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.

The Astrologer
Directed by Craig Denney
USA, Narrative, 96 minutes

Filmed in 1975 and never before released on home video, The Astrologer deserves rank as the Citizen Kane of bizarre movies. Starring director Craig Denney, it tells the story of a small-time fortune teller whose so-called psychic powers propel him to worldwide fame. The reason to see this though is for its head-scratching execution: nearly every mindblowing second of this film calls to question “what were they thinking?” Don’t miss this rare chance to view the only remaining 35mm print of this film. This special screening is brought to you by SoppinWetCinema.
