Twenty-four undergraduates from a wide range of majors at Duke will serve as fellows at the 26th annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, which takes place from Thursday, April 4 through Sunday, April 7 in downtown Durham.

The Full Frame Fellows Program is aimed at educating, motivating and nurturing students. Along with screening films, fellows have the opportunity to network with filmmakers and seek advice that can apply to their own careers.

These students will receive tickets to the opening night film and party, selected film screenings and the awards barbecue, as well as two exclusive lunch sessions and Last Minute Line access to additional screenings.
