The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival announced it will open on Thursday, April 14 with the U.S. premiere of Julie Moggan's documentary "Guilty Pleasures."

"Guilty Pleasures" chronicles the impact of Mills & Boon romance novels upon the lives of five individuals, including a novelist, a male model and three female readers. Moggan, known for her non-fiction work for the BBC and Channel 4, will be on hand at Carolina Theatre's Fletcher Hall for the debut of her first feature length documentary.

The 2011 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival takes place April 14-17 in Durham, N.C.

The full release from the festival follows.

Durham, N.C., - February 24, 2011 – The 14th annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival will open with the U.S. Premiere of “Guilty Pleasures.” Director Julie Moggan’s vibrant feature traces the experiences of five individuals from around the world marked by their particular connections to Mills & Boon romance novels. We meet a successful romance novelist whose female pseudonym produces countless bestsellers, a male cover model in search of a soul mate and three women enraptured by paperback romances, whose perceptions of relationships are entangled with the scripted portrayal of courtship. As they navigate love in a modern age, we are captivated by their endearing and all-too-human journey.

“We are thrilled to host ‘Guilty Pleasures’ on Opening Night,” said director of programming, Sadie Tillery. “The film is an awesomely colorful, musical celebration of the desires and realities of the people it portrays. In examining the collision of fantasy and day-to-day life, the film offers a rare combination of levity and heart and serves as a reminder that documentary can be humorous while heartfelt. We could not ask for a more festive opening to our 2011 event.”

Julie Moggan’s extensive travels and background in anthropology have led her to making documentaries that focus on the beauty, drama and humor in everyday life. She has made films for the BBC and Channel 4, and “Guilty Pleasures” is her first feature length documentary.

“Full Frame has a reputation for showing some of the most inspiring films around to huge audiences of passionate documentary lovers,” said director Julie Moggan. “So it's a thrill and honor to have our U.S. premiere of ‘Guilty Pleasures’ at this festival. We hope that our romance novel documentary will get things off to an entertaining and uplifting start.”

Moggan will attend the premiere, along with a number of subjects from the film. The Opening Night Screening will take place the evening of Thursday, April 14 in the Carolina Theatre’s historic Fletcher Hall. The Screening is sponsored by the American Tobacco Campus and Capitol Broadcasting Company. The Opening Night Party will follow the screening next door at the Durham Arts Council. One of the Festival’s oldest traditions, the Opening Night Party will again be hosted by Giorgios Hospitality Group. Tickets for both the Screening and the Party are available to passholders beginning March 24 and on sale online April 4.

The 2011 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival will be held April 14-17, in Durham, N.C., with Duke University as the presenting sponsor. Passes can be purchased online at www.fullframefest.org.
