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 B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography
Directed by Errol Morris
USA, Documentary, 76 minutes
Saturday, August 26th
10:00 AM

Possibly one of the greatest documentary filmmakers of all time, certainly one of the greatest living, Errol Morris takes a turn from questioning investigator to gracious pal. His new film The B-Side focuses on portrait photographer, Elsa Dorfman, now in her late 70’s. Morris covers much of the typical ground–memory, loss, uncertainty, but also moves closer to sentimentality than usual. Dorfman is known for her use of a rare large-format instant Polaroid camera and her connection to Beat generation authors. She recounts, reflects, ponders and is, generally, intriguing, funny and wise. - Rachel Morgan
