2517 - The Road To Full Frame: A "Behind the Screens" Journey to the 2018 Documentary Film Festival
Each spring, Durham is home to the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, screening nearly 100 films in four days. This course will provide a “behind the scenes” view of the festival: sessions designed to prepare you to either attend the festival or just enjoy more fully the documentaries you’re already watching. We’ll begin with the most basic question: what is a documentary? We’ll then explore the unique documentary ecosystem that Durham provides, including Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies (the festival’s producer) and the Southern Documentary Fund (a local nonprofit that supports filmmakers). As the festival approaches, you’ll learn about the actual films and programs to be featured, but along the way, you’ll have opportunities to attend free screenings of previous festival favorites and to participate in conversations with filmmakers about their works-in-progress. We’ll see short films and excerpts in class. Optional free evening screenings will be held at various venues. Lecture (plus Questions) Facilitated Discussion Viewing Videos Field Trip(s)
