Due to uncertainties surrounding travel in the new year, organizers say the 25th annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival will be a virtual event in 2022. Presented by the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, the Academy Award-qualifying event will run April 7 to 10.
Similar to 2021′s format, the festival will include feature and short film screenings, filmmaker Q&As and panel discussions. There will also be a juried awards program offering cash prizes of more than $40,000.
“Nothing can replace the magic of screening films together in a theater, yet we firmly believe the decision to stay online for one more year is the best choice for Full Frame at this time,” says Sadie Tillery, Full Frame’s artistic director and interim festival director. “The 2021 festival demonstrated that the Full Frame team can produce a meaningful virtual experience amid the constraints of this moment–one that matters to filmmakers, to audiences, and to us.”
Festival passes go on sale to the public in early March. For more info, please visit fullframefest.org.
