Among the many films we have an eye on: The Jazz Loft According to W. Eugene Smith, the first film to make use of the astonishing archive of photographs and audiotapes of W. Eugene Smith, who from 1957 to 1965 obsessively documented the jazz musicians who stopped by for all-night jam sessions at his Manhattan loft. The Smith materials were first cataloged, archived, curated, and edited during a decade-long initiative based here at the Center for Documentary Studies—the Jazz Loft Project—which resulted in a celebrated book, radio series, exhibition, and website. The archive is now housed at the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona, a partner in the project.

The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival is a program of the Center for Documentary Studies.
