Full Frame depends on your generosity.

Each spring, for four days, we welcome the international documentary community to Durham, North Carolina. And all year long, at no cost, we give back – to documentary filmmakers, students, educators, our local economy, and you – by hosting free screenings, offering innovative education programs, and facilitating dialogue. 

We need your help to grow and sustain our impact by making a tax-deductible gift or becoming a member. One-time, monthly, and quarterly donations of any amount can be made online through our secure site. 



For less than a latte, a Spotlight membership presents attractive benefits like advance ticket sales and access to passes before the general public. Interested in concierge service at the festival, exclusive parties, and priority seating? Join First Team.
