The 2007 Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival, held on September 28-30, was the 9th in the annual series. For 2007, the Life & Liberty sidebar was added, and featured Civil and Human Rights related films, in partnership with the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. The second annual Taste of 4th Avenue Jazz Festival was held on Saturday September 29. In January, Catherine Pfitzer was named executive director of the festival, after founder Erik Jambor resigned. Pfitzer had been the festival's program manager since 2003.
