Sidewalk Festival helps film fans love our community

September 15, 2009

Today, George Hardy is a dentist in Alexander City. But next week he will be enjoying a bit of retro-stardom, thanks to his role in the cult movie “Troll 2.”

Hardy’s fame was unexpected, when YouTube fueled a revival of interest in the old movie. One result of that is “Best Worst Movie,” the film that opens the Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival on Friday, September 25, in our wonderful Alabama Theatre.

That same festival brings fame to our community too, along with millions of dollars and thousands of visitors over its 11 years as a part of what makes Birmingham special. People know us across the world as a center for independent film, thanks to Sidewalk and its amazing staff and volunteers.

If you haven’t gotten your ticket yet to see one of 170 independent films next week, click here to link to the Sidewalk site for a complete list of what’s showing and when. Or click here to read the full story about why Sidewalk is one of 50 ways we love our community.
