web series and three short films, which have played at many film festivals, including Sidewalk, DC Shorts, and Middle Coast.

My feature script, MY FRIEND DMITRI, was a 2nd round selection this year at AFF. I've written many other feature screenplays and will be working on two more this winter.
