    Durham, NC ­­– Wednesday, April 6, 2022 – Full Frame is proud to recognize the generous contributions of the 24 regional and national sponsors of the 25th annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, which takes place virtually this week, April 7–10, 2022.

    “Especially during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the generous support from all of our sponsors provides Full Frame with resources to support artists and produce impactful programs at a time when it is most meaningful to our communities,” said Full Frame artistic director and interim associate festival director Sadie Tillery. “We want to also recognize the foundation of support we receive from right here in the Triangle’s growing and vibrant community, and we look forward to bringing in-person programming back to Durham later this summer.”

    As announced last month, Full Frame plans to host three outdoor screenings in Durham Central Park in August 2022.

    Notably, many of Full Frame’s operations and programs received direct support from major grant funders, including the National Endowment for the Arts, the City of Durham, and the North Carolina Arts Council.

    In addition to films, the festival will feature a series of free Filmmaker Q&As, presented by Showtime, for the second year in a row.
