Stories are at the heart of the Southern Documentary Fund.
SDF is a trusted partner for veteran, emerging, and first-time documentary producers across our region, helping them direct their lenses and microphones at powerful Southern stories and critical issues.
The Southern Documentary Fund supports documentary films made in or about North Carolina through our annual filmmaking grants. These grants are made possible thanks to generous support from The Mary Duke Biddle Foundation.
Reel South is a public television showcase for documentaries about the American South, a co-production of SDF, UNC-TV, and SCETV.
