The Full Frame Documentary

Eight-year old doc fest tallies audience awards both in hometown Durham, North Carolina and for Emerging Pictures' Audience Award from satellite cities

The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival ended Sunday, April 10 with record attendance and new award winners. While the bulk of the awards were given out at the traditional Sunday Awards Barbecue, the Full Frame/Emerging Pictures Audience Award had to be held off while votes were tallied in the 10 cities who participated in the satellite version of Full Frame's festival. Full Frame and Emerging Pictures expanded their groundbreaking initiative, begun in 2004, that uses digital technology to bring quality documentaries—the hallmark of Full Frame’s programming—to numerous locations around the country at the same time as those films are being exhibited in Durham, North Carolina. For the eighth annual festival, the number of participating venues doubled.

The Full Frame/Emerging Pictures Audience Award for 2005 went to The Education of Shelby Knox Directed and Produced by Marion Lipschutz and Rose Rosenblatt.

Also announced was the Full Frame Audience Award for the festival's hometown audience. Calculated by audience ballots filled out during the festival’s four-day run, this year’s Audience Award went to Murderball (Henry Alex Rubin and Dana Adam Shapiro).

The festival announced yesterday the winner of the Full Frame Grand Jury Award, which was a split between Murderball (Henry Alex Rubin and Dana Adam Shapiro) and Shape of the Moon (Leonard Retel Hemrich). Full Frame has also decided to announce those films that were the finalists for that prize. The Grand Jury Award is decided in two parts, with the first selection drawn from all the competing films by a jury consisting of co-chairs from the Full Frame selection committee and the programming department. The twelve winning films are then screened by a jury of distinguished filmmakers.
