Full Frame Stanley Nelson

The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival (April 12-15) has chosen to highlight the career of Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker Stanley Nelson ("Freedom Riders," "A Place of Our Own") for its annual Full Frame Tribute.

In addition, the festival has announced that this year's Thematic Program -- curated by filmmaker Ross McElwee ("Bright Leaves") -- will focus on family.

Titles for both the Thematic Program and the Full Frame Tribute will be announced in March.
