Ben, perhaps you could place a header on the top right (opposite The
D-Word Forums logo): JOIN THE D-WORD COMMUNITY (link to d-
word.com/community)

I tried but got confused with stuff that's already there (but isn't
showing).

Isn't it fascinating what D-Word co-hosts say to each other when no
one's around? ;-)

I thought I had already done something like that and you had erased it ...

Hah! It only was an HTML mistake, here it is again. I added a "join"
line to it.

the Vice-President for Programming for the New Orleans Film Festival.
This year, we have introduced a special category for documentary
submissions in our competitive division. We will select several to
screen at the festival and we'll award a jury prize for best
documentary. I really want to increase our documentary presence. So,
send us your stuff! Download our application at
neworleansfilmfest.com The early deadline is June 1, 2002 and the
final deadline is July 1, 2002. Our fest runs October 10-17, 2002 and
we treat filmmakers very well!

Thanks for letting us know, Susan. Ben or I will be sure to post
this annoucement in our Documentary Festivals topic in The D-Word
Community.

Wish my new film was ready to submit. Love your city. Love that
Cafe du Monde.

Same thought at the same time, Doug! I already posted it there.

Great to see how this place is filling up. Is it the buzz about our
upcoming Virtual Doc Conference with Jan Roefekamp of Films Transit?
Tell us, what made you newbies aware of The D-Word Forums?

Hello. Im a finnish documentary filmmaker based in amsterdam and who
recently took the leap from print journalism into films. Currently
working on a portrait of an 'insane' and completely isolated juggler -
an urban hermit here in Amsterdam who has just finished coding his own
operative system for pc.
Also researching for a piece about an artist who is building - together
with Technical University of Delft - a mobile art center to be shipped
around the globe from the deserts of Egypt to Greenland to Surinam.
Read about D-Word in an old Dox issue...

Welcome to everyone! Sorry for my ignorance, but is "Sami" a female or
male name?

Oh, don't be sorry... Should have indicated it myself. "Sami" is a male
name.

Hi. I'm a professor of film and video at american univesity in
washington DC. I produce and edit docs as well as short narrative
films and a bunch of stuff for nonprofits. A lot of my doc work has
been in eastern europe, mainly the czech republic. I just finished a
four part series for pbs video on learning disabilities. I teach
producing, directing and scriptwriting for our undergrad and graduate
students. I found your site through a mention on the mediarights site.

Hi, I'm a student of Visual Anthropology at CSU-Fullerton. My aim is
to bring anthropological theory to documentary films. Two other
students and myself have founded a little production company to do
subject-centered docs. We have only finished one and would
appreciate advice on just about anything from anyone. How's that for
open to suggestions?

Good luck with your film, Ahmed. Music docos actually do relatively
well in the international marketplace, so there's cause for optimism.

Check back in often.
