Golly gee. For some reason that does not sound so fantastic.

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 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 РLa d̩mocratie dans les rets du n̩oolib̩ralisme" ("Encirclement РNeo-Liberalism Ensnares Democracy") has had it's world premiere at Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montr̩al (RIDM) in 2008 and it's international premiere in this year's Berlinale Forum section. It was released theatrically in Montr̩al (Qu̩bec, Canada) last February and it's currently touring a few festivals: BAFICI, Visions du r̩el, 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 cin̩ma qu̩b̩cois 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.

Cheers!

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.
