History

Birmingham SHOUT is Alabama’s first and only LGBTQ film festival and is proud to support the growing lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, and otherwise queer community in the Magic City, along with providing compelling content for anyone interested in independent films.
The Alabama Moving Image Association was created to inspire, encourage and support films and filmmaking in Alabama. And this is a milestone year; we’ll be celebrating the 14th year of the Sidewalk film festival and the growth of our special screening series.
The 8th Annual Birmingham SHOUT LGBTQ Film Festival shares festival dates and the festival footprint with Sidewalk on August 24th and 25th, 2013. SHOUT began in 2006 and showcases features, documentaries and short films by new and established artists and offers attendees the opportunity to view topics of interest to the LGBTQ communities, as well as to interact with filmmakers and documentary subjects in attendance.
