Recognized as one of the premier nonfiction-cinema events in the world, the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival goes well beyond an annual four days in April. Year-round programming emphasizing community involvement includes local high school students who attend Full Frame’s School of Doc. The free five-week summer camp is open to Durham public school students in grades 9–12, who learn all aspects of filmmaking from professionals in the field as they produce an original short documentary of their own.

So enjoy SEEDS: The Documentary, produced by students in the 2015 School of Doc; their film celebrates a Durham nonprofit of the same name that promotes sustainable agriculture, food justice, and environmental stewardship through garden-based programs. And watch it again when it screens at the 2016 Full Frame Documentary Festival.

The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival is a program of the Center for Documentary Studies. The 2015 School of Doc was made possible with generous support from the Baskerville Fund at the Triangle Community Foundation, the Fenhagen Family and Helen’s Fund, and the Mary Duke Biddle Foundation.
