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.

The Weight
Directed by Thomas Rennier
USA, Narrative, 80 minutes

Thad is a blue-collar worker from a small town in Missouri. His life becomes entangled with burdens and regret when his boss involves him in murder. A domino effect sets turmoil in motion when a farmer’s dog finds the bodies buried in the woods. Thad’s ex-wife Julie, a private investigator, and the local sheriff search for answers as things go from bad to worse. Featuring Alabamian Clayne Crawford, The Weight is a heavy tale involving love and loss.
