2020 Festival and COVID-19 Updates



    March 11, 2020

    Dear Friends of Full Frame:

    Yesterday, Duke University canceled all sponsored events through April 20, 2020, which includes this year’s Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. At this time, we are in the process of notifying filmmakers, sponsors, donors, ticket buyers, and all of our stakeholders. 

    We humbly ask for patience as our team works through the many details involved with canceling an event of Full Frame’s scale. Updates will be posted here on our website as more information becomes available.

    We are deeply grateful for the understanding of our incredible Full Frame community, along with the continued support from Duke University. Know that we remain committed to our mission of celebrating and enhancing the documentary art form and now look ahead to next year’s festival, running April 8­-11, 2021.

    Our hearts go out to all of the people and communities impacted by COVID-19.


    The Full Frame Team
