What Is Made In The Magic City?

Made in The Magic City is comprised of a group of filmmakers with a love for Birmingham. Our goal is to showcase the movers and the shakers within the city through a short documentary series, broadcast once a month. We plan to feature artists, artisans, musicians, small business owners, or just everyday people that have a unique story to tell. Our hope is that the series will allow Birmingham to get to know its people better, and will also inspire individuals to leave their own positive mark on the city we all know and love- MiTMC
