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.

Ever wondered how much time it takes to design a typeface? What about one composed of Chinese characters? For Taiwan, one of the last places in the world to use traditional Chinese characters, the question is one that holds deep cultural significance. With interviews from some of the region’s most innovative typographers and font designers, Hanzi is a look into not only the complexities of Chinese typeface design and development, but also the growing appreciation for Chinese characters and writing. - Charlie Bice
