Advanced Circuitry: 20 Years of Festivals


Full Frame is one of the oldest and largest documentary-only festivals in the United States. Back when we started, there were far fewer nonfiction films and distribution streams than there are now, when there are so many of both. Using the festival as a frame, these esteemed documentary professionals look back at the business of utilizing the festival circuit to promote a film, and how it might work best in the future.

Panelists include: Amir Bar-Lev (Long Strange Trip, My Kid Could Paint That), Ryan Harrington (Discovery Communications), Matthew Heineman (City of Ghosts, Cartel Land), and Gary Hustwit (Helvetica, Objectified). Moderated by: Julie Goldman (Abacus: Small Enough to Jail, Weiner)
