Full Frame Unveils Dynamic New Website

Durham, N.C. – December 20, 2016 – The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival unveiled a dynamic new website this month, designed by Durham-based company DesignHammer.

“The new site is engaging, vibrant, and inviting, all qualities that define our annual festival,” said Full Frame Marketing Director Michelle Benham. “Listening to our audience enabled us to focus on ease of use and responsiveness on mobile devices, creating a vibrant site that best serves our audience, partners, and stakeholders.”

“I’m very excited about the launch of the redesigned Full Frame website,” said Frank Yonnetti, DesignHammer partner, designer, and front-end website developer, “We think their users will have a great experience during the 2017 festival when viewing the schedule, film, and event pages on their mobile device.”

“Full Frame is approaching its next decade with new ideas and new voices,” stated festival director Deirdre Haj. “Our virtual face to the world is our website and this site reflects who we are today, and where we are headed.”

DesignHammer has joined the festival as a sponsor at the Partner level, and will continue to collaborate on the website for the next three years.

The 20th annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival will be held April 6-9, 2017, in Durham, N.C., with Duke University as the presenting sponsor.
