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 doc features coming to theatres/VOD/DVD/TV or holding special public screenings in the NYC area
  • Film Festivals: Lineup overviews of select notable events, focused on new doc features
  • Docs in Focus: In-depth background on upcoming Sundance doc features
  • Dear Documentary Filmmakers: An archive of my past advice to doc makers, inspired and informed by watching hundreds of new doc features each year for various programming purposes
