Hey guys!

My name is Kirsten and I'm a fairly new documentary filmmaker but I'm very eager to learn as much as I can. I'm currently in post production on a documentary about a Paralympic swimmer with cerebral palsy. I'm also in pre production for a documentary I'm co-directing on self-harm.

I can't wait to become addicted to this site. Virtual heroin sounds awesome.

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.

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 – 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.

Cheers!
