The Triangle Indie Film Meetup Group Message Board › Important Information about Full Frame
Chapel Hill, NC
You can't tell from the schedule, but there are formal panel discussions after each of the CenterFrame showings. You need to go to www.fullframefest.org/press/announcements to get information. There are also more informal Q & As after each of the films in the New Docs category, but these are not announced until the Festival opens, because the organizers aren't sure who will be present at the time of the screening until very late. All of this in response to a voicemail I left for the Festival's Programming Director.
So here's the information on Center Frame and its panels --
2013 Center Frame Screenings @ Carolina Theatre’s Fletcher Hall
CENTER FRAME – Friday, April 5 @ 5:00pm
Fight Like Soldiers, Die Like Children (Director: Patrick Reed)

CENTER FRAME – Saturday, April 6 @ 1:50pm
Manhunt (Director: Greg Barker)
This spellbinding film dissects the painstaking search for Osama bin Laden, which originated with the “Sisterhood,” a remarkable team of CIA analysts.

Subjects from the films will participate in extended conversations with the filmmakers after each Center Frame screening. The following special guests and newsmakers will all be in attendance: Emily Pilloton and Matthew Miller, the designers from “If You Build It,” Lieutenant-General Roméo Dallaire featured in “Fight Like Soldiers, Die Like Children,” and Cindy Storer and Susan Hasler from “Manhunt,” members of the original CIA ‘Sisterhood’ involved in tracking Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda.
Tickets to each screening are $15.00 a piece, but even if you are belt-tightening, there are possibilities:
Full Frame 2013 will feature 5 Free Screenings. The festival will continue its tradition of showcasing films outdoors in Durham Central Park on Friday and Saturday night. Two award winners from last year’s festival will each screen twice, once indoors and once outside: 2012 Full Frame Audience Award Winner “Trash Dance” and “Chasing Ice,” which received the Nicholas School Environmental Award.
