Wow, it's been so long since I visited that I don't even know if I ever posted in this forum. And it isn't clear how to find all my older posts, either.
In any case, I'm James McNally, a film blogger located in Toronto. I have been blogging since 2000, and established a dedicated film blog, Toronto Screen Shots (http://www.torontoscreenshots.com) in spring 2007, incorporating all the writing I'd been doing about film on my other blog.
I have been attending TIFF for almost 15 years, and Hot Docs for the past five, and have a strong interest in covering documentary film. As the blog has become more established, I've had the chance to cover more festivals, both locally and even internationally (SXSW and most recently, the Reykjavik International Film Festival).
Though I'm not sure I actually qualify as a full-fledged member, I must have snuck in somehow, and I appreciate having such direct access to the many many talented filmmakers here on D-Word.
Hopefully, I will get to talk with some of you about your projects, both here and potentially on the blog.
