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.

A Ghost Story
Directed by David Lowery
USA, Narrative, 92 minutes

After a musician’s sudden death, his spirit stays behind to watch over his grieving girlfriend in the house he loved. But eventually she moves on, leaving the white-sheeted ghost to linger through the ages and observe the brevity of human existence. Sidewalk alum David Lowery’s latest work, featuring Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara, is a beautifully patient and poetic rumination on grief, impermanence, and legacy that packs an emotional wallop. - Corey Craft
