Reel South Season 5

Monday, July 15, 2019

Reel South is now accepting submissions for Season 5 of its broadcast series, airing nationally on PBS stations.

REEL SOUTH films focus on the people, issues, and culture of our region. The films must highlight a Southern story in all its possibilities. The series seeks films that cover a broad range of topics and filmmaking styles: from public affairs or social issues, to more personal or experimental works. Particular topics of interest include social justice, the economy, the environment, civil rights, history, as well as arts and culture. In terms of style and format, narrated and non-narrated films are considered along with first person or point of view projects, observational films, and news documentaries.
Submit your half-hour or feature-length films via Submittable.

Quick Facts:

Non-fiction films only. Fiction/Narrative films will not be considered.
Film run times must meet PBS standard 24 minutes (half-hour) or 55 minutes (hour). Films over those run-times will be edited to time.
Films must take place in or cover a topic concerning the American South, broadly.
Deadline to submit is mid-July. Final review by the Reel South editorial panel will take place in August.
