About

w(n)td began as an outgrowth of my Twitter account, @1basil1, where I’ve been sharing information about films and offering advice for filmmakers since 2009.

Daily posts cover all things documentary, as my header notes, but typically include:

  • Film Releases: Information about films coming to theatres/VOD/DVD/TV/cable or holding special public screenings in the NYC area
  • Film Festivals: Overviews of select events, previews of new docs, and brief thoughts on docs screened at fests I’ve attended
  • In the Works: Profiles of promising and intriguing docs currently in production or post-production, often while their running crowdfunding campaigns – to have your project considered for coverage, complete this form.
  • Dear Documentary Filmmakers: An archive of my past advice to doc makers, inspired and informed by watching hundreds of new documentary features each year for various programming purposes
