Chris and I are excited to announce that UNSTUCK: an OCD kids movie has signed with New Day Films for distribution.
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. New Day has robust collections of films about mental health, youth and disabilities.
I've been a member of New Day Films for 13 years having distributed six previous films with the collective (including My Brooklyn and Every Mother’s Son). New Day has taught me the benefits of pooling resources and knowledge to create impactful engagement campaigns that connect films with the people, organizations and communities that can use them to create positive change.
We look forward to working with New Day to ensure that UNSTUCK reaches the widest possible audience of educators, therapists, doctors, advocates, clinics and learning institutions. We expect it to make a significant contribution to OCD awareness in schools and with the general public. It will also provide tools and inspiration to many kids and teens with OCD, their families and the professionals who work with them.
