NYT Withdraws Support for Doc Festival

One of the leading documentary film festival, Durham’s Full Frame loses one of its presenting sponsors. According to the Independent Weekly’s blog, The Triangulator, “The New York Times, which has provided sponsorship support for the 12-year-old festival since 2001, has withdrawn its commitment, the festival announced today, less than three weeks away from the start of this year’s event, which is scheduled for April 2-5 in Durham.”

The sponsorship consisted mainly of a full page ad in the Times, so the festival will not have the promotional boost of the paper’s readers learning about the festival in print.
