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.
On March 8 (also known as International Women’s Day), the Full Frame team released this year’s film listing to the public, featuring more than 25 films exclusively directed by women. As you plan your film screenings, consider reserving a seat for these eight female-directed films.
