American Promise is Coming...
Winner at the
More than 100 documentary films were screened at this year's Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, including 37 feature films and 15 shorts in competition, that were selected from more than 1,200 total submissions. Films from 16 different countries were exhibited, underlining the international profile of the Triangle's signature film event.
The festival's top prize - the Reva and David Logan Grand Jury Award for feature-length documentary - went to the film "American Promise," which follows two African-American boys from kindergarten through high school at New York's prestigious Dalton School.
Co-directors Michele Stephenson and Joe Brewster, parents of one of the two boys featured in the film, shot footage during the course of 13 years to complete the project. "The one thing we want to promote is family," Brewster said. "And what we felt when we came here [to the festival] is that this is a family."
