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.

Using Sched.org as our primary scheduling tool, we are happy to offer four different ways to view this year’s lineup. By hovering your cursor over the "Schedule" tab below, you can take your pick of a Simple, Expanded, Grid, or By Venue view.

Alabama Chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society Present Nathan Avakian & the International Youth Silent Film Festival
Special Event
Run Time: 90 Minutes

Locals know that the Alabama Theatre’s Mighty Wurlitzer is the engine that runs this block, but few festivalgoers realize that the theatre organ is an integral part of cinema history. Organist Nathan Avakian will provide the soundtrack for a historic silent short, then accompany a selection of contemporary short films from the International Youth Silent Film Festival. The IYSFF inspires young filmmakers to share their stories as they reinvent the art of silent film.

Presented by the Alabama Chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society. - Glenny Brock
