Event of the Week: Sidewalk Film Festival 2011

We’re super excited that the 13th season of the Sidewalk Film Festival kicks off this Friday, August 26th and runs through Sunday the 28th.

The Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival, is a celebration of new independent cinema in downtown Birmingham and since its debut in 1999, filmmakers from across the country and around the world have come to Birmingham to screen their work at Sidewalk and have been thrilled to discover fresh, enthusiastic crowds eager to devour new independent cinema.

With nine venues located within Birmingham’s historic Theatre District (featuring the newly restored Alabama Theatre, a 2,200 seat movie palace built by Paramount in 1927), spontaneity rules the schedule of Sidewalk attendees. Low-priced weekend passes provide easy access to Sidewalk venues, encouraging attendees to seek out new films and sample programming they may not otherwise see. The result is a crowd rich in diversity and united in a hunger for new film.

Tickets are available to just one film and are also sold as weekend passes. There will be something for all ages follow this link see a list of their Family Film Lineup.
