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.

Menashe is the Hasidic Jewish film you never knew you needed to see. Threatened with the loss of his son unless he remarries, widower Menashe attempts to find order and meaning within the strict customs of his orthodox religion.  Performed in Yiddish and shot over the course of two years in Borough Park, Brooklyn, Menashe will charm and move you with its poignant and powerful story and fascinate you with its unprecedented glimpse into a frequently insular society.
