My Dear Children Joins New Day Films
We're in and excited to be part of this great group of films.
"New Day Films is a unique, filmmaker-run distribution company, providing award-winning films to educators, community groups, government agencies, public libraries and businesses since 1971. Democratically run by more than 150 filmmaker members, New Day delivers hundreds of titles that illuminate, challenge and inspire. New Day was initially formed because the women's movement had arrived and a group of independent filmmakers were unable to find a distributor for their feminist films—so they decided to create one. Today, New Day members sustain the ideals that inspired the company's formation in 1971 - partnership, great stories and changing the world - and curate its collection to encompass a wide range of subject areas."
My Dear Children is among New Day's featured new releases, and our page can be found here. Distribution through New Day allows schools and universities, libraries, groups, and businesses to purchase licensed DVDs or streaming rights within defined timeframes. It's a great way for small groups such as book clubs, adult education classes, and film study groups to share the film with their members.
Here's how New Day's streaming license pricing breaks down:
14-day streaming license $75
1-year streaming license $150
3-year streaming license $350
life of file license $650
We've committed to not offer My Dear Children to a streaming service for at least a year, so for now, this is the only way to see the film.
One of the silver linings of the Covid pandemic is the development of virtual film screenings. Filmmakers around the world have begun using a variety of platforms to share their films virtually and create either single-day events or offer a screening window of a few days to two weeks followed with a filmmaker Q&A. And no one has to leave their home! Over the past year, I've participated in a number of Zoom Q&As after sharing My Dear Children with the members of a broad range of small and large groups.
If you know of a group that might like to see My Dear Children, please be in touch. I'd love to work with you to make it happen.
