Welcome, Kirsten. The real addicts are those who qualify for full membership – and it sounds like you do. We await you with open needles.
Golly gee. For some reason that does not sound so fantastic.
Well, we don't share them.
I think I better hit the Methadone.... I mean get back to actually making my film. My brain is overloaded with good advice and inspiration. Must ... get ... back ... to ... film....

Welcome Raffaele and Kyle and Regan and Gregory!
Thanks Nick! I've quickly gotten hooked on this D-Word drug, but I'm with Graeme in needing to remember to get back to actually finishing my film – so I can put all this good advice and inspiration to good use! =)
Hi Raffaele and Kyle. Nice to see you here.
Hey Raffaele, did you submit you film to Brisbane Festival? I didn't get to see it at Full Frame unfortunately.
Hello Doug & all members. Im Mohammad Aasim Saleem from Karachi, Pakistan. Currently Im employed with a leading news/current affairs channel in my country. I have over nine years of experience in producing, directing, scripting and etc. having produced documentaries, live transmissions etc. etc.
Also gained experience in developing feasibility reports for channels and now, Im working on expanding my horizon. D-Word should certainly be a wonderful experience to come across and intereact with professionals from varying backgrounds. Looking forward.
Hello everyone !
I'm an independent documentary filmmaker, producer, writer and editor (and a few other things). My first language is French. My latest film "L'encerclement – La dÃ©mocratie dans les rets du nÃ©oolibÃ©ralisme" ("Encirclement – Neo-Liberalism Ensnares Democracy") has had it's world premiere at Rencontres internationales du documentaire de MontrÃ©al (RIDM) in 2008 and it's international premiere in this year's Berlinale Forum section. It was released theatrically in MontrÃ©al (QuÃ©bec, Canada) last February and it's currently touring a few festivals: BAFICI, Visions du rÃ©el, IndieLisboa, Documenta Madrid, Hot Docs, Viennale, Oslo International Film Festival, Ghent Film Festival, etc. I've been awarded a M. Joan Chalmers Award (Best Canadian documentary) for my first film "Trop c'est assez" ("Too Much Is Enough") and a Pierre and Yolande Perrault Award (Best emerging documentary filmmaker) at this year's Rendez-vous du cinÃ©ma quÃ©bÃ©cois for "Encirclement".
I've just found out about D-Word – which surely looks like a nice place to meet doc people and exchange – through Hot Docs.
Welcome Mohammad and Richard. Always a pleasure to have diverse international perspectives.
You should both consider applying for full membership, which will give you access to all the professional topics. It's free, but not automatic.
