New at The D-Word
Have you seen our D-Word collection of documentaries available for streaming rental or purchase? Just click Watch Films in the top menu.
With enough money raised to pay for our big upgrade, we're now asking for additional contributions towards future running costs. It costs us $100 a month to keep the lights on at The D-Word. Which month will be on YOU?
What our members say about The D-Word: "It's a true lifeline for any documentary filmmaker." We're sharing a new testimonial every day.
D-Word members (Professional level) can get special discounted passes for Sheffield Doc/Fest 2014. Here's how...
And for Hot Docs 2014, too.
The D-Word is doing a new collaborative project: 94 ELEMENTS. Join in the planning and discussion.
If you're a documentary professional but you only have Enthusiast status on The D-Word, you should apply for Professional status which allows you to set up film profiles and gives you full access to our industry discussions. It's free but not automatic.
Welcome to The D-Word
The D-Word hosts discussions about the art, craft, business, and social impact of documentary film. Our Public Topics are open to all but limited to just a few discussions. Documentary professionals, however, can apply for free access to a wide range of industry discussions (and more!) in our Business, Creative, Social, and Technical Topics.
Founded in 1999, The D-Word has become the the web's leading documentary community with more than 10,800 members from 127 countries. Learn more about The D-Word.
