Single Frame is a showcase of experimental documentary shorts in Durham, North Carolina. Submit to our 2025 event!

Situated around Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, Single Frame aims to shed light on non-traditional documentaries in a time when big-budget industry docs are hitting the Durham scene. We cherish documentaries that respect the art form of filmmaking equal to the topic discussed. We respect documentaries created by a small crew of people with huge vision. We love documentaries that challenge our perception of reality by presenting a new way to see the world.

Depending on the total length of official selections, we plan on programming two to three screenings (about one hour each). Max runtime is 20 minutes.

Presented by UNEXPOSED, a roaming microcinema facilitating the growth of experimental and avant-garde film in Durham, NC.

    This is a great event. Free films, free beer, and free food and of course, great audience.

  • Low entry fee and great communication... two things I appreciate in screening opportunities. I look forward to sharing my work again.
