3. Public Screening Rentals
If you wish to show a film to the public as an individual, business, or organization, you can do that too!
Public screening rentals can include, but are not limited to:
- Community Awareness
- Community Organizing/Outreach
- Client Appreciation
You can choose any film you'd like to show, however, any film that is being shown in a public setting and/or advertised (for free or otherwise) by your business or organization requires a film license, or for smaller films, licensing/permission from the filmmaker directly, per copyright laws. Licensing fees generally range anywhere from $200-$500 depending on the film and distributor. This must be obtained by the individual, business, or organization putting on the event.
It's easy to request a license for most films! Resources for film licensing: Swank, Janus Films
Rental Pricing: Same as above
