Summer Exposure Film Fellowship Opportunity, Summer 2019
Now in its seventh year, Southern Exposure provides a positive and challenging learning experience to exceptional film students and emerging filmmakers from across the country seeking to explore and develop their own voices as environmental advocates through nonfiction storytelling. This innovative summer fellowship equips students with the skills, equipment, content knowledge and contacts to create authentic, engaging films intended to raise public awareness about important issues facing Alabama’s environment — from the mountains to the coast.
The selected film fellows will spend the summer working in partnership with Alabama Rivers Alliance’s partner groups and other state environmental organizations, who will provide guidance on film topics and crucial community contacts to help the fellows create the short documentaries that will be most useful for raising awareness and advocating for the protection of Alabama’s special places.
The 2018 class of films have already been accepted into several film festivals, including the national Wild & Scenic Film Festival, the largest environmental film festival in the country!
