We are pleased to announce that we have been offered (and accepted!) distribution for Divided We Fall by New Day films! New Day is a film distribution co-op founded by feminist filmmakers in the 1970s seeking a way to distribute their films.
This is such a great fit for us on so many levels. We look forward to participating in a workers’ co-op, we’re excited to meet other filmmakers with a passion for social issue oriented storytelling, and we’re honored to have Divided We Fall included in a catalog with so many Academy award nominees. Incidentally, New Day also has one of my all-time favorite union films: Union Maids.
New Day distributes films to the educational market. Early next year, our film will be available on the New Day website, with options for streaming or DVD. When our launch is initiated, I’ll ask you to recommend Divided We Fall to your local library, educational institution, or community group.
It’s now almost exactly 5 years since I took a giant leap of faith and decided to make a film about our historic uprising. It’s very gratifying to bring the project to fruition, with a high point of this year our screening at the Wisconsin Film Fest and now a wonderful distribution opportunity.
Thanks so much to all of you – for your work during the Uprising, your amazing contributions to our film, and your support over the years.
Happy Holidays and all the best in the New Year!
