Durham, N.C., is enjoying an unusually busy week. On Monday night, Duke University’s men’s basketball team, the Blue Devils, will compete for an Ncaa National Championship against the Butler Bulldogs. Should Duke win, the Southern city likely will celebrate right up until Thursday, when the annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival picks up the torch and carries a wave of enthusiasm through the weekend.

Full Frame has become an essential springtime stop for documentary film lovers and celebrants of all things cinema.
