Sidewalk Film works in the Birmingham metro area to help filmmakers of all ages and levels of experience learn valuable new skills, hone their craft and make meaningful connections to further their careers and to build media literate, knowledgeable audiences who appreciate the art of cinema. This is achieved through numerous free and low cost education and outreach programs like the Sidewalk Youth Board, the Black Lens Filmmaker Grant and Membership program, Sidewalk Salon, Networking Nights, Book + Film Club and many more, in addition to our annual Sidewalk Film Festival and the programming of our new facility, the Sidewalk Film Center + Cinema. 

Sidewalk is a federally recognized 501c(3) non-profit organization and donations to this event are expected to be tax deductible (please speak to your tax professional to discuss your unique tax situation).
