The Producers

While the Southern Foodways Alliance has produced over thirty documentary shorts, PRIDE & JOY will be the first feature length documentary we have produced. But what the heck is the Southern Foodways Alliance? You can learn all about the organization by clicking here to visit our website. Or continue reading for an overview of the SFA’s mission and vision.

SFA Mission

The Southern Foodways Alliance documents, studies, and celebrates the diverse food cultures of the changing American South. We set a common table where black and white, rich and poor — all who gather — may consider our history and our future in a spirit of reconciliation.

A member-supported non-profit, based at the University of Mississippi, we stage symposia on food culture, produce documentary films, collect oral histories, and publish compendiums of great writing. In the Atlantic Monthly, Corby Kummer dubbed the SFA “this country’s most intellectually engaged (and probably most engaging) food society.”

All of the Southern Foodways Alliance’s film projects are co-produced with the University of Mississippi’s Media & Documentary Projects Center.

The University of Mississippi’s Media and Documentary Projects Center enhances the academic mission of the university. Filming campus events, producing short and feature length documentaries, creating Ole Miss institutional materials, running OMTV (the university public access channel), and producing radio shows such as “Highway 61″ and “Sounds of the South” allows Media and Documentary Projects to provide hands on experience to students at the University of Mississippi.
