Changing the Seattle scene, one less sausage at a time.
HI, I'm Patrice and the founder of the Going Green Film Festival. Wanted to reach as many doc filmmakers as possible and let them know that we are looking for their "green films." If your film was created using green techniques, or if your subject is about the environment/third world issues, or you feature alternative transportation in your film, then you qualify. Please visit our website at www.GoingGreenFilmFestival.com for more details. Twitter @goinggreenfest
Hello D-Word fellows... I am finally introducing myself now even though I have been a member since my D-Word F2F pitch in Washington in June. James L, thanks for encouraging me to be more active on the D-Word scene. I am an Egyptian-American TV journalist & filmmaker. I can't imagine doing anything professionally enjoyable more than making documentaries. This year, I quit my stressful TV news job to work full-time on my ITVS-funded film on the plight of Iraqi refugees. I love making interfaith and social justice films where I feel I can make a difference. I hope I can be active in your discussions and to make many filmmaker friends... www.JehanHarney.com
Welcome and thanks for finally posting, Jehan. Great to have you taking part in the discussions.

Nice idea for a festival Patrice, but rather disappointing to see that only US citizens are eligible for the Grand Prize...what's the thinking behind this?
Welcome at last Jehan.
New member here. I represent Woody Pak, a composer for documentaries. You can check out his work at woodypak.com. Let me know any of you would like some more information on him! Thanks.
I just signed up and happy to be here! I am a documentary and tv producer in the Washington, DC area looking to network and share knowledge. My web site is www.docsandtv.com where I sell a How-To CD about fundraisng for documentary productions. I've also started blogging on that site.
