BIRMINGHAM, AL — The 22nd Annual Sidewalk Film Festival is actually going to happen this year amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but the world-renown festival will have a different look and feel, to say the least.
Birmingham’s annual film festival historically held in the downtown Theatre District will transition to the outdoor location of The Grand River Drive-In at The Backyard in Leeds. The 2020 event transition will provide this year’s attendees with a safe option to view the more than 150 features and short films set to screen during the Aug. 24-30 festival.
The Sidewalk Festival at the Drive-In will screen films each evening on all four screens with some nights offering second films on each screen. Gates will tentatively open each day at 6:30 p.m. with the start of the first films of the night scheduled for 8 p.m. daily. Concessions and bar service will be provided by The Grand River Drive-In.
