31 National and Regional Sponsors Bolster the Success of the 24th Annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival
Durham, NC – Tuesday, June 1, 2021 – Full Frame is proud to recognize the generous contributions of the 31 regional and national sponsors of the 24th Annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, which takes place virtually June 2-6, 2021.
“We’re humbled and grateful for the enormous amount of support we’ve received from our partners, both nationally and right here in our own vibrant community of Durham,” says Leesa Moore, Full Frame’s Development Manager. “Because of them, we have been able to innovate our programs over this challenging year to expand education initiatives globally, present vital industry discussions, and shift the annual festival into a dynamic virtual event.”
Notably, many of Full Frame’s operations and programs received direct support from major grant funders, including the National Endowment for the Arts, Durham Arts Council, The City of Durham, North Carolina Arts Council, and The Mary Duke Biddle Foundation.
Through a newly established partnership with Roku, Full Frame launched the monthly giving program Fans of Full Frame. For as little as $10 per month, audience members can become a “Fan” of the organization, with the first 100 sign-ups receiving a Roku Express device.
In addition to films, the festival will feature a series of free Filmmaker Q&As, presented by SHOWTIME® Documentary Films. Tickets to virtual screenings are on sale now at store.fullframefest.org.
