About Reel South

The Carolinas’ two statewide public television networks, UNC-TV and SCETV, have partnered with the Southern Documentary Fund (SDF) to create an exciting showcase for independently produced documentary films about the American South.

Reel South brought six films in the pilot season to a national television audience hungry for authentic stories from a frequently misunderstood corner of America. Distributed through the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA), the series is reaching every corner of the country.

The co-producing partners are eager to build on this momentum to produce a more robust Reel South season two with 13 new films.
