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.

Documentary Feature [clear filter]
Saturday, August 23


Makin' Wookiee presented locally by Masco Fabrics
Limited Capacity seats available

MAKIN' WOOKIEE is a comedic, slice of life documentary filmed in Orange County, California. In the film we follow a group of aspiring adolescent actors as they perform a musical parody of STAR WARS. Our story is really about that moment in every tween's life when you have no idea who you are, what you're doing and everything is awkward. Now add a dash of singing, unrequited crushes and repeat. The film is shot in a traditional, nonfiction follow style, with interviews from the characters and ends with a live stage performance.
