Full Frame Honored as Worldwide Top 25 Coolest Film Festival

MovieMaker Magazine’s 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World

The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, a program of the Center for Documentary Studies, has been named one of the 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World by MovieMaker Magazine. The top festivals are selected annually by a panel of seven judges who consider such qualities as uniformly excellent cinema, thoughtful panels and educational opportunities, willingness to experiment, and depth of involvement and engagement in the festival’s home city. See all of the 25 Coolest Film Festivals and judging criteria here.

With a board that includes Martin Scorsese, Ken Burns, and Barbara Kopple, Full Frame is an Academy-qualifying four-day affair with round-the-clock panels, discussions, and screenings of over 100 films. “Nicely complemented by refreshing spring weather and the area’s boom in great restaurants,” one panelist puts it, the festival’s “superbly curated line-up” is “matched to smart and appreciative audiences.” Off-season, Full Frame runs an educational doc-making summer camp and a doc-screening roadshow—both entirely free! —MovieMaker Magazine

NOTE: December 15, 2014, is Full Frame’s Late Deadline for the 2015 festival, which will be held April 9–12 in Durham, North Carolina. Film submissions will be considered for both the NEW DOCS and Invited Program categories. For application instructions and more information, click here.
