The American South – its history, people, culture, and landscape are infused with a sense of heritage like no place else in the country – or the world.

Introducing REEL SOUTH, a new anthology series that highlights the masterful, provocative Southern tradition of storytelling, exploring the alluring and complicated region and its diverse voices and points of view.

A collaboration between UNC-TV, and SCETV , and the Southern Documentary Fund (SDF), REEL SOUTH includes half-hour and hour-long independent, documentary films about the American South. The six acclaimed films of the pilot season (2×60, 4×30) have recently premiered at film festivals and theaters, building buzz and audiences. REEL SOUTH now brings these films to a national audience hungry for authentic stories from one of the most unique corners of America.
