We’re celebrating our 20th anniversary this April!

Thanks to YOU, our loyal fans and supporters, we reached our $20,000 goal! Your support will help us build the best festival yet as we celebrate our 20th anniversary of bringing incredible documentary film to Durham. Thank you for helping us reach #20for20!


Full Frame showcases the most impactful documentary films, facilitates crucial dialogue, and creates a space for making profound connections across differences. We drive economic growth for our local community, educate young people and teachers, and provide the Triangle with free programming all year long. April in Durham is about sharing the human experience that unites us all.
