    One of Birmingham’s proudest events, the Sidewalk Film Festival, will be returning once again on August 26-28 in the downtown Birmingham Theatre District.

    This festival is put on by Alabama Moving Image Association, which is a non-profit organization that pushes filmmaking in Alabama. AMIA has quite the resume, such as a sister festival to Sidewalk called SHOUT LGBTQ Film Festival, Alabama’s first and only film festival made by and about the LGBTQ community. The organization also hosts Sidewalk Sidewrite, a screenplay writing competition, as well as many other creative events to encourage filmmakers and writers alike to continue their journey.
