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.

Most Beautiful Island
Directed by Ana Asensio
USA, Narrative, 80 minutes

Luciana lives under the radar in America as an undocumented immigrant. Struggling to support herself and barely holding it together, she becomes lured into a questionable opportunity that rings too good to be true. Told through a mix of reflectively long shots and jarring tension, Most Beautiful Island showcases two sides of freedom--the euphoria of living as you please and the unpredictable cost of choice. Quietly terrifying and at times hypnotic, Most Beautiful Island is writer/director/star Ana Asensio’s impressive directorial debut.
- Charlie Sanders & Rachel Morgan
