Festival

The 19th annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival takes place April 7 – 10, 2016.

Each spring Full Frame welcomes filmmakers and film lovers from around the world to Durham, North Carolina for a four-day, morning to midnight doc fest of over 100 films, panel conversations, and southern hospitality.

The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival utilizes a number of downtown Durham locations for its annual event. Our venues include the historic Carolina Theatre, the Durham Arts Council, as well as the Durham Armory, Durham Convention Center, Durham Central Park, and the Full Frame Theater in the Power Plant at American Tobacco. Set within a four-block radius, our intimate festival landscape fosters community and conversation between filmmakers, film professionals and the public.
