Meet the 2015 Southern Exposure Fellows

Six finalists from around the country will be heading to Birmingham this summer for SELC’s 2015 Southern Exposure film fellowship program.

Now in its fourth year, this unique summer program gives up-and-coming documentary filmmakers the opportunity to make compelling films about Alabama’s environment and the triumphs and challenges of those working to protect its beauty. The films span a variety of topics and pressing issues in Alabama. Previous years projects have covered the environmental and agricultural damage caused by feral hogs, sewage infrastructure problems, and natural solutions being used to preserve and protect Alabama's coastal ecosystems from erosion. Out of the many talented filmmakers who applied, SELC and Southern Exposure’s Program Director Katherine Gorringe are pleased to welcome this year’s fellows.

Meet the 2015 fellows and learn more about Southern Exposure here.
