About a week ago I softly launched a blog for Documentary Channel, now to be simply referred to as Documentary Channel Blog (but you can call it DOC Blog or Doc Channel Blog if you wish). There I am writing about documentary news and rounding up other links related to nonfiction film, just as I was doing here at my personal Nothing But the Doc blog. Due to the overlap, I am going to put this here blog on hold for the time being. Documentary Channel Blog will not feature doc criticism, but you can still find that on a regular basis over at Spout, where I write on fiction and nonfiction alike. You can also continue reading my Doc Talk column at Movies.com every other week.
I’d like to direct fans of this young blog over to Documentary Channel Blog this week on the eve of the Toronto International Film Festival, from which I will be filing interviews with filmmakers and subjects where I’m able, while also reviewing films for Movies.com and Spout. I hope you all like and continue supporting my attempt to shed more light on the documentary form through the various outlets I am lucky enough to write for. Maybe one day I can even keep Nothing But the Doc running heavily along with the others.
P.S. If you don’t have DirecTV or Dish Network and so can’t get Documentary Channel, write your cable provider and ask for them to carry it.
