SOUTHERN EXPOSURE is a film fellowship program sponsored by the Alabama Rivers Alliance that is actively raising awareness about Alabama’s incredible natural resources and important environmental issues that impact all of us. This innovative summer fellowship brings emerging filmmakers from across the country to tell authentic, engaging stories through short documentary films about Alabama’s environment — and the people who cherish it — from the mountains to the coast. Along with communities and partner groups, Alabama Rivers Alliance shows these films to effect positive environmental progress in Alabama.
The short films are:
THE ACCIDENTAL ENVIRONMENTALIST: CATHERINE FLOWERS
ASHES TO ASHES
IF THEY BUILD IT, WHAT WILL COME?
WATER: PLAN ON IT
WHO’S YOUR FARMER?
Alabama House Bill 476: The Water Conservation and Security Act was introduced by Rep. Neil Rafferty (D-Birmingham). The bill would improve Alabama’s water management system to better protect our rivers and streams, preserving our drinking water and quality of life. It would also give the state authority to manage water use during droughts. The bill has been assigned to the House State Government Committee.
