Hello everyone! I work for the Scottish Documentary Institute in Edinburgh (www.scottishdocinstitute.com). We produce and distribute short and feature docs; we also run training programmes and organise an annual international pitching forum, The Edinburgh Pitch. I look forward to sharing all the opportunities our Institute offers... But first things first, I'm going to start exploring the impressive D-word resources!

Hi there,

I'm a voice from the broadcaster's side of the biz. I currently work at CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corp) assisting the senior producers with commissioning original Canadian documentary programming for "Doc Zone," CBC-TV's flagship documentary series.

I produce trailers, promote our docs via social media, vet proposals, provide critical feedback on rough cuts, represent CBC at festivals and more. www.cbc.ca/docs

I also package-for-air acquired documentaries for CBC's "The Passionate Eye."

I'll be attending Hot Docs this year – my last official hurrah before I take a year off for maternity leave. Hopefully during that year I'll be able to sift through this incredible website!

Welcome, Flore and Ilka (much congrats on the pending addition)! Look forward to seeing you both at Hot Docs (Flore, over many fine whiskeys at the annual Interdoc revelry). And great to have you online with us here.

Doug – Flore won't be at Hot Docs. Noé and Sonja and Finlay are going to be there.

Welcome Ilka!

Oh, too bad, Flore. Well, see you online then. We'll just have to drink to your health at Hot Docs.
