Full Frame film fest kicks off Thursday

Full Frame Festival

— Documentary film makers and fans alike come together for the 19th annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival this weekend in Durham.

If you live in the area, chances are that you have at least heard of Full Frame. One long weekend, more than 100 documentaries, right in the heart of historic Durham.

Passes go on sale months in advance and typically sell out very quickly, but if you are looking to see what the fuss is about, you have another option: individual film tickets.

I’m kicking my weekend off with the Thursday night opening film, “Weiner." Who doesn’t love a good political scandal along with a hard lesson about why sexting ruins lives?

To finish out my weekend, I am seeing “Kate Plays Christine,” which is a new look on the classic story of news personality Christine Chubbuck and her life leading up to her on-air suicide.

Countless great films, lots of emotion captured, and most screenings have a filmmaker Q&A after the showing!

What are you looking forward to seeing the most? Give me some suggestions in the comments section. And look for my Full Frame recap next week.
