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 démocratie dans les rets du néoolibéralisme" ("Encirclement – Neo-Liberalism Ensnares Democracy") has had it's world premiere at Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montréal (RIDM) in 2008 and it's international premiere in this year's Berlinale Forum section. It was released theatrically in Montréal (Québec, Canada) last February and it's currently touring a few festivals: BAFICI, Visions du réel, 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 cinéma québécois 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.
