The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, in Durham NC is a kind of documentary heaven for those of us who want to spend sunny spring days inside a darkened theater from morning till night. The event usually hosts over 100 films and filmmakers, giving viewers their first chance to see next year's most talked about new doc films that are making the festival rounds. That's where I first saw some of my favorite documentary films including The Queen of Versailles, Detropia, Chasing Ice and others. As if that weren't enough, there are usually panel discussions with filmmakers after each screening and open discussions with industry folks who wrestle with questions like ethics in documentary film making or the shifting sands of distribution rights. Plus this is a festival that shows older films via theme and guest curator slots- so there is a chance to see important older doc films that might not be available otherwise. And did I mention that it is just plain fun? It's coming up soon- April 10th- so grab some popcorn and go!
