TDL Partners with the D-Word







The Documentary Life, The D-Word


Portland, OR, USA [June 29,2020] – Two recognized institutions of the documentary community have partnered up in an effort to better serve the documentary filmmaking community. 


The Documentary Life podcast is a show dedicated to the conversations of the craft of documentary filmmaking and the lifestyles associated with living the life of a documentary filmmaker. It is a show that inspires and informs other documentary filmmakers on how to best live and lead their documentary lives.

“This is just such a natural partnership for us. The D-Word has such a large dedicated base of professionals in documentary and inhabits a critical space in the documentary community. To be able to broaden the reach of our podcast and to facilitate in-depth discussions on one of D-Word’s Topic Forums is not only a win-win for both parties, but really, for the documentary community as a whole.”

          Chris G. Parkhurst, documentary filmmaker & host of TDL


The D-Word is the #1 online community for professionals in the documentary film industry. With nearly 20000 members, its discussions include creative, business, technical, and social topics related to documentary filmmaking.

“There are several worthy documentary podcasts out there, but what drew us to The Documentary Life podcast is, while it consistently features accomplished doc filmmakers and industry figures, each episode is centered on an important documentary theme or issue rather than promoting a specific film.”

          Doug Block, documentary filmmaker & founder of The D-Word
