Alabama: Southern Exposure

SOUTHERN EXPOSURE is a film fellowship program that is actively raising awareness about Alabama's incredible natural resources and important environmental issues that impact all of us.

When it comes to natural landscapes, Alabama has it all: Southern Appalachian forests, world-class rivers, ancient cypress swamps, white sandy beaches, and much more. Alabama's incredible geographic variety and natural resources supports a stunning array of species - some found nowhere else on Earth.

Now in its fourth year, this innovative summer fellowship brings emerging filmmakers from across the country to tell authentic, engaging stories about Alabama's environment and the people who cherish it, from the mountains to the coast.

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.
