The 21st annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival is April 5-8, bringing both national and international filmmakers, producers, writers, and film lovers to the heart of Downtown Durham. The four-day festival offers indoor and outdoor screenings of nearly 100 films, panel discussions, parties, and social activities from morning until night. A major draw of the festival is its commitment to encouraging a safe and open forum for unfiltered conversation, and there’s no doubt that the role of women in the film industry is sure to be a topic of discussion.
