The Birmingham Film Council was a film-appreciation group founded by Earl Sechriest. The group became inactive in the mid 1940s and was reconstituted in 1948 with the help of Mountain Brook mayor Charles Zukoski and librarian Mrs. E. M. Danton.

The group sponsored film screening with educational themes. Its first program in 1948 included two films on the topic of atomic energy1 and was held in concert with an informational exhibit from Life magazine, recommendations for further reading, and discussions led by experts from the University of Alabama.
