Message from our Interim Director, Jenny Slattery:
“I could not be more thrilled to join the Southern Documentary Fund. I am deeply inspired by SDF’s commitment to Southern storytelling and by the powerful projects the organization supports. I have such admiration for documentary filmmakers and the passion and energy they pour into every aspect of the filmmaking process to capture the worlds, questions, and issues they have immersed themselves in. It’s an honor to work alongside this talented staff and board to elevate these stories and provide artists with opportunities to build more sustainable careers and bring their projects to life.”
