Two Durham filmmakers are currently producing a documentary called Overland. The documentary explores the modern state of falconry and traces the spread of the 6,000- year-old tradition, with filming taking place all over the world.
Originally from Florida, Brendan and Jeremy Smyth came to Durham in 2013 under the impression that the city had a thriving experimental film community. When they arrived, they realized they were mistaken, but took advantage of the situation and started their microcinema, calling it Unexposed. Their series has changed the local and national state of contemporary experimental film and now the brothers hope to make their art form accessible to all.
The Southern Documentary Fund of Durham encourages documentary media projects made within or about the American South. The group serves to help fundraising to support documentary projects and is celebrating its five year anniversary. The group is looking to expand by creating a network for documentary artists to access production resources and distribute their films. Also in the article on film are updates of the Full Frame Documentary Festival and the death of actor Heath Ledger.
The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival was founded in 1998 by documentary filmmaker, Nancy Buirski. The four-day festival takes place at the Carolina Theatre in Durham, and features films from local and international filmmakers.
