About Sidewalk Film Festival


1821 2nd Ave North, BIRMINGHAM, AL 35203, US

Mission Statement

Sidewalk is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging filmmaking in Alabama and building audiences for independent film.


We produce the nationally recognized Sidewalk Film Festival, the SHOUT LGBTQ Film Festival; organize a wide-variety of educational programs for filmmakers and hold other events that create interest in and enthusiasm for independent film. To expand on this work and better serve our mission we’ve launched a capital campaign to fund the Sidewalk Film Center + Cinema, a two screen independent movie theater in the heart of Birmingham’s historic theatre district.

For twenty years our organization’s premiere event has been the Sidewalk Film Festival, which showcases the work of more than 250 filmmakers and welcomes 15,000 film lovers to Birmingham annually. Since its debut in 1999, filmmakers from across the country and around the world have come to Birmingham to screen their work at Sidewalk and have been thrilled to discover enthusiastic crowds eager to devour new independent cinema. The Festival continues to thrive with increased in submissions, ticket sales, and press coverage. The 25th annual Sidewalk Film Festival will take place August 21-27, 2023.

Sidewalk celebrates inclusion and diversity for the benefit of the community and our employees. We take affirmative action to ensure equal opportunity for all applicants without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, marital status, amnesty, or status as a covered veteran in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local laws.
