What types of films are shown at Wild & Scenic Film Festival?
Is this the same as Southern Exposure Films?
No, though we understand the confusion! The Southern Exposure films are produced by Alabama Rivers Alliance each summer and have their own separate screenings across Alabama. The Southern Exposure films DO screen as part of the national Wild and Scenic Film Festival too, but they are separate events. To put a finer point on it: The Wild & Scenic Film Festival features films from all across the globe and the Southern Exposure films are created in Alabama. Let us know if you have any questions!

|Taxing the Sun||Why are our neighboring states so far ahead of Alabama when it comes to renewable energy?

A few simple policy changes could remove existing barriers and voilà! Alabamians could have more options when it comes to where their electricity comes from. It’s time to stop taxing the sun and fight for Energy Freedom!|
