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.

Liberation Day
Directed by Uģis Olte and Morten Traavik
Norway, Documentary, 97 minutes

In one of the most unusual footnotes in popular music history, in 2015 Slovenien industrial/conceptual art-group, Laibach, traveled, by request, to North Korea to play a concert. Liberation Day documents the band’s trip to the secretive and heavily-restricted nation. Confronted with the demands of an ever-present censorship board, as well traveling under heavy monitoring, the group walks the thin line of maintaining artistic integrity while attempting to stay out of trouble. The setlist includes covers of 80’s hits as well as songs from The Sound of Music.
