The end of the year brings “Best of” lists and we wanted to share ours with you. Our top selling films of 2023 contain many of last year’s stalwarts (see our Top 10 of 2022 list). Trust Me, which won the prestigious Walter Cronkite Award in June, is our #1 most popular film again. This year, we want to give special recognition to our “Freshman” and “Sophomore” films, which were added to New Day’s collection within the past 2 years.

Here are our Top 5 Best Selling New Releases:

  1. Drunk on Too Much Life by Michelle Melles (Featuring trauma expert Dr. Gabor Maté)

  4. Try Harder! by Debbie Lum (Official Sundance Selection)

An honorable mention goes to one of our “Legacy” films, the Oscar-nominated The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers (2009) by longtime New Day filmmaker Rick Goldsmith. This essential film saw a resurgence due to the passing this year of Daniel Ellsberg.

If you haven’t had a chance to watch these films or others from our collection of over 300 social issue films, it’s never too late. Most of these films are also available on Kanopy.
