SOUTHERN EXPOSURE is a film series 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.
