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.

Alabama TASH
Birmingham, AL
I live in Birmingham, Alabama.  My husband Steve and I have four children.  Our middle son Kyle, was born with a rare form of congenital hydrocephalus.  Kyle uses ACC and gestures to communicate and is also a power chair user.  Kyle is working towards CIE with his employment team at his unpaid internship with Ascension Healthcare.  Kyle joined Ascension when he was 15.  Kyle and I advocate for systems change in our state to help people with the most significant disabilities have access to CIE.  Currently, we are also working with a housing coalition that we put together to develop an affordable, inclusive and accessible housing community in Birmingham.  I would love to talk with other disability-forward visionaries that are working on predevelopment housing communities.   I work for PeopleFirst of Alabama as a project manager for our IDD  Community Waiver Program that was launched 10/1/2021.  PeopleFirst will be providing two services for this waiver - Peer Specialists and Family Navigators.   I am currently a cohort for the 2021-2022 class of Partners in PolicyMaking in Alabama.  
I am a member of Applied Self-Direction and participate on their advisory council.
I have attended three in-person TASH conferences and Kyle and I have presented at one.  This will be my second virtual!  We look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new friends!
