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.

Ella Brennan: Commanding the Table
Directed by Leslie Iwerks
USA, Documentary, 93 minutes
This film follows the engaging and charming (and now 91-year- old) Ella Brennan, the woman behind Southern cuisine as we know it. Ella has gifted Americans with jazz brunch, Bananas Foster, and Emeril Lagasse. The film follows her journey to become a James Beard award-winning restaurateur, as she survives family disputes, the ravages of Hurricane Katrina, and the difficulties of perfecting brunch on her quest to create the “best damn restaurant this country has ever had.” If you enjoy eating, New Orleans, or sassy Southern women, you don’t want to miss this film.  - Rachel Ahrnsen
