In celebration of Olivia Newton-John, Sidewalk will present Robert Greenwald’s cult-musical classic Xanadu (1980) Featuring the music of ELO and co-starring Gene Kelly, the film’s synopsis would tell you it’s about a struggling artist living in Los Angeles meeting a girl who may hold the key to his happiness, but we all know it’s a secret documentary about the fact that for a magical time, Olivia Newton John made everything better for everyone – even on roller skates.

Exemplifying the special curatorial events that make Sidewalk a singular film festival experience include the following presentations: Daniel Fox’s documentary Etowah looks at the wild, incredible life of Duquette Johnston that took him from the spotlight with breakout 90’s indie band Verbena all the way down to the Etowah County Correctional Facility and then back to Birmingham, opening a clothing store in Woodlawn and releasing a critically acclaimed new record. The screening will be followed by a Q&A and special live perfomance by Duquette Johnston. Jason Kohn’s documentary Manda Bala (Send A Bullet) (2007) is a film that is incredibly difficult to find, let alone see it on the big screen. The Grand Jury Prize: Documentary winner at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival is an examination of corruption and class warfare in Brazil as told through the stories of a wealthy businessman, a plastic surgeon who assists kidnapping victims and a politician whose income relies on a frog farm.

Finally, the “only at Sidewalk” award could easily go to the Double Feature presentation of Jay Burleson’s The Third Saturday In October and The Third Saturday in October Part V. In the first film, Ricky Dean Logan is a man on a mission. Years ago, he lost a child at the hands of a spree killer, and as that killer escapes Death Row, Ricky Dean throws himself in the line of fire to stop him from killing again as the killer preys upon a group of friends gathered to watch a college football game. In Part V an unstoppable killer stalks and butchers the occupants of multiple homes across the stretch of one lone country road as the residents prepare to watch the yearly college football bout between the Alabama-Mobile Seahawks and Tennessee A&M Commonwealth. The films are unabashed love letters to the slashers of the 80’s, and Burelson will be on hand to talk about his vision
