Getting bored of the same weekend activities? Bored of watching Netflix in your bed? Want the chance to be able to attend a world famous documentary film festival without even having to leave Durham? The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival is an annual film festival in that shows over 100 films and hosts discussions over four days. This year, the festival takes place from April 3rd to April 6th in Downtown Durham.
The New York Times describes Full Frame as a festival with “a sustained, concentrated exposure to the sheer emotional power of documentary filmmaking, its ability to communicate the drama embedded in human experience. In Durham, you can walk into the stately dark of the Carolina Theatre and lose yourself in real life”. Many films are premiering for the first time at this film festival, and many film makers will also be attending the festival as well as participating and hosting events.
Tickets from invidual films cost $15, but select ones are $13 with a Duke ID. There are a number of free outdoor screenings as well. Check out the schedule here for a great chance to experience a unique opportunity.
