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!

Welcome Mohammad and Richard. Always a pleasure to have diverse international perspectives.

You should both consider applying for full membership, which will give you access to all the professional topics. It's free, but not automatic.

Hello and a warm welcome to you both, Mohammad and Richard. Mohammad, as Marj suggests (and Richard has already done), do apply for full membership. You'll get to take part in many more discussion topics.

Hello, documentary filmmakers. I'm Churchill Roberts, Co-director of the Documentary Institute at the University of Florida. In September, the Independent Magazine listed the Documentary Institute as one of the 10 best documentary programs in the country. But now, the dean of my college wants to eliminate it. Please help by signing the petition below. IDA distributed this information yesterday. Thanks for your help. Let me know if you have any questions. Churchill clrobert@ufl.edu

Save the University of Florida Documentary Institute!

As some of you might be aware, the College of Journalism and Communications at the University of Florida is planning to terminate The Documentary Institute, a highly respected graduate program that has helped launch hundreds of careers in the documentary field. In an era where the fields of journalism and communications are in a state of flux at best and turmoil at worst, the documentary form is a thriving medium for exploring contemporary issues. A documentary training program such as The Documentary Institute is vital to the nonfiction media-making community.

Please show your support for The Documentary Institute. Let the University of Florida know where you stand by signing this petition:
