Want MORE of the documentary filmmakers you love at Full Frame?  Traveling to festivals is expensive for many of our filmmakers; here at Full Frame, we are proud to assist them with the cost of traveling to Durham. We are asking YOU to help us raise $15,000 for our Filmmaker Hospitality Fund by June 30, so that we can extend our hospitality to even more filmmakers in 2015.

As a big THANK YOU for helping to take care of our filmmakers, you’ll get awesome Full Frame swag gifts from us! Swag gifts range from caps and t-shirts to private parties and Durham Bulls Box Seats.  We’re also offering free trial memberships to Fandor, an online film-streaming service for indie, art-house, and festival films—including Full Frame favorites. Gifts can be made at any level.

Fund and available swag!

We are grateful to you for being the best hosts in the festival world. We hope you give to our 2015 Filmmaker Hospitality Fund today, and we thank you for treating our filmmakers like family!

Join us for TWO free screenings this month!

This month Triangle documentary lovers will have TWO opportunities to see 2013 Full Frame fan favorite MUSCLE SHOALS: Friday, June 20, at the Full Frame Theater as part of downtown Durham’s Third Friday (ticket required), and Friday, June 27, at outdoor City Plaza in Raleigh as part of PNC’s Downtown Raleigh Movie Series. Both screenings are free and are part of The Full Frame Road Show presented by PNC.

MUSCLE SHOALS (111 minutes) Directed by Greg “Freddy” Camalier Friday, June 20, 2014, at the Full Frame Theater, 7:30pm (doors at 7:00pm, ticket required) Friday, June 27, 2014, at City Plaza in downtown Raleigh; 5:00pm food trucks, film starts at sundown MUSCLE SHOALS is an exhilarating film that tells the story of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and its colorful, memorable music scene. Muscle Shoals is the home of FAME Studios and its indefatigable founder, Rick Hall, as well as an endless list of classic recordings by artists ranging from Otis Redding to Bob Dylan to the Black Keys.  How and why history was made here is illuminated by the hit-making producers, the remarkable and unpredictable session musicians known as the Swampers, and an array of musical luminaries such as Bono, Keith Richards, and Aretha Franklin. Ambitious in scope and style, the film traces the myriad obstacles and prejudices facing Hall and artists alike as the label evolves from striving to thriving and back again.
