Full Frame Documentary Film Festival

The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, a program of the Center for Documentary Studies, is one of the world’s premiere showcases for nonfiction cinema. Renowned for its film curation, support for artists, and vibrant atmosphere, Full Frame draws an international mix of 10,000-plus attendees to Durham every spring. Over four days, the Academy Award®–qualifying festival screens close to a hundred films, hosts panels and parties, and fosters community among filmmakers, industry professionals, and audience members.

The 25th annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival will be presented entirely online April 7–10, 2022. Similar to the 2021 format, Full Frame is planning a dynamic festival that will include feature and short film screenings, filmmaker Q&As, and panel discussions. In addition, there will be a juried awards program offering cash prizes totaling more than $40,000. Visit the Full Frame website for more information.
