From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival is one of the United States' premier documentary film festivals, held over the course of four days each spring at the Carolina Theater in Durham, North Carolina. It began in 1998 with no more than a few hundred patrons and has grown tremendously since then.
The festival is renowned for its presentation of both new and curated documentaries as well as panel discussions, seminars, and question and answer sessions, along with the support it has garnered from filmmakers, film industry executives, and the general public. Produced by the non-profit organization Doc Arts, Inc., the festival is funded by private sponsors, some corporate. A few examples of sponsors include The New York Times (which left in 2009),Duke University, A&E, HBO, and the city of Durham.
Full Frame has reached national recognition not just from its impressive programming but also the presence of numerous filmmaking celebrities. Over the years, those attending have included Morgan Spurlock, Michael Moore, DA Pennebaker, Martin Scorsese, Danny DeVito, Ken Burns, Joan Allen, Mira Nair, Al Franken, Sydney Pollack and many others.
The festival receives over 1,000 new films for consideration, the most of any documentary awards festival in the United States. In 2007 alone, the 10th anniversary of the festival, Full Frame received over 2,100 submissions, of which a select 85 were chosen.
