The Full Sensory Experience of Durham: A Moogfest Guide

Posted by Discover Durham Staff on Apr 27, 2018 3:42:44 PM

Moogfest is about the feeling.

Not just the ‘good vibes,' music kind of feeling. We’re talking about the feeling – the tingling in your fingertips, rhythm through the pavement beneath you, can’t-stop-shaking-my-head-because-this-beat-is-so-good kind of feeling. There’s another sentiment that permeates the air when Moogfest comes to town this April 25-28 — anticipation. It’s the eager expectation that what you’re about to see hasn’t been seen before. This gathering of innovative sights and sounds is actually a piece of history being synthesized right before your eyes … and you are in Durham for it.

We’re here to show you that the meeting of musical minds will be unforgettable, but the sensory opportunities around you will be too.

Celebrate Women in Film at this Year’s Full Frame Film Festival

Posted by Shayla Martin on Mar 27, 2018 4:02:40 PM

The 21st annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival is April 5-8, bringing both national and international filmmakers, producers, writers, and film lovers to the heart of Downtown Durham. The four-day festival offers indoor and outdoor screenings of nearly 100 films, panel discussions, parties, and social activities from morning until night. A major draw of the festival is its commitment to encouraging a safe and open forum for unfiltered conversation, and there’s no doubt that the role of women in the film industry is sure to be a topic of discussion.

On March 8 (also known as International Women’s Day), the Full Frame team released this year’s film listing to the public, featuring more than 25 films exclusively directed by women. As you plan your film screenings, consider reserving a seat for these eight female-directed films.
