Joe Berlinger to Curate Thematic Program Around True Crime, Jehane Noujaim Honored with Full Frame Tribute

Full Frame is proud to announce that renowned filmmaker Joe Berlinger will curate the 2018 Thematic Program, and the festival will honor Jehane Noujaim’s illustrious body of work with the 2018 Tribute. Delving into the fascinating genre of true crime, the Thematic Program will feature films that follow individual cases and consider the ways documentary uniquely represents the complexities, and limitations, of the American judicial system. For the Tribute, Full Frame will showcase Noujaim’s lauded films exploring themes of resilience, freedom, democracy, and free speech.

Academy Award®-nominated filmmakers Berlinger and Noujaim will both be in attendance at the 21st annual festival, April 5-8 in Durham, North Carolina. Specific titles for the Thematic and Tribute programs, along with additional attending guests, will be announced in early March with the full lineup of titles, including films in competition and other selected work. Festival passes are available online beginning this Wednesday, February 14 at 11 am.
