Evidence Regarding The Exodus
Popular Christian tradition since the 4th century has placed the Red Sea crossing someplace along the border of Egypt (near the modern Suez Canal).  It has also placed Mount Sinai in the mountains of the southern Sinai Peninsula.  However, "popular" does not mean "universal", nor does it mean "accurate".

An increasing body of both scholars and evidence now place the Red Sea crossing somewhere along the Gulf of Aqaba (on the east side of the Sinai Peninsula).  Many of these scholars also see the most likely location for Mount Sinai as being the tallest peak of Jabal Al Lawz, a mountain in what was then the land of Midian and what is now northwestern Saudi Arabia.  The mountain is some 30 miles east of the middle of the Gulf of Aqaba.

The Exodus Revealed is an 85-minute 2001 film that documents some of that research.
It features Dr. Lennart Moller and Viveka PontÚn, both of Sweden.  They believe Moses crossed the Red Sea at Nuweiba (about 2/3 of the way from the mouth of the Gulf of Aqaba to it's head at Eilat), the shallowest part of the gulf.
     The Exodus Case (2015, 29 min) and The Exodus Case (book) Interview (2013, 2 hrs) also feature Dr. Moller.
     The Exodus of the Children of Israel (2012, 14 min) and Journey to the real Mt Sinai (2014, 24 min) also feature Ms. PontÚn.

Base Institute (Bob Cornuke)
Bob Cornuke, founder of Base Institute, traveled through the Sinai Peninsula and northwestern Arabia in 1997 looking for evidence of the Exodus.  His studies also brought him to Jabal Al Lawz, but by a different route.  He believes Moses crossed the Red Sea at the mouth of the Gulf of Aqaba, and then followed a route where Cornuke also believes he has located the "Bitter Springs of Marah" (Exodus 15:23) and the oasis of Elim (Exodus 15:27).

Patterns Of Evidence: Exodus (Timothy Mahoney)
Mahoney spent 12 years researching the evidence for and against the Exodus, culminating in a 2015 2-hour documentary film and a book of the same name.  I have not seen either one yet, but he discusses the project in an 8-minute interview here.
