Appalshop started as a film workshop in 1969, and 50 years later we're still making films about Appalachia. We also operate a radio station, a theater, a public art gallery, a record label, a professional archive, a filmmaking institute, and a community development program — all aimed at documenting and revitalizing the traditions and creativity of the people of these mountains. We tell stories that commercial industries don’t tell. We challenge stereotypes with Appalachian voices. And we do it all with artists who are from and committed to this region. Stream one of our films, come take in a live performance, or tune into our radio station from anywhere in the world.
