The chapter tells the history of New Day Films, a film collective founded 1972. Today, New Day is one of the most financially stable nontheatrical distribution collectives in North America, boasting more than 165 members and 1m USD in yearly revenues. Films distributed by the collective have been screened, broadcast and awarded around the workd, studied in media journals, discussed at organised events, showcased in museums and collected by libraries. New Day’s collective (and its collection) provide compelling objects of study for the history of gender and documentary authorship.
