Course Description

The 22nd annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival will be held April 4-7, 2019, in downtown Durham. This course provides a “behind the screens” view of the festival: the sessions are designed to prepare you to attend the festival (if you so choose) or just to 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 films and programs to be featured, but you’ll also have opportunities to attend free screenings of previous festival favorites and participate in conversations with documentarians, teachers, and festival organizers. We’ll also see short films and excerpts in class.Lecture (plus Questions)Facilitated Discussion Listening to Music or Other AudioViewing Videos
