The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival has announced its full list of Full Frame Tribute and Thematic Program films for the 2014 festival, April 3–6 in Durham, North Carolina.

Full Frame is proud to screen a collection of Tribute honoree Steve James‘s films over the course of the festival. Some of James’s subjects featured in these works will be joining James for Q&A sessions; Arthur Agee, Jr. (Hoop Dreams), Ameena Matthews (The Interrupters), and Reverend Carroll Pickett (At the Death House Door) are expected to attend, along with many of James’s collaborators from Kartemquin Films. Full Frame will also feature “Hoop Dreams at 20,” a panel conversation in celebration of the landmark documentary’s 20th anniversary that will feature outtakes, insider commentary, and special guests.

The Thematic Program, “Approaches to Character,” curated by filmmaker Lucy Walker (Waste Land, The Crash Reel), reveals a series of memorable subjects through a diverse array of filmmaking techniques. The lineup features titles from many accomplished filmmakers, including Werner Herzog, Shirley Clarke, and Joe Berlinger, as well as three of Walker’s own films. “Showing older works alongside brand new films gets right to the core of my vision for Full Frame,” says director of programming Sadie Tillery, “I want this lineup to start conversation, spark connections, and make filmgoers really think about the form.”
