Hi Chris,

Please feel free to send filmmakers to the New Day Films site for info about
how to distribute with a filmmaker owned & operated business. It's a pretty
exciting model to be part of. Our next submission deadline is January 22nd (

Jesse

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
